"The rapid pace of new educational technologies has made it so that students with special needs can accomplish many things in the classroom that were difficult or even impossible for them only a few years ago. The following list contains some of the best apps I’ve seen for kids with neurodiversities in communication, reading, sociability, attention, and behavior."

This info graphic shows multiple ways that our 2e kids can process, retell, and "show" what they know without ever having to put pencil to paper. At last, light at the end of the tunnel for our very visual kids with dygraphia!

More Tips on Infusing UDL into Your Teaching - Multimedia

More Tips on Infusing UDL into Your Teaching - Multimedia | Apps for Special Education | Scoop.it

A UVM blog from the Center of Teaching and Learning.

 

"This post focuses on one of the three core principles in UDL: multiple means of representation.

 

This means moving beyond textual representation by presenting information and conceptual knowledge to students in a variety of formats, e.g., images, video, and audio. Not only does research indicate that this practice can enhance student understanding and retention of course content, it can also be used to engage students and prime discussion. Students responding to an image, song or movie clip can spark reflection and debate."
