We all learn different ways. In order to create understanding, we need to be able to perceive, interact, and engage in learning in different ways. UDL is about understanding the learners in our classrooms, by eliminating barriers and creating access (or opportunities) for all students to learn. UDL and technology go hand in hand! Because of the flexibility and capabilities of technology, you can impact all learners!

The 9 Types of Collaborators - Infographic | UDL & ICT in education | Scoop.it

If you approach your collaboration strategy with a “one-size-fits-all” mentality, your rollout is far more likely to fail. There exist all different types of users that each prefer to work in their own unique ways – some prefer to work in groups, others in silos, some on iPads, others on pen and paper. They also have different needs for the solution – some just need to share files, or manage tasks, or automate processes with workflows. Learning to recognize the different types of collaborators and their reasoning for loving, or hating, collaboration will allow you to help each overcome their biggest barriers or objections.

Universal Design for Learning and Online Education

Course management systems can provide the opportunity for students with physical and sensory (deaf and blind) disabilities to enroll and excel in online programs. However, if technology and course management systems do not meet accessibility guidelines, institutions are potentially preventing 1 in 5 prospective and current students from being able to succeed in courses and programs. This session highlights proactive strategies for utilizing Universal Design for Learning (UDL) to address and overcome barriers to learning. Expert instructors will also share current and emerging practices being utilized at Drexel University and other institutions.

Succeeding in the Inclusive Classroom: K-12 Lesson Plans Using Universal Design for Learning

Succeeding in the Inclusive Classroom: K-12 Lesson Plans Using Universal Design for Learning | UDL & ICT in education | Scoop.it

Ideal for Introduction to Special Education/Introduction to Exceptionalities courses, this text provides strategies pre-service and in-service teachers can use to apply the principles of Universal Design for Learning (UDL) to their lesson planning. UDL lesson planning considers “up front” potential barriers that could limit access to instruction for some learners and helps teachers brainstorm possible solutions before lessons begin. The lessons included in this text are meant as a starting point for general education teachers who have students with special needs in their classrooms and can be adapted for primary and secondary learners with a wide range of challenges.
