Bobbi Dunham's curator insight, October 3, 2017 10:08 AM
UDL is pretty much just common sense and basic for course design. UDL is an expectation, not an option.
Rob Hatfield, M.Ed.'s curator insight, October 6, 2017 8:49 AM

Biggest Barriers to Digital Learning: Lack of Time, Lack of Devices -- THE Journal

Biggest Barriers to Digital Learning: Lack of Time, Lack of Devices -- THE Journal | Informed Teacher Librarianship | Scoop.it
“ The biggest barrier to digital learning for teachers is gaining student access to technology. That's followed by a lack of time during the school day. For administrators, the top concern is providing relevant and effective professional development to their staff, followed by limitations and problems with the technological infrastructure, such as WiFi and security. Overall, across both roles, the main obstacle to integrating technology into the classroom was lack of time and an insufficient number of devices to do so.”
