UDL Principle 1

How can Web 2.0 technologies help support the 3 principles of UDL?

UDL Principle 1 supports Recognition Brain Networks

The “what” of learning

Provide multiple means of representation:

· Provide multiple examples

· Highlight critical features

· Provide multiple media and formats

· Support background context

How can wikis help?

  • Educators can post text, graphics, video, voice/sound files, and interactive applications to show concepts, skills, and facts in different ways
  • Students can use posted and in-class examples as a springboard to creating and posting their own examples to clarify information for themselves and their peers
  • Where textbooks cover everything, a wiki can focus on only the essential skills and knowledge of the SOL, providing a forum with a laser-like focus on the critical information of the course
  • Hyperlinked text and graphics can link to background information located elsewhere on the web (Slate and Wikipedia do this all the time); students can ask themselves, “what does that mean?” and simply click on the prior knowledge concept to follow a link to an explanation


How can podcasts help?

  • Video (vodcast) and voice (podcast) recordings can provide anecdotes and stories related to essential skills and knowledge that would be unwieldy to type
  • “On the go” format (downloaded podcasts) allows educators to offer students options for more educational stories, anecdotes, and explanation than fits into a typical lecture-format class
  • Students who have difficulty accessing large amounts of text can listen and/or watch to access information
  • Students can access “lectures” on prerequisite information and skills (prior knowledge) on an as-needed basis; this supports the goals of scaffolding and differentiation in the classroom when one or more students lack significant amounts of prior knowledge


How can blogs help?

  • Educators can offer information in most of the same diverse ways as indicated above in the section on wikis (text, graphics, video, voice/sound files, and links to interactive applications)
  • Easy, responsive method of addressing prior knowledge issues that arise during each day and might be addressed online at night
  • Searchable format can be indexed into major and minor topics
