Universal Design for Learning
Summary
Universal Design for Learning (UDL) offers all students the same opportunity to prosper.
This methodology of teaching and learning offers elasticity in the ways students right to use
material and demonstrate what they know. UDL also looks for diverse ways to keep students
motivated.
Explanation
UDL can be challenging to practically implement in the classroom. The various Universal
Design for Learning implementing strategies for the classroom include; knowing the students’
strengths and weaknesses, as all students are distinctive, and the way they learn best can be as
personalized as a fingerprint (Tobin, & Behling 2018). The goal is to recognize their strengths and
weaknesses, then use that when scheming lessons. Using digital materials when possible. We are
not opposed to paper, but digital materials can make implementing UDL in a classroom much
easier. For example, replacing outdated content with more up-to-date, digital content accessible
online, or use tools like Snapverter to transform paper-based materials to digital and available
materials.
The content accessible in a digital format, it’s also significant to share that content in a
range of ways. This addition can assist to ensure it fits with students’ strengths and weaknesses
(Capp, 2017). It suggests selections for how students prove their knowledge; by giving students
access to video, audio, digital text, and cooperative sites. Taking advantage of software support
and removing UDL barriers. Finally, learning from others since Universal Design for Learning
isn’t new.
