Access, Engage, and Express (TM) is the lens for understanding how anyone learns best. The reason we came up with these three words was to help educators easily understand their learners using this lens. We want Access, Engage, and Express to be an integral part of their daily approach to teaching and learning.  Using Access, Engage and Express was developed from the Universal Design for Learning® (UDL) principles that are based on neuroscience and how we learn.

"UDL is the framework for Personalized Learning."

Why do teachers and learners need a lens for learning? This post will share the importance of understanding how you learn best. Access is about how you transform and process information into useable knowledge. Engage is how you best engage with content. Express is how you demonstrate what you know and understand. If you use this lens, you and your teacher become partners in learning.

The UDL 2.0 Guidelines can assist anyone who plans lessons/units of study or develops curricula (goals, methods, materials, and assessments) to reduce barriers, as well as optimize levels of challenge and support, to meet the needs of all learners from the start. They can also help educators identify the barriers found in existing curricula. You can use the UDL Guidelines to help you determine your learners strengths, interests, and challenges and how they:

 

> prefer or need to access and process information.

> prefer to express what they know.

> like to engage with the content.

 

When learners know how they prefer or need to access information, engage with the content, and express what they know and understand, then they take responsibility for their learning.

UDL Principles guide learners to understand how they learn best. They determine how they prefer or need to access information, engage with content, and express what they know.

Reading Assignments the #UDL Way: Creating Meaning and Interaction

Reading Assignments the #UDL Way: Creating Meaning and Interaction | UDL - Universal Design for Learning | Scoop.it
Kathleen McClaskey's insight:

Matt Bergman shares some excellent tools, strategies and steps in creating meaning and interaction in reading assignments. Discover how you can universally design your reading lessons this year. Here are a few highlights of those steps:

 

> Step 1: Have a central location to place all of your supports in one easy-to-find place. LiveBinders is a great way of helping keep everything organized and together!

> Step 2: Provide multiple ways of reading the assignment (aka Multiple Means of Representation). Give students the option of using paper, PDF's, and audio copies of text. Audacity and AudioBoo are great for producing audio!

> Step 3: Provide vocabulary supports! Use Quizlet to pre-teach vocabulary and provide a way for students to review terms when they are confused or need to study. Provide vocabulary supports for words students don't know like using Visuwords or Shahi.

> Step 4: Engage Students Differently to Find Meaning: use Read-Write-Think's Venn Diagram Maker

> Step 5: Show What You Know: use Padlet as a way for students to answer the essential question of the lesson.
