UDL: Optimizing Teaching and Learning

Updated: Apr 28, 2019

Every child is different and every child, given the right amount of meaningful interaction, will learn. My job is to facilitate this process.

I have been teaching for more than thirty years and I have had many different types of students. Some of them learn rapidly; others take more time. Some forget, others always remember. Some try very hard, to others it comes naturally; but they all learn.

How much do they learn? Do I motivate them enough? Do I provide all the input they need? That’s the difficult part, and technology can help!

Creating step by step lessons; letting students guide their learning, and making learning personal is possible by implementing technology in your classroom.

My current challenge is to create flexible and meaningful lessons for all types of learners. To design paths, to open doors, to monitor their pace and to cheer them. That’s what I do.

And you? How do you implement UDL in your classroom?
