Provide Multiple Means of Representation
- Choose one checkpoint from any of the three guidelines from Principle 1. Provide Multiple Means of Representation.
Within the checkpoint there are several examples and/or resources that support the principle and checkpoint. Next, choose one example/resource that interests you to explore, interact with, and evaluate. You may also choose to consider examples geared toward the grade or ability level you are currently teaching, have experience in, or intend to teach.
Initial Post: Create a Jing tutorial or other multimedia-based presentation with software such as Present.me to showcase the specific UDL checkpoint example selected. Include the link to your Jing tutorial or presentation featuring the example/resource selected as well as written responses to the discussion points below. Your written response needs to be between one and two paragraphs in length.
One of the ways to make your discussion engaging and effective is by including audio of your voice alongside a presentation of the information you have investigated. You can talk through these points during your tutorial. Keep in mind, the maximum length of a Jing video is five minutes so it will help to create a presentation in PowerPoint first that is five slides long with each slide covering one of the five points below. If for some reason you are unable to complete this discussion using the recommended technology, please contact your instructor for an alternative way to respond.
- State the principle and checkpoint (number and description) analyzed.
- Describe the specific example or resource selected (title given), the age group intended for, and the content area it covers.
- Describe the example/resource explored explaining how it works
- Address each of the “Key Considerations” for the checkpoint.
- Share an idea you have for how this resource might be used effectively during instruction or assessment opportunities in your current classroom or your future practice.
