  1. UNIVERSAL DESIGN FOR LEARNING ~UDL~ and Wood-Ridge High School Working Together To Ensure All Our Students' Needs are Met! By: Colleen Meyer  
  2. What are the Origins of UDL? UDL is an extension of the architectural movement known as universal design. The universal design movement created structures that accommodated the needs of ALL users, including those with disabilities. Examples include self-opening doors, wide doorways, ramp access, and curb cuts.  
  3. CURB CUTS~a prime example of universal design..... Curb cuts, originally designed for people in wheelchairs to navigate curbs also eases travel for people pushing strollers, skateboarders, pedestrians with canes, or even the average walker.  
  4. What is UDL? What is UDL? Universal design benefits the diverse needs of special populations which increases usability for everyone; the UDL plans curriculum with the needs of ALL learners in mind. (Rose and Meyer, 2002)  
  5. UNIVERSAL DESIGN FOR LEARNING UNIVERSAL DESIGN FOR LEARNING-a universally designed curriculum is a curriculum that has been specifically designed, developed, and validated to meet the needs of the full range of students who are actually in our schools, students with a wide range of sensory, motor, cognitive, linguistic, and affective abilities and disabilities rather than a narrow range of students in the “middle” of the population (Hitchcock and Stahl, 2003).       ? Is this what we always have in mind as we rewrite the curriculum and create our lessons?? ? Is this what we always have in mind as we rewrite the curriculum and create our lessons?
  6. Universal Design for Learning extends universal design in two key ways: ______________________________________ 1. It applies the idea of built-in flexibility to the educational curriculum. 2. It is supporting not only improved access to information within classrooms, but also improved access to learning. ( Rose and Meyer, 2002)
  7. THE 3 KEY PRINCIPLES OF UDL 1. Provide Multiple Means of Representation - The "WHAT" of learning 2. Provide Multiple Means of Action and Expression - The "HOW" of learning 3. Provide Multiple Means of Engagement - The "WHY" of learning *This link displays a graphic representation of the UDL Principles and the checkpoints of each:
  8. The 3 UDL Principles are based on the 3 Brain Networks (3 systems for learning):      
  9. THE 3 BRAIN NETWORKS EQUAL ~DIVERSE LEARNERS~ Brain research tells us about individual learning differences- three systems for learning. It is important to understand the 3 brain networks to understand how students process their information.     Strategic Networks -Learners plan and perform tasks Recognition NetworkS differently. They -Learners gather facts and organize and categorize what they see, express ideas in hear, and read differently. their own unique ways. Affective networks Learners get engaged and stay motivated in different ways. How they are challenged, excited, or interested depends on the individual.
  10. Instructional Methods for Principle One: Multiple means of Representation~Recognition networks It is important to give students ● Offer print and digital various ways to acquire graphic organizers knowledge. Some essential methods include:   ● Provide multiple examples ● Provide relevant web resources with multiple ● Highlight important formats for information information (archival magazine, primary source photos, speeches,   etc.) ● Present content utilizing multiple media and formats       ● Build or activate background knowledge

  12. Instructional Methods for Principle 3: Multiple Means of Engagement~Affective Networks html ● Offer choices of content and tools ● Provide adjustable levels of 1187/ challenge   ● Allow students to choose from a variety of reinforcers   ● Allow options for the learning environment or context   ● Utilize flexible grouping
  13. What are the immediate thoughts, words, ideas, reminders, etc... that pop into your head as you look at this image?
  14. Central Role of Technology in UDL "Technology, in particular digital media, makes UDL implementation practical and achievable in a diverse classroom. Digital materials make it possible for the same material to be flexibly presented and accessed – even adapted on a student-to-student basis" Reflection: What do you use in your classroom? ● Web-based timelines, graphic organizers, and mind maps? ● publish writing online and create online portfolios, books, newsletters, etc... ● engage in online discussions with peers and teachers as well as people from all over the world ● record and edit audio ● use interactive whiteboard php/teachingtechnology/86- great-tech-tools ● create rubrics, tests, quizzes, surveys, maps, and games online ● organize, edit, and bookmark research online  
  15. Role of Technology and Brain Research Technology.....who would have thought a few years ago technology would play such an essential role on our students' lives. Remember, there is no such thing as a "normal" learner. Therefore, through the integration of technology, multiple ways of presenting the same content can be done effectively By supporting the different recognition, strategic, and affective networks of different learners, students are provided with access to information and access to learning.
  16. Impact UDL and Technology Has on Student Learning at Wood-Ridge High School Right Now.... ● Devil's Advocate (Online School newspaper) ● Blue Devil's Nation TV Channel ● MAP Testing (Aligned with the CCCS) ● Google Docs Reflection: What else ● do we offer our students? What impact has UDL and ● Web 2.0 Toolbox Technology had in your classroom? ● TV Production and Communication ● Web Design ● Acellus ● District/Teacher Websites/Powerschool ● Interactive Whiteboards......

  18. Multimedia Sample: Xtranormal This Utube video clip is an excellent example of implementing multimedia tools into the curriculum. Students can create their own stories by typing in their stories or recording their dialogue, choosing appropriate characters for the project, and selecting appropriate background. Teachers can enhance their lessons and students can create their own movies, meeting students' diverse learning needs. Here is the link to xtranormal:
