Instructional technologies provide so many new ways that we can improve learning for students with diverse needs.  It all starts with learning to  design lessons that can use different technologies to adapt to individual needs and outcomes. UDL (Universal Design for Learning) provides the framework and you provide the lesson.    

During this course you will build

  • An UDL (Universal Design for learning) evaluation of one of your current lessons  
  • A  lesson (new or revised) using UDL 
  • A reflection of your UDL lesson post-implementation

I liked that the course wasn't isn't about how to use my iPad. It is about understanding why and when digital tools can help me to engage and support my students better.

It is directly applicable to me and my classroom. I am building artifacts that I will continue to use with my students well after I finish the course.

I really like that the course makes me accountable for my own learning. I enjoy collaborating with my colleagues but it is nice that I don't need to wait for someone else to move on with my learning.
