Universal Design for Learning (UDL) is a research based principal that explains how teachers can meet the needs of every student in their classroom. There are strong correlations between the UDL framework and the Technology Innovation Progression Chart (TIPC) as witnessed by the fact that both frameworks attempt to minimize standards based teaching barriers by stressing flexibility, multiple means of engagement, and student choice. The goal of UDL revolves around the following 3 principles to help individualize instruction -
  • To represent information in multiple formats and media. 
  • To provide multiple pathways for students action and expression. 
  • To provide multiple ways to engage students interest and motivation.
