Universal Design for Learning (UDL) and iPads

Universal Design for Learning (UDL) and iPads | Common Core | Scoop.it

Universal Design for Learning (UDL) means designing curriculum in a way that reduces barriers and supports all learners. This kind of design is vitally important for learners that struggle with disabilities. UDL assumes that the curriculum is the "thing" to be fixed - not the students.

Mel Riddile's curator insight, September 6, 2013 9:16 AM

UDL is an integral part of instructional design and the implementation of the Common Core Standards. School leaders should be aware of the three guidelines of UDL and look for their inclusion in classroom instruction.


Three Guidelines of Universal Design for Learning:
  1. Provide multiple means of representation.
    • Making use of the "multi" in multimedia is a great way to offer multiple means of representing material to students.
  2. Provide multiple means of action and expression.
    • The key here is to offer students a wider variety of options when it comes to showing what they know and understand.
  3. Provide multiple means of engagement.
    • Students will be more engaged in learning when they understand the "why" behind it, when they have clear goals to strive for, and when they feel supported in achieving those goals.
