Blending Common Core Standards and Universal Design for Learning

Collaboration and Participation


Student collaboration and participation are at the heart of the Common Core State Standards and Universal
Design for Learning. Todays technology allows us to create flexible goals, methods, materials, and assessments
that accommodate learner differences. Using a single tool we are able to provide students multiple means of
representation, multiple means of action and expression, and multiple means of engagement. The tools utilized
during this module will focus on providing each student an equal voice in classroom discussions and allow them
to utilize their strengths to present content knowledge to both their peers and instructors.
