Universal Design for Learning (UDL) as Pathway to Equitable Learning
8:00 AM - 9:00 AM: Breakout
Room: Executive Suite (Hilton Portland Downtown)
Format: Concurrent Session - 60 Minutes
Brief Session Description: If we want students to develop as expert learners, then we need to support them both inside and outside of the classroom. Not only do issues of digital equity create challenges in schools, but educators and administrators also need to consider who may have difficulty accessing digital devices, the Internet, and/or digital learning supports when they leave school grounds. In this session, we'll use the lens of Universal Design for Learning (UDL) to discuss the three-legged challenge of digital equity - access, devices, and literacy - with a specific focus on considerations and strategies to meet the needs of ALL learners.
