FC: Universal Design for Learning (UDL) | Tracy Green EDUC-6714I-1 Dr. Derby
1: According to Dr. Rose, the inspiration for UDL came from architecture. It was the idea that architects provided alternative ways from the beginning to get into buildings. Examples in the physical environment include ramps and elevators to replace stairs. Closed captions on TV is another example of physical environment UDL.
2: Three Principles of UDL 1. Provide Multiple Means of Representation 2. Provide Multiple Means of Action and Expression 3. Provide Multiple Means of Engagement
3: 1. Provide Multiple Means of Representation | Perception: providing the same information through different modalities- provide visual diagrams, charts, notations of music or sound for students | Language: expressions, and symbols: Provide options for language, mathematical expressions, and symbols- present key concepts in alternative form such as comic strips or storyboards | Comprehension: Highlight key elements in text, graphics, diagrams, formulas
4: 2. Provide Multiple Means of Action and Expression | Physical Action: provide alternative ways for response, selection, and composition- | Executive function: setting long term goals; the use of scaffolding is used in setting these goals | Expressive skills and fluency: provide alternative ways students can express what they know- they may use illustrations, media, music, video, etc.
5: 3. Provide Multiple Means of Engagement | Recruiting interest: providing different ways to keep students' interest- have students make the choices when creating projects | Sustaining effort and persistence: provide differentiated instruction to students | Self-regulation: set personal goals that can be reached; students learning is intrinsic
6: The central role of technology in UDL | Resources for technology with UDL http://udltechtoolkit.wikispaces.com/ | Image by visekart at http://ClipartOf.com/1059795 | Technology helps teachers customize curriculum for all students. | http://www.udlcenter.org/aboutudlcenter | Technology provides flexibility and collaboration of all students.
7: UDL in the building | --text-to-speech decoding support --universally designed digital picture book --variety of ways to assess students with multimedia projects --PowerPoint presentation for visual aids
8: What does brain research tells us about learning differences??? | 3 Networks of the Brain -recognition: the back part of the brain that processes and figures out patterns -strategic: the part of the brain that processes actions and plans -affective: processes emotion and evaluate patterns | Laureate Education, Inc. (Producer). (2009). Brain Research and Universal Design for Learning [Motion picture]. Reaching and engaging all learners through technology. Baltimore: Author. | Different parts of the brain control different aspects of learning.
9: How does UDL support cultural, ethnic, linguistic, and academic diversity??? | UDL uses a variety of technology to support diverse learners. With such a diverse student population, UDL is designed so all students can learn. Many technology tools can be used with all students such as text to speak and language translators.
10: CAST online tools | CAST UDL Builder: Create interactive books to help readers learn reading strategies. Student can become better readers using this tool. | CAST UDL Lesson Builder: a tool where teachers can create and adapt lessons that increase access and participation in the general education curriculum for all students. Teachers can create lessons to accommodate the various learners in the classroom. | CAST Strategy Tour: a tool designed to support students and teachers doing reading and research on the internet.
