Abstract

** Invited as a paper from EdMedia 2014 **

Universal Design for Learning (UDL) is a framework for designing instruction to address the needs of a range of learners. The UDL guidelines define ways in which flexible options can be integrated into curriculum and instruction. This paper presents three classroom projects that illustrate how UDL was integrated into teaching and learning to support the needs of culturally and linguistically diverse K-12 students. In each project, teachers used readily-available software and created multimedia projects that addressed specific instructional goals, taking into account the needs of the culturally and linguistically diverse students in their classrooms. The article provides information on how UDL checkpoints are addressed by each project, defining ways in which teachers can use digital media in creative ways to support the learning process.
