Universal Design for Learning iPad Strategies: Text Accessibility

Universal Design for Learning iPad Strategies: Text Accessibility | UDL - Universal Design for Learning | Scoop.it

Kit Hard is an education technology consultant, Universal Design for Learning evangelist, and educational blogger. He specializes in classroom technology integration and facilitating professional development.

Kathleen McClaskey's insight:

Kit Hard has put together a video to demonstrate UDL strategies by using text accessibility on the iPad. Here is what he has to say about this first video:

 

"This first video looks at different features on the iPad that make text more accessible for all students not only by enlarging the font size but also by providing greater focus or by allowing students to add greater detail to handwritten annotations on various note taking apps."

 

Thank you Kit for sharing these effective UDL strategies!

Accessibility to text is yet another reason to engage struggling readers with the iPad. Subtext (in the App Store) does much of what's mentioned here and more.

A nice video on UDL classroom teaching using an iPad and only the software that it comes with.

Teaching in Today's Inclusive Classrooms: A Universal Design for Learning Approach | UDL - Universal Design for Learning | Scoop.it

A concise, accessible, and current main text for the Introduction to Inclusive Teaching course. It is the only inclusion textbook available with a consistent, integrated emphasis on Universal Design for Learning (UDL)--an important, contemporary educational philosophy focused on using strategies and tools to help ALL students by accommodating their differences. This text also provides foundational information about children with disabilities who are included in today's classrooms, and the most effective strategies for teaching them alongside their typically developing peers. Featuring new case studies and sound research-based teaching and learning strategies, this hands-on text offers pre-service and in-service teachers a practical, flexible framework for effective instruction, classroom management, assessment, and collaboration in today's diverse classrooms.
