Universal Design for Learning (UDL)
Universal design as used in IDEA is based on the definition found in the Assistive Technology Act of 1998. [Section 3(17)]
“The term 'universal design' means a concept or philosophy for designing and delivering products and services that are usable by people with the widest possible range of functional capabilities, which include products and services that are directly accessible (without requiring assistive technologies) and products and services that are interoperable with assistive technologies."
UDL definition from http://www.cast.org/index.html
“Universal Design for Learning (UDL) is a framework for designing curricula that enable all individuals to gain knowledge, skills, and enthusiasm for learning. UDL provides rich supports for learning and reduces barriers to the curriculum while maintaining high achievement standards for all.”
Adapted from the Universal Design for Learning Guidelines v1.0. Download the complete UDL Guidelines Graphic Organizer at http://www.cast.org/publications/UDLguidelines/UDL_Guidelines_v1.0-Organizer.pdf
Universal Design for Learning provides an excellent framework for curriculum design and technology infusion. Use the following resources to learn more about UDL and how you and your school can use UDL as a guide for technology integration in the classroom.
As you read through this booklet you will find a wealth of great software to help implement UDL in your classroom. Here are just a few examples.
Digital Text Tools – Text-to-speech tools give students the option of hearing digital text read aloud
Memory/Information Management Tools – These tools give students a way to record thoughts and ideas as well as a way to manage assignments
Most interactive whiteboards (Smart, Activboard), include screen capture "notebooks" that are great memory tools when used on individual student's computers as well as with a class.
Graphics/Video Tools – Graphics and videos give students additional ways to “write” and present information in a classroom
The North Star Guide to Technology Planning
As a framework for the infusion of technology in the classroom, the North Star Guide is similar to Universal Design for Learning (UDL) in that they are both student centric and share a goal of the student as an expert and lifelong learner. However, while UDL focuses on a highly flexible curriculum design to help all students achieve and be enthusiastic about learning, the North Star Guide focuses on the emotional relevance of the curriculum to each student. Under the North Star Guide, technology tools are divided into six overall categories. You will find many technology ideas in this booklet to help your students find their North Star.

North Star Resources
Here’s a fun activity you can do to help you find your North Star. Then use it with your students. The online version is at http://www.fablevision.com/northstar/map.html
Answer each question below and rate the importance to you by small star for important, medium star for very important or big star for super important. Choose only one star per answer.
Who is important to you? _________________________________________
What special talent do you have? ___________________________________
What do you like to do? __________________________________________
What place has a special meaning to you? ____________________________
What else is important to you? _____________________________________
What do you hope to do someday? __________________________________
Now pick stars below to write your answers on using the largest stars for your super important answers, medium stars for very important answers, and the smallest stars for your important answers. This gives names to the stars in your sky. Consider how you might connect them to create your personal constellation.
Appropriate & Accessible Instructional Materials (AIM)
Students with disabilities who cannot read standard print effectively and are unable to meet grade level standards in reading fluency due to a disability require appropriate and accessible instructional materials to participate in and progress in the general curriculum. Teachers and schools should review the content, structure, and the presentation/media of any instructional materials to ensure they meet the individual needs of the student as well as curriculum objectives.
