Applying UDL Principles - National Mall Graphic


Continuing my exploration of Universal Design for Learning Principles, I tried to apply some of these principles in an interactive graphic I made about the National Mall of the U.S.A.

UDL Accommodations:

  • Clear sans serif fonts in the body
  • Audio that reads the text aloud
  • Numbered parts so that listeners could follow along
  • Option to view larger text
  • Links to definitions of "hard" words in the option, "TEXT ONLY"
  • Link to the larger image if the learner can not zoom into the screen
  • Links to more information

Apps for Multiple Means of Engagement

Engagement


Recently I've been exploring the National Center On Universal Design for Learning's website: http://www.udlcenter.org and looking over their UDL principles.

Today I would like to blog a little and share my infographic about Engagement and some of the tools that can be used in the classroom or at home to support it.

Engaged learners have a purpose and are motivated in learning. They are interested, self-regulated, and persistent. How can teachers and parents keep students engaged?
