1.The promise of UDL is seen when we consider providing access to the
curriculum for students from a wide variety of abilities and background.
The UDL framework aligns with inclusionary practices found in today’s schools
and assistive technology strengthens the UDL framework to provide a means of
learning for students with disabilities.
Watch the video,UDL at a Glance. After viewing the
video and utilizing what you have learned about UDL, reflect on your own learning
style. Which one of the three UDL principles (representation, expression,
engagement) do you find applies to your own learning strength? Why?
How would the three principles remove barriers to learning as you progress
through your MAED program?
Evaluate the model UDL lesson plan and explain the various ways it supports
learning for all students, including those with disabilities. Explain how
assistive technology is used within the lesson to support teacher pedagogy
and/or promote access to learning for students. Finally, share ways that
you might consider enhancing the lesson to strengthen one of the UDL principles
(multiple means of representation, engagement, or expression) and the use of
assistive technology within the lesson.
