Universal Design for Learning (UDL) and iPads

Universal Design for Learning (UDL) and iPads | Education | Scoop.it

Universal Design for Learning (UDL) means designing curriculum in a way that reduces barriers and supports all learners. This kind of design is vitally important for learners that struggle with disabilities. UDL assumes that the curriculum is the "thing" to be fixed - not the students.

Mel Riddile's curator insight, September 6, 2013 9:16 AM

UDL is an integral part of instructional design and the implementation of the Common Core Standards. School leaders should be aware of the three guidelines of UDL and look for their inclusion in classroom instruction.


Three Guidelines of Universal Design for Learning:
  1. Provide multiple means of representation.
    • Making use of the "multi" in multimedia is a great way to offer multiple means of representing material to students.
  2. Provide multiple means of action and expression.
    • The key here is to offer students a wider variety of options when it comes to showing what they know and understand.
  3. Provide multiple means of engagement.
    • Students will be more engaged in learning when they understand the "why" behind it, when they have clear goals to strive for, and when they feel supported in achieving those goals.

A No-Tech/Low-Tech Integration of UDL in Math –”Fantastic!” | Education | Scoop.it
"As the CCSS has been crafted with principles of Universal Design for Learning (UDL) to support inclusive access for all students with identified learning needs and/or disabilities, English Learners, linguistic minority students, as well as students from fragile families, many educators respond with concern that without technological resources, they feel challenged to design instruction to meet the diverse needs of their students. While technology can provide expanded access, there are many “no-tech and low-tech” options that many teachers utilize that are also UDL-considerate." - Jennifer Finney-Ellison

More Tips on Infusing UDL into Your Teaching - Multimedia | Education | 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."

A Great iPad Manual for Every Teacher ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

A Great iPad Manual for Every Teacher ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Education | Scoop.it
"A few weeks ago I posted here a poster on iPad basics which many of you have downloaded to use with their students in the class. Today, I am sharing with you another great resource on iPad. This is not a graphic but a quick reference card on everything you and your students need to know about iPad. From the hardware to networking features , this little manual can serve as a leading guide to a better manipulation of your iPad. I am not sure how much iPading you are doing in your classroom but whether you use iPad just occasionally or you adopt it as a consistent learning and teaching tool, the reference card below will definitely give you a hand in improving your iPad use. I suggest that you share it with your students and go through it with them section by section and make sure they understand it before they start using their iPads again.
