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

"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

Math Videos on Math Playground - Why UDL?

Math Videos on Math Playground - Why UDL? | Math, Technology and UDL:  Closing the Achievement Gap | Scoop.it

Math videos on Math Playground can be used to provide "multiple means of representation and engagement" for students who need another way to understand math concepts and processes.  I know from teacher and student testimonials how effective they have been in improving math understanding. If you have a website or LMS, link to these math videos that support all students in and out of school. Oh yes, this site has math games that kid's love.

Brightstorm - Math Video: Why UDL?

Brightstorm - Math Video:  Why UDL? | Math, Technology and UDL:  Closing the Achievement Gap | Scoop.it

Brightstorm has over 2,500 free math videos from Pre-Algebra through Calculus that offer actual teachers explaining and demonstrating math concepts.  What is unique about Brightstorm is that with each concept, a set of 2-3 problems that demonstrates the concept is included.

 

Why UDL?  This type of online tool offers multiple means of representation and engagement of math concepts that students often miss.  Having the problems explained furthers the understanding for many students who need to see and hear several examples.
