I have been doing some work on creating awareness about UDL in Peru and continue planning on doing it in some other Spanish and French speaking countries. I would like to start developing an international community of learning. In order to do so, I am interested in developing some tools for keeping the communication flowing in the language of those interested in participating.

Math and UDL Issues.

I would be interested in staying connected with math and UDL issues. And science and UDL. Since math has its own particular representations, in what ways can math be made more universally accessible? Also, how do we keep reading struggles from being an obstacle to math understanding?

Hi Maria. I currently teach math and work with staff development. I have some of the same concerns and would like to stay in contact.

I have CoWriter and Write Out loud on my computer. I will be happy to show this software to anyone who is interested.

I am an administrator in a rural school and am interested to share resources, models, and other sites which show implementation of UDL.

Given the natural populations of students in many rural schools, Universal Design offers many advantages as an educational philosophy. Many of the best practices which have already been used for decades are exemplary practices of Universal Design. I set this space up as an opportunity to share
-best practices
-resources specific to rural settings
-administrative/institutional structures which encourage use of UDL
-any other questions, concerns, or thoughts related to the subject

There will be links here to general information about Universal Design, schools using it already, and journals or articles which use it.

I am a previous math instructor and would be interested in working with math and science. As curriculum director I know there are so many of you that are valuable providers of information for me so anywhere I can learn more I am interested.

I started out in a school of about 120 students 9-12 and I am currently in a district that has about 500 students 9-12 so if Matt thinks that is rural enough I would be interested in being part of that group as well. I am sure I can learn a lot and maybe I can help out a bit.

Hi Dr. Rose,
I would like to contact you about the blackboard site at BSC. Could you contact me at MAOC1@yahoo.com?
Thanks, Milly O'Callaghan
