Universal Design for Learning :

Universal Design for Learning By: Schquetta Hawkins

What is Universal Design for Learning? (UDL):

What is Universal Design for Learning? (UDL) UDL consist of ensuring that the curriculum that has been developed for the students meets the need of all learners ( http://www.udlcenter.org/aboutudl/udlguidelines ) UDL was introduced nearly 25 years ago (Brand, Favazza , & Dalton, 2012)

Inspiration for UDL:

Inspiration for UDL Meets students learning styles Prepares students for 21 st century learning Teacher provides effective and meaningful instruction

Non-Digital Uses of UDL Examples:

Non-Digital Uses of UDL Examples Group Collaboration Stations Set-Up Pair Up with Partner

Three Types of Networks of the Brain:

Three Types of Networks of the Brain Recognition- Located in the Back of the brain (Rose, 2010). Strategic-Located in the Front part of the brain (Rose, 2010). Affective- Located in the Central part of the brain

Recognition Network:

Recognition Network Processes patterns from the eyes or ears (Rose, 2010). Recognizing smells or sounds (Rose, 2010). The back half of the brain is designed to process and make connections (Rose, 2010). Ex : A student recognizing the color of the sun is yellow, A student recognizing that Red represents Stop.

Strategic Network:

Strategic Network Processes actions and plans (Rose, 2010). The part of the brain that tells the person how to perform the action to perform the action (Rose, 2010). Ex : A student figuring out how to solve a math problem, a student figuring out or remembering they must walk on the right side of the hallway.

Affective Network:

Affective Network Processes emotion (Rose, 2010). Evaluates patterns (Rose, 2010). Can reduce the amount of new information that is provided to the students. (Rose, 2010). Ex : Provide a variety of activities for students to participate in.

Role of Technology in UDL:

Role of Technology in UDL Technology plays a major role in UDL. Technology helps teachers to be able to differentiate instruction amongst students and make learning effective among the diverse learners in the classroom.

Examples of Technology Tools for UDL:

Examples of Technology Tools for UDL Assistive Technology Computer Hearing Aids Glare Reduction Screens Voice Recognition Software Supportive Technology Remediation Software for reading or math Compensatory-calculators, Word Processing, Power Point Extension- Using Internet, create website, videos, etc. (Bray, Brown, & Green, 2004)

Impact of UDL on Student Learning in Our Workplace :

Impact of UDL on Student Learning in Our Workplace Provide more engagement More ways to differentiate instruction for diverse learners Increase student achievement Effectively meeting the needs of all students rather than a vast amount of students.

Learning Differences:

Learning Differences There are three brain networks and these networks work together in order to provide a learner with the skills needed in order to learn/retain information in the classroom. In order to meet the needs of students, educators need to know and understand the differences in how students learn so that effective lessons can be created.

UDL Supports:

UDL Supports Cultural Ethnic Linguistic Academic Diversity

Three Important CAST Tools:

Three Important CAST Tools Site 1- Teachers are able to understand what it means to educate students in the digital and technology age. http :// www.cast.org/teachingeverystudent/ideas/tes/chapter1.cfm- Site 2- Teachers are able to access their own teaching styles and curriculum. http :// udlselfcheck.cast.org/learn.php Site 3- Teachers are able to see how to build effective UDL lessons. http ://lessonbuilder.cast.org/

CAST Tool 1 http://www.cast.org/teachingeverystudent/ideas/tes/chapter1.cfm- :

CAST Tool 1 http://www.cast.org/teachingeverystudent/ideas/tes/chapter1.cfm- Define to teach every student. Achievement of Students Better understanding of UDL

CAST Tool 2 http://udlselfcheck.cast.org/learn.php :

CAST Tool 2 http://udlselfcheck.cast.org/learn.php Self-Access Teaching Style Access Curriculum Seek New Strategies

CAST Tool 3 http://lessonbuilder.cast.org/ :

CAST Tool 3 http://lessonbuilder.cast.org/ Build lessons Understand a UDL based lesson


Summary Overall, the implementation of UDL would be very beneficial for our organization. This tool would provide students and teachers with the benefits of having an appealing and learning inspired classroom which will promote higher growth and achievement for all students in the classroom.
