Chrissie, Patrick and I have just taken part in #udlchat on Twitter - It was hugely fast paced, but an awesome experience! Some of the key conversations posed in the chat were:

Q1: What is your core belief or general understanding of UDL?  

Q2: UDL embraces learner variability. What does that mean to you? What does or could it look like in your classroom? 

Q2 part 2: What tools must tchrs have to address learner variability?

Q3: What is one goal you have for including UDL in your upcoming school year? What action steps will you take? 

It would be great to hear what NZ educators are thinking - share your thoughts! 

One of  the participants @KatieNovakUDL shared a video link to a great example of UDL in her classroom

#udlchat is on every 1st and 3rd Friday of every month (at 12 pm NZ time)

    #UDLchat on twitter - 1st and 3rd Thursday's, 3pm. Hear what professionals internationally are saying about UDL

    This weeks theme was about linking learning methods and strategies to UDL

    Q1: Beyond UDL - What learning methods or strategies do you use? (ex. PBL, cooperative learning, etc.) and Why? 

    *PBL or PBIS is Positive Behavioural Interventions and Supports 

    Q2: Connecting UDL - How does your learning method or strategy connect or align with UDL? Are there ways it does not?

    Q3: Go deeper - How could you make the connection between your learning method or strategy and UDL stronger? 

    Check out the dialogue in this #udlCHAT storify  

    So how do kiwi teachers stack up against our US/Canadian counterparts? Are we using similar strategies? Do we have any uniquely NZ strategies that connect or align with UDL?
