One Tool Doesn't Fit All

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

In this presentation, we will share practical applications for tools and technologies using Universal Design for Learning (UDL) to engage, provide access, and motivate all learners. Our presentation will explore different tools and technologies you can use to apply the principles of UDL to learning.

We will begin by addressing the need and context for applying UDL. We will then dive into the brain research behind UDL, specifically examining the three learning networks that help explain the why, the what, and the how of learning. Utilizing this brain research, we will spend the majority of our time translating and applying the three learning networks to a variety of learning tools and technologies that you can start using today.

We will explore how to use web conferencing, collaboration tools, presentation tools, discussion forum tools, interactives, mini-quizzes, and other educational technology tools to stimulate interest and motivate learners; to present information and content in different ways; and to differentiate the ways that students can express what they know.

Join in on the fun as we tell stories, listen to music, and play games to better understand that one tool doesn’t fit all.
