Universal Design Principles, Process and Applications
  4. 4. Video – Animal Story • When you watch this video think of how you learn….which animal are you? How many children do you think we lose as a result?
  5. 5. Animal Story • http://specialedlaw.blogs.com/home/2007
  6. 6. Much of the information from this class on UDL can be located at the CAST website @ http://www.cast.org/
  7. 7. What is UDL? (15 minutes) • Universal Design for Learning is a theoretical framework developed by CAST to guide the development of curricula that are flexible and supportive of all students (Dolan & Hall, 2001; Meyer & Rose, 1998; Pisha & Coyne, 2001; Rose, 2001; Rose & Dolan, 2000; Rose & Meyer, 2000a, 2000b, 2002; Rose, Sethuraman, & Meo, 2000). • Concept was inspired by the UD movement in architecture i.e., curb cuts
  8. 8. How did it start? • Curb Cuts
  9. 9. What is UDL?  A combination of recent initiatives  Integrated units  Multi-sensory teaching  Use of assistive technology  Performance-based assessment
  10. 10. Assistive Technology (AT) Assistive technology is technology used by individuals with disabilities in order to perform functions that might otherwise be difficult or impossible. Assistive technology can include mobility devices such as walkers and wheelchairs, as well as hardware, software, and peripherals that assist people with disabilities in accessing computers or other information technologies. (http://www.washington.edu/accessit/articles?109)
  11. 11. Universal Design (UD) Create products and/or environments that are designed, from the outset, to accommodate individuals with a range of abilities and disabilities.
  12. 12. Are AT and UDL the same? AT UDL • …any piece of equipment • To select and use goals, or product system…that methods, assessment is used to increase, and materials in a way maintain, or improve that will minimize barriers functional capabilities of and maximize flexibility individuals with so that curricula fully disabilities (IDEA, 2004 P. support every student’s 108-446) access, participation, and progress in essential facets of learning (Joy Zabala, Sept. 2006)
  13. 13. Electronic Doors AT UD
  14. 14. Purpose • Purpose of AT – To increase, improve or maintain the functional capabilities of individuals with disabilities (Joy Zabala, Sept. 2006) • Purpose of UDL – to increase the access in the general curriculum for students with and without identified disabilities (Joy Zabala, Sept. 2006) • Educational Outcome – increased educational participation and achievement (Joy Zabala, Sept. 2006)
  15. 15. Brain Research and Learner Differences • Learning is distributed along three interconnected networks Affective WHY we learn Strategic HOW we learn Recognition Brain Research WHAT we learn
  16. 16. Your Three Brain Networks Activity (10 minutes)…….
  17. 17. 1. Recognition Networks Exercise your recognition networks' processing by quickly listing the individual objects you recognize in this picture. (1 minute) Activity: Reflecting on Recognition….
  18. 18. 2. Exercise your strategic networks by examining this image for a few different purposes. Notice how you look at the image differently depending on your purpose. (1 minute) Activity: Reflecting on strategic…. How old do the people in the picture look? What historical period and geographical location do you think this picture represents? Why? How might the people be feeling in this picture?
  19. 19. 3. Affective Networks Tune into your affective networks by looking at this picture once again, just to see what grabs you. (1 minute) Activity: Reflecting on Affective…. What in particular strikes you about this picture? Note something about yourself that might have led you to focus on these particular aspects.
  20. 20. Discussion (report back on Networks – 7 minutes) Did everyone answer the same? Why?
  21. 21. Think about the ways you would and would not like to learn to do this
  22. 22. Consider the following in regard to the preparing the Indian meal I would learn best if… I would not learn very well if … Think about the three networks when answering these questions.
  23. 23. Think about the ways you would and would not like to learn to do this Recognition networks enable us to identify and understand information, ideas, and concepts. Strategic networks enable us to plan, execute, and monitor actions and skills. Affective networks enable us to engage with tasks and learning and with the world around us.
  24. 24. Activity….Part 1 You must learn how to cook this delicious Indian meal, for 4 people – get into groups of 6 and work together to create a lesson plan – use the chart paper to outline your lesson - think about what you need to do to teach this lesson. How do you make the experience work for everyone at your table? Think about the three networks. (15 minutes)
  25. 25. Activity Part 2 • Present to class (2 minutes/group – 10 minutes) • Group Discussion – How did you learn best – relate this to the students you will work with - 2 minutes
  26. 26. Prediction of the Future • EPIC_2014 - Video – 8:54 minutes
  27. 27. Discussion (5 minutes) • Do you think that this is far fetched? Why? Why Not? • What do you think about the move to technology for all? • After learning what you have today what type of a role do you think technology plays in regards to special needs students?
  28. 28. The Principles of UDL from: Rose and Meyer – Teaching Every Child in the Digital Age (10 minutes) • Principle 1: To support recognition learning, provide multiple, flexible methods of presentation • Principle 2: To support strategic learning, provide multiple, flexible methods of expression and apprenticeship. • Principle 3: To support affective learning, provide multiple, flexible options for engagement. Principles of UDL
  29. 29. Methods of Universal Design for Learning Goal Strategy What that means? Recognition Provide Multiple Examples Present patterns using multisensory approaches with many examples and counter examples Highlight critical features Explicitly identify critical features in examples Provide multiple media and Provide redundancy of patterns formats and critical features through a variety of media, formats, organizations, detail, and depth allowing the learner to access information in the way in which it best fits the individual’s learning style
  30. 30. Methods of Universal Design for Learning con’t Goal Strategy What that means? Recognition con’t Support background knowledge Ask learners to relate own experiences to topic being studied, to relate what is already known about topic being studied, and review key vocabulary and concepts prior to studying topic Strategic Provide flexible models of skilled performance Present examples and counter examples of expert performance, and allow the learner the choice of how to express knowledge and skills Provide scaffolding opportunities Allow learner to become proficient with each step of a task before performing entire task
  31. 31. Methods of Universal Design for Learning con’t Goal Strategy What that means? Strategic Provide multiple media and formats Provide ongoing, relevant feedback Affective Offer choices of content and tools Allow for flexibility in learning style as well as areas of interest and ability Provide adjustable levels of Assist learners in setting challenge individualized and realistic goals based on level of task difficulty and individual frustration level
  32. 32. Methods of Universal Design for Learning con’t Goal Strategy What that means? Affective Offer choice of rewards Identify individualized intrinsic and extrinsic rewards for each learner Offer choice of learning context Allow learners to choose the amount of structure and types of materials needed to complete an assignment
