It needs downloading - obviously - and I'm not sure I want all this on my computer yet.  I'll have to wait until I have a ground-breaking idea for my next online, budget Hollywood movie.

UDL & the Common Core State Standards | National Center On Universal Design for Learning | UDL & ICT in education | Scoop.it

The National UDL Task Force created a UDL and Common Core FAQs brief to help educators, parents and advocates learn more about how UDL and the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) align with each other. The brief explains why UDL is mentioned in the CCSS and which parts of the CCSS directly align with UDL and which do not. It offers a description of how teachers can use the UDL framework and CCSS together to support the development of clear, effective instructional goals

Kathleen McClaskey's curator insight, November 25, 2013 10:40 AM

Universal Design for Learning (UDL) has a great ring to it as it infers that lessons and instruction are designed for all learners in the classroom. Can you imagine learning environments where all learners can thrive? Using the UDL lens to understand the learners in your classroom can help teachers do exactly that.

 

Placing this concept in the field of education, the Center for Applied Special Technology (CAST) coined UDL to apply to all learners, regardless of (dis)abilities. In 2003, CAST has been creating instructional materials for over 10 years, mostly digital, to fit this principle of “universal”. Now 10 years later, the concept is finally becoming more known in our new times of the Common Core and increasingly accessible digital technologies.

I'm not sure how this differs from using Google docs but, as this has been developed by writers specifically for collaborative writing I think this will be of interest to Learning Developers

Dean Mantz's curator insight, September 22, 2013 11:05 PM

This looks to be another collaboration site that follows the footsteps of Titan Pad, Type With Me, Zoho, and Google Docs.
