My latest post for the NEO blog is, Applying Universal Design for Learning in Remote Classrooms. I know that many educators are still concerned about what the beginning of the new school year will bring, but this article will give you many helpful tools regardless of your upcoming situation. Universal Design for Learning is all about creating lessons effectively and efficiently for all students. One of the first videos that I watched when I went to Harvard one summer for UDL training is the Todd Rose TED Talk I’ve embedded below. It embodies the philosophy behind UDL – where we stop designing schools for “average,” and begin designing “to the edges.” Take a look at the video, and then hop on over to my article for specific ways to apply UDL to distance learning.
My previous NEO articles have been: How Distance Learning Fosters Global Collaboration, How to Use Design Thinking in the Classroom, and How to S.T.E.A.M. Up Distance Learning.
