In a world of iPads, chromebooks, learning management systems, and a billion dollar educational technology industry, it is easy to get enticed to use technology tools that promise to improve learner outcomes, make learning easier, or profoundly engage the digital natives in our classrooms. While technology can power our learning, without the UDL framework as a guide, it is a tool without a purpose and a source of disengagement for learners. This session explains the importance of using UDL as a research-based method for applying classroom technologies, steps for successful technology incorporation, and examples of how teachers can use specific tools to enhance the learning environment to engage learners. See how teachers in Bartholomew Consolidated School Corporation leverage technology to engage and remove barriers for learners and specific tools used to do so through teacher examples, student testimonials, and model lesson exemplars.
