  1. 2013 Winter Equity Conference Digital Content and UDL:A Recipe for Reaching and Teaching All Learners Presented by: Kelly Ray, Resource TeacherBCPS Department of Digital Learning kray@bcps.org x4035

  2. Professional Development Objective Equity Liaisons will be empowered to share features of digital content which reflect UDL and support the diverse learning needs of BCPS students. http://www.bloomingtononline.net/directory/category/Restaurants/11

  3. UDL (Universal Design for Learning) The term UNIVERSAL DESIGN FOR LEARNING means a scientifically valid framework for guiding educational practice that: (A) provides flexibility in the ways information is presented, in the ways students respond or demonstrate knowledge and skills, and in the ways students are engaged; and (B) reduces barriers in instruction, provides appropriate accommodations, supports, and  challenges, and maintains high achievement expectations for all students, including students with disabilities and students who are limited English proficient.

  4. BCPS-licensed Digital Content addresses the three principles of UDL: • Provide Multiple Means of Representation (the “what” of learning) • Provide Multiple Means of Action and Expression (the “how” of learning) • Provide Multiple Means of Engagement (the “why” of learning) http://www.bloomingtononline.net/directory/category/Restaurants/11

  5. 30+ Databases BCPS Databases address these goals and standards: Blueprint 2.0 Goal 1 - Academics 21st Century Teaching & Learning: • Building student competencies for information, media, & technology literacy • Providing efficient digital access to developmentally appropriate, curriculum-relevant content Common Core State Standards - College & Career Readiness - Complex Text - Close Analytic Reading - Writing to Source - Brief & Extended Research - Vocabulary

  7. DATABASES are GOOD FOR YOU and TASTY TOO! “Can’t I just Google it?” -- BCPS students “Can you really trust that the person putting information up at www.Iamaknowitall.com REALLY knows what he or she is talking about?”-- Librarian, Boulder Public Library Website Mr. Database Man http://blogs.slj.com/neverendingsearch/2011/07/06/mr-database-man-a-proof-of-concept/
