Here are some insights from the author of this article:

 

"UDL Studio offers templates to scaffold you or your students as you create content using multimodal elements, such as text, image¸ video, audio, and animation. You can explore the project library to view previous projects created by UDL studio users.

 

We really like the tips and resources page which asks you to reflect carefully on how the use of the digital tool enhances children’s understanding of text; enriches the reading experience; and represents information in an engaging manner. The plethora of free digital tools include:

 

>> Recording and editing software

>> Video search engines and editing software

>> Sources for images

>> Animation tools"

I really like this video from CAST.  It stresses that the UDL framework is about variation, and the importance of varying your implementation approach of UDL to fit the needs and interests of both educators and students.  There is no one perfect way to implement UDL, and the video talks about this.  It's a good video to put in your UDL toolkit!

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.

Learning by Universal Design | Universal Design for Learning (UDL) | Scoop.it

Neuropsychologist David H. Rose, a principal architect of Universal Design for Learning, says "classrooms need a richer mix of resources and more emotion."

Looking into the future 10-15 years, "we’d see kids who are learning to express themselves in a wide range of media. Some might be writing, some might be making movies, some might be producing plays, some might be doing interesting activities on social media, galvanizing the whole world to care about an issue they’re working on. "

The name "David Rose" is practically synonymous with the concept of Universal Design for Learning.  Here David shares the background of UDL, its linkage with teacher preparation, and its potential impact on the future of learning and education.  Definitely a good read!

More Tips on Infusing UDL into Your Teaching - Multimedia | Universal Design for Learning (UDL) | Scoop.it

A UVM blog from the Center of Teaching and Learning. "This post focuses on one of the three core principles in UDL: multiple means of representation. This means moving beyond textual representation by presenting information and conceptual knowledge to students in a variety of formats, e.g., images, video, and audio. Not only does research indicate that this practice can enhance student understanding and retention of course content, it can also be used to engage students and prime discussion. Students responding to an image, song or movie clip can spark reflection and debate."
