Preparing and Supporting Teachers for 21st Century Expectations through Universal Design for Learning

Integration of 21st century goals into teacher education programs requires attention to diversity, technology, and instructional supports in terms of how content material is presented, students are engaged, and learning is documented. Faced with barriers such as disparities in access to curriculum and technology, as well as differences in background experiences and prior knowledge, teachers in today's classrooms face unique challenges as they struggle to meet the diversity of needs within a single classroom setting. As a result, educators need innovative approaches to address the diversity of available resources, student characteristics, and other environmental challenges. One approach is the integration of Universal Design for Learning principles with instructional planning.

The Difference Between UDL and DI

The Difference Between UDL and DI | Pedagogy and technology of online learning | Scoop.it

What is the difference between Universal Design for Learning (UDL) and Differentiated Instruction (DI)?  In this  explanation it appears that UDL often empowers the learner than relying on the modifications by the teacher.

 

"The significant differences between UDL and DI tend to dwell within the world of the how and when in addressing the diversity of the student and classroom. DI is the modification of the curriculum in order to properly educate the student with his/her specific learning needs or preferences. UDL contrasts this because it addresses the diversity of the student at the construction of the curriculum. UDL also integrates the methods for DI within the lesson or curriculum allowing the student the ability to become more educationally aware so that they are in command of their own education rather than having to rely on the possible crutch of the modifications made by the educator."

Why UDL is Necessary for Education Technology

Why UDL is Necessary for Education Technology | Pedagogy and technology of online learning | Scoop.it

We live in a society that espouses equality for all. It is, in fact, the central tenet of American philosophy. However, consider the difficulty providing guidelines to encourage a uniform approach to education that ensures equal opportunities for each student. It sounds like an impossible task given the diversity of students and wide range of curricular goals. Adding into the mix the fact that digital technology is taking more and more schools online only emphasizes the challenge of individualizing education for each student.
