Universal Design for Learning (UDL) stands at the forefront of contemporary efforts to create universal access to educational curricula for all students, including those with disabilities. The universal in UDL does not mean there is a single optimal solution for everyone.
This book presents principles and applications of Universal Design for Learning (UDL), a research-based framework for responding to individual learning differences and a blueprint for the modern redesign of education. Early chapters lay out the foundation of UDL, describing neuroscience research on learning differences, the uses of digital media in the classroom, and the creation of flexible curricula. Later chapters show how to set appropriate goals for each student, how to choose methods and materials, and how to assess students' progress. The authors are cofounders and codirectors of the Center for Applied Special Technology. Annotation c. Book News, Inc. , Portland, OR (booknews. com)
