... choice and relevance along with collaboration and self-assessment. Rather than accommodating the curriculum for a few students' needs, the UDL principles work together to make the curriculum accessible for all students.

Jane Strunck's insight:

Mr. Borman used Edmodo to survey his student's learning preferences and based on the results, identified apps that would support reading comprehension and promote UDL in his classroom.  Would love to know how students responded to the options.  Nice process, Mr. Borman!

Kathleen McClaskey's curator insight, April 27, 2013 2:51 PM

Mr. Borman surveyed 17 students in one of his classes and discovered that there were a few needs when it came to reading comprehension. He has put together "A Toolbox of Reading Comprehension Apps" that can support the needs of his students in his UDL classroom.  For each app, he has outlined "What it does", "How students can use it" and the "UDL Principles".

 

Check out the Toolbox:

> iBooks

> Popplet

> SyncSpace

> Odyssey (by Homer)

> Toontastic

> Explain Everything

> Ulysses

> Subtext

> Prezi

 

Thank you Mr. Borman!

4 Ways to Incorporate UDL into Your Assignment Instructions

4 Ways to Incorporate UDL into Your Assignment Instructions | Universal Design for Learning and Curriculum | Scoop.it

"UDL asks the instructor to identify the key goal(s) and objectives of a course or an assignment and then provide multiple and flexible methods of presentation, expression, and engagement. This flexibility does not mean diminishing the intellectual rigor of the course or assignment.   Instead, it means recognizing that a learning goal can be accomplished through a host of means."

George Washington University Assistant Professor, Robbin Zeff, offers four ways that UDL can be incorporated into instruction. Although this was written in 2005, these four advice still holds true. The four ways includes:

 

>> #1: Design instructions with the user in mind

>> #2: Reduce barriers to accessing the assignment

>> #3: Establish and articulate an assignment’s goals and objectives and criteria for assessment from the start

>> #4: Provide examples


Included are instructional strategies that can be easily integrated into the design of the assignment.
