More Tips on Infusing UDL into Your Teaching - Multimedia

More Tips on Infusing UDL into Your Teaching - Multimedia | Universal Design for Learning and Curriculum | 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."

Supporting the Classroom with Materials for Instruction | Universal Design for Learning and Curriculum | Scoop.it

"Materials in a Universal Design for Learning (UDL) classroom are different. These materials will be used to give students multiple means of representation of concepts, multiple means of engaging in learning the concepts, and multiple means of expression for students to demonstrate what they have learned. In a UDL classroom, instruction is more flexible and provides accessibility for all students. Teachers who use the principles of UDL in their classroom recognize that instruction does not come as a one-size-fits-all design."

Common Core Standards FAQs | National Center On Universal Design for Learning

Common Core Standards FAQs | National Center On Universal Design for Learning | Universal Design for Learning and Curriculum | Scoop.it

A snippit from this article:

What might not align with UDL?

Unfortunately there are also areas of the Common Core Standards that do not align with UDL, or would not be very good goals for a UDL curriculum unless certain terms (e.g. writing, listening, speaking and explaining) are interpreted in their broadest sense to make the standards flexible enough to remove barriers for certain students. Previously we mentioned that the teachers should not confuse the means and the goals. There are certain standards that do just that.

For example: "Tell and write time in hours and half-hours using analog and digital clocks" (Common Core State Standards for Mathematics, Grade 1, Measurement and Data, 1.MD, item 3, p.16). The problem with this standard is that it requires students to write time. This presents some learners with a barrier because the act of writing is difficult for them. In this case, express would be more appropriate than write, as it allows flexibility and avoids confounding the expectation with tasks that are superfluous to the actual goal. Or, the standard would align with UDL if “write” were interpreted to permit other forms of expression.

I have some concerns about how the interpretation of the Common Core Standards will impact students with learning disabilities and special needs. This article sheds some light and provides some solid clarification.

Baltimore County Public Schools in Maryland, Bartholomew Consolidated School Corporation in Indiana, Cecil County Public Schools in Maryland and Chelmsford Public Schools in Massachusetts participated in the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation funded project to explore and pilot processes and tools developed to support UDL Implementation within their own unique districts. The story is told primarily through the voices of the dedicated educator leaders from these districts and the UDL facilitators who supported them. During the one-year grant, the districts worked with CAST, Inc. to develop and implement an effective and sustainable district plan to support the integration of Universal Design for Learning.
