Universal Design For Learning (UDL): A MentorMob Playlist | MyWeb4Ed

Universal Design For Learning (UDL): A MentorMob Playlist | MyWeb4Ed | MyWeb4Ed | Scoop.it

Universal Design For Learning (UDL) is a concept born from the work of architects to develop buildings that remove physical barriers so that they are accessible to all people. From this idea, educators began to focus on removing the barriers that work against learning. UDL improves the possibility of a positive academic outcome and deliberately focuses on meeting the individual needs of the students. In addition, resources are provided through websites that support the educator implementing UDL ideals.

This playlist provides an overview of UDL along with some interactive activities to further understanding.
