Universal Design for Learning

Universal Design for Learning (UDL) is quite the topic at many conferences and schools around the country.  While I don't admit to being an expert, I'd like to share some resources that help students be more successful.

CAST (one of the leaders in UDL implementation) defines UDL as:

"...a blueprint for creating flexible goals, methods, materials, and assessments that accommodate learner differences."  
There are 3 areas to consider when looking at UDL - Multiple Means of Representation, Multiple Means of Action and Expression, & Multiple Means of Engagement.  Over the next few posts, I'm going to share some of the web2.0 resources that can help you accomplish these things.
