      • the general education curriculum for all learners


    Goals of udl
    Goals of UDLhttp://www.udlcenter.org/resource_library/videos/udlcenter/udl#video0

    • Improving access, participation, and achievement

    • Eliminating or reducing physical and academic barriers

    • Valuing diversity through proactive design


    Why is udl necessary
    Why is UDL Necessary?http://www.udlcenter.org/resource_library/videos/udlcenter/udl#video0

    • Individuals bring a huge variety of skills, needs, and interests to learning.

    • Neuroscience reveals that these differences are as varied and unique as our DNA or fingerprints.

    • Three primary brain networks come into play:

    Why udl
    Why UDL?http://www.udlcenter.org/resource_library/videos/udlcenter/udl#video1

    • Schools face sanctions if test scores “fail” to meet state goals.

    • The greater the diversity of a school, the greater the chances for “failure” to meet the goals.

    • THUS, schools need to find ways to better meet the needs of all students!


    Why udl continued
    Why UDL? http://www.udlcenter.org/resource_library/videos/udlcenter/udl#video1(continued)

    • Current instructional practices are not appropriate for all learners

    • Existence of academic achievement gaps

    • Benefits of accessibility vs. retrofitting


    Principles of udl
    Principles of UDLhttp://www.udlcenter.org/resource_library/videos/udlcenter/udl#video1

    • Multiple

      • Representations of Information--What of learning
