Beth Dichter's curator insight, January 12, 10:04 PM

I came across an article in THE Journal called 6 Ways to Engage Every Learner Using UDL. This sent me to the Bartholomew Consolidated School Corporation where I found a range of excellent materials on Universal Design for Learning (UDL). The link provided here will take you to a page where they have three toolkits:

* Action and Expression Digital Resources

* Engagement Digital Resources

* Representation Digital Resources

Each toolkit is 6 - 7 pages long and shares digital tools that will help you each of the three areas.
For example, when you open up the Action and Expression Digital resources you will find the following categories:

  - Options in the mode of physical action

  - Options in the means of navigation

  - Options for accessing tools and assistive technologies

  - Options in the media for communication

  - Options in the tools for composition and problem solving

  - Options in the scaffolds for practice and performance

  - Options that provide effective goal-setting

  - Options that support planning and strategy development

  - Options that facilitate managing information and resources

  - Options that enhance capacity for monitoring progress

You can download each file as a pdf and there is a hot link to each suggested tool.

The site also provides additional information on UDL, including links to a number of other resources that provide an excellent overview and includes videos as well as text based materials.

You may also find the original article (linked to above) of interest. Here is one quote:

"Just like a worksheet can be a barrier and a print text can be a barrier, technology can be a barrier for some students as well. UDL is not about technology but it is about using technology in an intentional way.”

Your content is good. You know your material. You know how to put words together in a way people want to read. You're nearly there. But the game isn't
