Beyond Universal Design for Learning: Guiding Principles to Reduce Barriers to Digital & Media Literacy Competence
Dalton, Elizabeth M.
Journal of Media Literacy Education, v9 n2 p17-29 2017
Universal Design for Learning (UDL), a framework for designing instruction to address the wide range of learner variation in today's inclusive classrooms, can be applied effectively to broaden access, understanding, and engagement in digital and media literacy learning for ALL. UDL supports constructivist learning principles. UDL strategies and methods encourage development of expert learners though personal engagement and motivation. UDL transforms one-size-fits-all instruction into diverse, multiple, and accessible learning opportunities that embrace student variation. UDL principles and guidelines offer a unique way for educators in digital and media literacy fields to ensure that their work will benefit the widest range of learners, including those with learning challenges and disabilities.
