A Universal Design for Learning allows educators to meet the learning needs of all students. By incorporating a variety of learning modalities, teachers are able to engage students, and increase comprehension.

So how do educators incorporate UDL into their teaching practice? To me, the simplest way is to use technology. Utilizing web-based technologies such as YouTube, Skype, and Kurzweil provide a new dimension of interactivity and depth to a lesson. Furthermore, by using the IPad as a teaching tool, teachers can organize lessons, download fun and educational apps for the classroom, and store presentations that are ready to go and easily accessible.  To me, this seems a lot easier than lugging around a giant resource binder!
