  1. Learner Variation & Universal Design for Learning Supporting students’ learning in effective ways

  2. People learn in different ways • Some are good readers • Some learn by listening • Some speak English • Some may not hear well • Some are poor readers • Some learn by doing • Some speak other languages • Some may not see well Everyone has ways in which they learn best!!

  3. How can we support learning in a different ways? From single paths… • Read, Listen, Write, Speak, Manipulate Calculations,Remember Concepts and Procedures To multiple paths… • Take in information, Express information,Demonstrate understanding of processes,Demonstrate understanding of concepts & ideas,Show what they know in formats that are personally accessible • Using… • Auditory, Visual, Tactile, Kinesthetic, Multisensory,Demonstration, Manipulatives, Creative Routes, Outcome-Based

  4. What’s it all about? Universal Design for Learning Variation UDL SUPPORTS VARIATION by applying MULTIPLE MEANS in DESIGN AND DELIVERY of INSTRUCTION

  5. The UDL Wheel for Guideline Exploration http://udlwheel.mdonlinegrants.org/ Developed through Towson University Elizabeth BerquistEBerquist@towson.edu (currently piloting a hand-held APP version)

  6. Technology & UDL • Technology provides tools that support functions to accomplish goals • UDL impacts goals, materials, instruction & assessment Technology is one of the tools in the UDL Toolbox to support the attainment of goals. A very POWERFUL tool! CAST, 2003

  7. TECHNOLOGY SUPPORTS ACCESS. TECHNOLOGY TRANSFORMS. • Allows manipulation and controlof format • Offers alternatives for access • Supportsmulti-sensoryinstruction • Supports greater personalindependence • Use general technology & assistive technology together – a continuum of access

  8. Simple ideas for UDL • To vary means of REPRESENTATION • Use color to highlight key terms or ideas • Use pictures to reduce language barriers • To vary means of EXPRESSION • Encourage verbal restatement by students • Encourage demonstration to peers and to you • To vary means of ENGAGEMENT • Help students relate content to their own lives • Have students share & support each other by working in pairs
