Tech Toolkit for UDL in All Classrooms

I really like the Featured Sites of the Week from TeachersFirst. This week I noticed a link to a site with technology resources to go along with UDL (Universal Design for Learning): Free Technology Toolkit for UDL in All Classrooms.

Here are some of the categories of resources available from this site:
  • Graphic Organizers
  • Literacy tools
  • Writing Tools
  • Multimedia & Digital Storytelling Tools
  • Study Skill Tools
  • Research Tools
  • AudioBooks
  • Math Tools
  • Collaborative Tools

You can also find information about Universal Design for Learning (UDL). Some interesting things I found on that information page include that UDL involves multiple methods of representation, engagement, and expression to promote learning for ALL students.

This collection of resources was assembled with the idea that every classroom computer can be used to promote learning for all students based on the principles of UDL. These tools provide improved access and accomodate for learner differences. Additionally they are fun and engaging!

Our goal is student learning, so here are some more free tools to help us reach that goal in as many ways as we can.
