UDL Supports for Math and Science

Martin McKay discusses new approaches to allow students to express their math knowledge and consume math and science subjects in several new innovative ways.

No votes yet

About

Over the past number of years, UDL supports and scaffolding for literacy have become increasingly available, however math instruction has remained primarily and stubbornly a paper-based practice.  

On average, over 60% of 4th and 8th graders are not proficient in Math, and estimated remedial math enrollment continues to rise each year. The COVID-19 pandemic has meant that math teachers all over the world have been thrust into remote instruction using digital tools.

So how can the UDL framework help us to guide our students?

During this session Martin discusses new approaches to allow students to express their math knowledge and consume math and science subjects in several new innovative ways. The expression of accessible math & science by predictive typing, speaking, writing and even OCR of and handwritten math is now a reality.

Design Thinking Process and UDL Meet Makerspace

The authors created a planning tool for makerspaces using the Design Thinking Process and Universal Design for Learning.

No votes yet

About

The authors combine the principles of Design Thinking and UDL in three prescriptive classroom projects within the realm of the "makerspace" movement, with implications for STEM and STEAM.   Students learn to make a stable product, use tools, consider the needs of another, solve challenges, overcome setbacks and sustain motivation. The projects also teach students to build on the ideas of others, vet sources, generate questions, deeply analyze topics, and think creatively and analytically, goals associated with Common Core State Standards.
