Universal design for learning | Education homework help

 

According to www.udlcenter.org,

“Universal Design for  Learning is a set of principles for curriculum development that give all  individuals equal opportunities to learn.

UDL provides a blueprint for  creating instructional goals, methods, materials, and assessments that  work for everyone–not a single, one-size-fits-all solution but rather  flexible approaches that can be customized and adjusted for individual  needs.”

Go to the Learning Resources Section for this week and find the Universal Design Videos and Handouts.

Watch one of the videos and read one of  the handouts, being sure to take notes on what you are learning about  Universal Design. Be sure to give yourself enough time and to take  notes.

Based on this information you learned from the video and handout on Universal Design, give responses to the following items:

  • Compare Universal Design to traditional education that you  may have experienced.  Give two ways they are similar and two ways they  are different.
  • How does UDL specifically help students of all learning needs?  Give three ways that it specifically helps.
  • Give two examples of how you would implement UDL into a preschool classroom and why.
  • Name 2 things you are unsure about or would like to know more about with UDL.
