Innovations are exploding in today’s schools. Through various initiative education professionals and their students are gaining access to technology solutions, tools, and strategies that are increasingly revolutionizing what is possible. However, technology growth for technology growth sake will not alter the way we design, plan, and implement instruction for ALL learners. Cool tools are not enough. Instead, these innovations need to be filtered through the lens of Universal Design for Learning (UDL). By integrating the framework within these technology initiatives, we can change the learning experience, the manner in which we assess outcomes, and the way we support students to achieve the skills necessary for the 21st learning and work environments. This session will explore augmentative and virtual reality tools (apps and wearables), ways to find and connect innovations to effective instructional practices, and ways in which the UDL framework can connect the innovations to the learning needs of struggling learners and their peers with disabilities.
