UDL Presentation- APP4ChungH

  1. 1. Universal Design for LearningMeeting the Diverse Needs of All Learners By: HanNa Chung
  2. 2. Inspiration for UDLoriginated from the field of architecturecomes from the universal design movement thatconsidered the needs of all possible userseliminating the need to make changes andadaptations laternot one size fits all- but alternatives for everyone!not added on later- but designed from the beginningnot access for some- but access for everyone!
  3. 3. Examples of Universal Design closed captioning on televisions can be used by people who are deaf or people learning the language curb cuts on crosswalks can be used by people who are in wheelchairs or people riding bikesramps at the entrance of buildingscan be used by people in wheelchairs or peoplepushing strollers
  4. 4. What isUniversal Design for Learning (UDL)? a set of principles for curriculum development that give provides ways for all students an creating instructional opportunity to learn goals, methods, materials, and a flexible approach that assessments that work can be customized and for everyone adjusted for individual learning needs
  5. 5. UDL provides students and teachers with multiple options for... presenting the instructional material maintaining high overcoming barriers achievement to learning standards maximizing student engagement information retention
  6. 6. Diverse Learners• All students are different in abilities, skills, interests, cultural backgrounds, preferences, and learning styles.• There is no “typical” learner and all learner differences need to be addressed.
  7. 7. UDL Impact on Student Learningmaintains high achievement expectations for all studentsprovides flexibility for students in the ways information ispresented, in the ways students demonstrate knowledgeand skills, and in the ways students are engagedhigher motivation and engagementreduces barriers in instructionprovides appropriate accommodations, supports, andchallenges
  8. 8. Brain Research Tells Us... • about the 3 neural networks that work together in learning- recognition, strategic, affective • learning is distributed across these 3 interconnected networks • about how the networks function to help us understand ways to teach and individualize instruction for different learners • about a student’s strengths and weaknesses
  9. 9. Recognition Network• the “what” of learning• how we process patterns, gather facts and categorize what we see, hear, and read
  10. 10. Strategic Network• the “how” of learning• how we organize and express our ideas and plan and perform actions
  11. 11. Affective Network• the “why” of learning• how we process emotions, evaluate patterns, and getting learners engaged and stay motivated
  12. 12. Three Principles of UDL• Principle 1: providing multiple means of representation• Principle II: offering multiple means of expression• Principle III: providing multiple means of engagement
  13. 13. Principle 1 present information and content in different waysGuidelines: • provide options for perception ~ offer alternatives for visual and auditory information and customize the display of information • provide options for language, expression, and symbols ~ support decoding text, mathematical notations and symbols, clarify syntax and structure • provide options for comprehension ~ activate or supply background knowledge, highlight patterns, critical features, big ideas, and relationships
  14. 14. Instructional Examples• use mnemonic strategies• use graphs, pictures, images• provide templates, checklists, sticky notes, and organizers• connect prior knowledge with new concepts• give relevant examples
  15. 15. Principle II differentiate the ways that students can express what they knowGuidelines: • provide options for physical action ~ vary the methods of response and navigation • provide options for expression and communication ~ use multiple media for communication and tools for construction and composition • provide options for executive function ~ guide appropriate goal setting, support planning, and strategy development
  16. 16. Instructional Examples• use manipulatives• use wait time• give frequent feedback• use graphic organizers, story webs, sentence starters, and concept mapping tools• allow for dance/role playing
  17. 17. Principle III stimulate interest and motivation for learningGuidelines: • provide options for recruiting interest ~ optimize individual choice and minimize distractions • provide options for sustaining effort and persistence ~ foster collaboration and communication • provide options for self-regulation ~ develop self-assessment and reflection
  18. 18. Instructional Examples• provide timers, rewards, and positive feedback• use rubrics• give students choice and options in your lessons• assign tasks that allow students for active participation, exploration, and experimentation• use cues and schedules
  19. 19. Role of Technology in UDLallows flexibility and variety in presenting contentassistive technologyimproved learning accesscan help to overcome barriers in the curriculumprovide students with more optionsmaximizes learning opportunities
  20. 20. Examples of TechnologyAIM Explorer- free simulation digital textsSigned Stories- free library of digital books for deafand hearing impairedYou’ve Got Braille- free informational website forstudents to learn about different aspects of brailleCue Card- free flash card program for students tomake with text, image, and soundMore resources at: UDL Center Examples
  21. 21. More TechnologyText-to-Speech BlogsSoftware WikisWord-Processing Online ChatsSoftware Social MediaSpell Checkers NetworksPodcasts Interactive WebVoice Threads Activities
  22. 22. CAST Tool #1UDL Book Builder- educators can make their own digital books foruse during reading literacy learninghttp://bookbuilder.cast.orgparticularly useful with ELL students who cannotspeak English or early readers
  23. 23. CAST Tool #2Strategy Tutor- a free online tool to help students and teachersdoing research on the Internethttp://www.cast.org/learningtools/strategy_tutor/index.htmluseful when conducting research projects inScience and Social Studies to help gatherinformation efficiently and understand it andteaching the process of researching
  24. 24. CAST Tool #3UDL Editions- text that are presented in an online interfacethat provides individualized reading supporthttp://www.cast.org/learningtools/udl_editions/index.htmluseful for students who need reading literacysupport and enrichment, includes translations,text-to-speech, and text help options
