A key to implementing UDL in the inclusive classroom is ensuring that learners have choices in how they demonstrate their understanding. When writing is the only option for demonstrating understanding, the knowledge our learners possess may remain hidden due to barriers in the means of expression. Join Dr. Luis Perez as he shows you the latest iPad features that facilitate the writing process, including dictation, word prediction, customizable keyboards, typing feedback, and more. He will also discuss concept mapping apps to help learners brainstorm and organize their thoughts prior to sitting down to write, as well as word processing apps that include UDL supports to make the writing process as painless and successful as possible.

This was very interesting. Using the screencast to view what happening made the presentation easy to follow. I was able to do the same thing on my iPad as Mr. Perez was demonstrating. I am going to check out Poplet as a brainstorming tool will all my students.

Awesome! I am excited to check out the apps he suggested: Popplet etc. Glad that he reinforced the use of correct spelling when writing! Using maps to brainstorm is a wonderful way to begin to learn how to outline. I wish I had known how to use them years ago!
