1 UDL uses the same principles used in Universal Design
in Architecture - just like curb cuts and automatic door
openers make a building more accessible, the
application of tools and technologies in a classroom can
make learning much more accessible to every student,
not just those with disabilities.
2 The “MYTH OF THE AVERAGE LEARNER ” is a
misconception causing educators to design instruction
that is only effective for a small percentage of students.
A student with a learning pattern outside this "average"
range is effectively “disabled” from learning. In fact, the
design of curricula can actually create a disability or
remove one. A curriculum should take into account that
students differ in abilities, interests, and learning
processes and meet those needs.
