Universal Design for Learning (UDL) is a set of principles for curriculum development that give all individuals equal opportunities to learn. Rather than a single, one-size-fits-all solution, UDL calls for flexible approaches that can be customized and adjusted for individual needs. In this session, join Dr. Luis Perez as he shares how you can implement the key UDL principles (multiple means of representation, action and expression, and engagement) with the help of the built-in accessibility features of the iPad and the complimentary apps for text to speech, speech recognition, and more. He will also cover a number of UDL supports built into the iBooks app, as these supports can benefit struggling readers and other diverse learners.

4 bunny slippers. Dr. Perez explains and demonstrates how technology can allow for all students to have a voice. It allows for creativity when demonstrating knowledge in the classroom. Well done.
