Kathleen McClaskey's curator insight, May 19, 2013 6:42 PM

Here are some insights from the author of this article:

 

"UDL Studio offers templates to scaffold you or your students as you create content using multimodal elements, such as text, image¸ video, audio, and animation. You can explore the project library to view previous projects created by UDL studio users.

 

We really like the tips and resources page which asks you to reflect carefully on how the use of the digital tool enhances children’s understanding of text; enriches the reading experience; and represents information in an engaging manner. The plethora of free digital tools include:

 

>> Recording and editing software

>> Video search engines and editing software

>> Sources for images

>> Animation tools"
