Abstract

Universal design for learning (UDL) is recognized as a best-practice framework in designing instruction for all students. Incorporating technology options in UDL enhances the flexibility of learning experiences, providing personalization as well as inclusive educational opportunities. Schools and districts are increasingly adopting and refining technology practices such as blended and flipped learning, 1:1 technology and BYOD programs. This session will review the guidelines of UDL and how Google extensions, apps, and add-ons used in the classroom can include students of all learning abilities. Our objectives are to apply the three principles of UDL to school and classroom technology policies and practices; identify and evaluate Google tools that support inclusive reading, writing and organization; and connect and discuss classroom applications of Google technology tools supporting personalized and inclusive learning across the classroom and community. Opportunity for dialogue on participant technology innovations, solutions and issues for universal design and personalized learning will be featured.
