PD on the Go: The Power of Inclusive Education

Join us every Friday to see one of our favorite short videos to grow and enhance your practice.

In this video, Dan Habib from the University of New Hampshire Institute on Disability, talks about the power of inclusive technology and universal design for learning (UDL) principles to improve access to education for students with disabilities. The video stresses the importance of designing for inclusion from the beginning.

What do you think?

  • Is accessible technology a part of your technology plan?
  • Is UDL a key component of technology purchasing and implementation decisions?
  • Who is included in these decisions and who else might you invite to the table?

Take this from theory to practice

Inclusive technology is so important for students with disabilities and can benefit all students in the classroom, not only academically but also as we set the example for inclusion inside and outside the classroom. Use our PUWW resources to support UDL and technology implementation for your students: Incorporating Universal Design for Learning, Technology Implementation Practice Guide, and PowerUp Technology Implementation Framework.

See you here next week. Share your experiences below.
