What does access to learning mean?

Page 4: A Vision of K-12 Students Today  2.

Early implementation

Retrofitting

• Solves only one problem

• Can be costly

• Many are UGLY!

Page 5: A Vision of K-12 Students Today  2.

Universal design (UD) principles

• Not one size fits all

• Design from beginning; not add on later

• Increase access opportunities for everyone

Page 6: A Vision of K-12 Students Today  2.

UD examples

• Ramps

• Curb cuts

• Electric doors

• Captions on television

• Easy-grip tools

Universal design for learning (UDL)

More ways to access… More ways to participate… More ways to demonstrate learning…

Resulting in more equitable access to…

the general education curriculum for ALL learners

Page 12: A Vision of K-12 Students Today  2.

Why UDL?

Current instructional practices are not appropriate for all learners

Existence of academic achievement gaps

Benefits of accessibility vs. retrofitting

Page 13: A Vision of K-12 Students Today  2.

Goals of UDL

Improving access, participation & achievement

Eliminating or reducing physical & academic barriers

Valuing diversity through proactive design

Page 14: A Vision of K-12 Students Today  2.

Access & Equity is Built-in

Designed from the outset to meet the needs of all students
