Students with diverse academic needs should not be treated in this manner in the classroom

Here is my Digital Story presentation on

Technology and Universal Design for Learning (UDL)

Please click on the above slide to see the Digital Story presentation

While doing my research on UDL I was pleasantly surprised that I already incorporate a few of the UDL strategies into my classroom, but I have to be more conscious, and make an effort to use UDL in my classroom as much as possible. It is not difficult, we all just have to make a 'few' changes in our teaching to suit the diverse learners in our classroom. 

If you are interested in exploring more options on UDL, here is an excellent wiki by Karen Janowski, (who is an assistive & educational Technology Consultant in Massachusetts), and in her wiki, she outlines all the 'FREE' resources teachers can use in their classroom.
