ISTE Course | Universal Design for Learning (Feb 4-March 15, 2013) | Universal Design for Learning and Curriculum | Scoop.it

"The principles of Universal Design for Learning provide educators with a framework to plan lessons to make instruction accessible to every student. In this course, we will work through six weeks of online activities. All of the activities are designed to further the team goal of experiencing free technology to help teachers plan lessons in a way that makes the content accessible to the widest possible audience. Throughout the course, participants will learn practical methodologies for representing content using multiple modalities, providing the means for students to demonstrate what they know using a variety of tools, and engaging learners using high-interest, authentic practices."

The average student does not exist.  

 

Todd Rose urges educators not to base education on the 'average student,' but to understand and design for variability in everything from curriculum design to the way we teach to how learning is assessed."

ISTE SETSIG Webinar: Built-in IOS Accessibility and Alternative Access to the iPad

ISTE SETSIG Webinar: Built-in IOS Accessibility and Alternative Access to the iPad | Universal Design for Learning and Curriculum | Scoop.it

This webinar will focus on the many universal design technologies built-in to the iOS. This will be followed by alternative access options to the iPad – from styluses, to keyguards, to switches. Access options built into the iOS and into specific apps will be also be discussed. We will cover the range of switch interfaces that offer compatibility to switch accessible apps – and participants will be given links to resources for finding switch accessible apps. This year has also seen the release of a few more comprehensive alternative access options – offering switch access between apps as well as within many apps. Some of these also offer control of your iPad via wheelchair joysticks. These more comprehensive hardware and software alternative access options will be covered – as well as a discussion of the role that the iOS accessibility features of VoiceOver and AssistiveTouch play in alternative access.

Universal Design for Learning - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Universal Design for Learning (UDL) is an educational framework based on research in the learning sciences, including cognitive neuroscience, that guides the development of flexible learning environments that can accommodate individual learning differences.[1]

Recognizing that the way individuals learn can be unique, the UDL framework, first defined by the Center for Applied Special Technology(CAST) in the 1990s,[2] calls for creating curriculum from the outset that provides:

Curriculum, as defined in the UDL literature, has four parts: instructional goals, methods, materials, and assessments.[5] UDL is intended to increase access to learning by reducing physical, cognitive, intellectual, and organizational barriers to learning, as well as other obstacles. UDL principles also lend themselves to implementing inclusionary practices in the classroom.
