UDL stands for Universal Design for Learning. This means that all students have the right to access all the curriculum! If a student is unable to access the curriculum due to a disability, then we need to find a way to bridge that gap for them! Let me show you how we can do that for students.
What does that look like in a classroom?
How do I do that in my classroom?
When you're working in the library, you can have access to technology that can help students access library materials if they are unable to read the text! When doing research for science, using the app Epic to allow students to do research and having the text read to them!
Everyone gets what they need to be successful! It isn't what's equal, it's what's equitable!
But don't I need to give everyone an Ipad? If one student has an Ipad it isn't fair for the rest of the class!
Here are some of the options you could use in your classroom to help assist students in their learning! These technologies are all available in your schools today.
