Teachers really want every student to succeed but it is challenging meeting everyone’s needs at once.
That’s where Universal Design for Learning (UDL), coupled with digital technology, can be so powerful. UDL provides us with a framework to design curriculum and environments that cater for everyone from the outset. Digital technologies can:
provide new ways for students to engage in learning and build social and global connections
enhance personalised learning and support a student centered curriculum
offer greater flexibility, the ability to customise lessons
access to a rich mix of multimedia curriculum support materials
Our questions are:
how are you using technologies to support a diverse range of learners?
can you identify some school-wide and classroom technologies to support students?
