You can work with them later.The Goals of EducationLets agree on these so we can move forward:Educators are here not just to teach contentbut to teach students to be lifelong learners!Teachers need to not only show students WHAT to learn, but also HOW to learn.Students will learn to want to learn if they know how to learn in their own highly individual and flexible ways.</p> <p>How can UDL Help?Universal Design for Learning (UDL) helps teachers by providing simple guidelines for understanding how to create lessons that meets the needs of all learners.</p> <p>The UDL principles can assist in reducing barriers, and optimizing levels of challenge and support for all learners.</p> <p>What is UDL?Its a set of principles for curriculum development that gives all individuals equal opportunities to learn.UDL provides a blueprint for creating instructional goals, methods, materials, and assessments that work for everyone.Creates flexible, individualized classroomsNot a one-size-fits-all solutionShoe ExampleQ: What if manufacturers only made one size of shoe?</p> <p>How do manufacturers deal with this issue?How does this idea apply to education and UDL?What can we, as teachers, do to affect change?</p> <p>Why UDL?Individuals bring a huge variety of skills, needs, and interests to the learning environment.</p> <p>UDL helps meet the challenges of learner variability by recommending the use of flexible instructional materials, techniques, and strategies that empower teachers and students.</p> <p>If you plan for learner variability from day one, you can avoid time-consuming, after-the-fact changes.Lets be proactive, instead of reactive!</p> <p>Funnyand Proves the Need for UDL in our Classrooms!</p> <p>Impact on Teacher EvaluationsUDL is already tied to our evaluations.In the future, that connection will be more explicitly defined.The CRHS school-based UDL team will meet with A and S team in January to iron our details.2014 2015 is a no-fault year!What a great opportunity to experiment with UDL!Take this time to explicitly tie what you already do to the Guidelines!Heres a Video!The following video presents a lot of the same information, but represents a different means of representation.</p> <p>https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aaSZqgr2eUM</p> <p>Post-video Questions: Get with your Quad 1 Partner!What did you learn from the video that wasnt covered in other parts of the presentation?How might students benefit from this type of instructional activity?SourcesCAST (2011).
