A No-Tech/Low-Tech Integration of UDL in Math –”Fantastic!”

A No-Tech/Low-Tech Integration of UDL in Math –”Fantastic!” | Math, Technology and UDL:  Closing the Achievement Gap | Scoop.it

 

"As the CCSS has been crafted with principles of Universal Design for Learning (UDL) to support inclusive access for all students with identified learning needs and/or disabilities, English Learners, linguistic minority students, as well as students from fragile families, many educators respond with concern that without technological resources, they feel challenged to design instruction to meet the diverse needs of their students. While technology can provide expanded access, there are many “no-tech and low-tech” options that many teachers utilize that are also UDL-considerate." - Jennifer Finney-Ellison
