    Kia Ora Marnel!
    Welcome to the Universal Design for Learning (UDL) Group!

    The UDL group is a facilitated space with a wide range of discussions and resources.
    A great place to start is to watch the video UDL at a Glance: /discussion/view/820983

    Also the discussion on Examples of how various apps support UDL Guidelines is also a good way to make connections between UDL and current classroom practice.

    I'm sure you have browsed around the group, I hope you will join discussions, ask questions and share your thoughts within the group.

    I look forward to connecting online with you.

    Kia ora Marnel, yes I was wondering how far people would get before they wanted to resize their badges :-)

    You can go >>> Edit profile >>> Click on each of the images and then one by one, reduce the dimensions (width, height) proportionately and click Insert.

    Let me know how you get on, otherwise I can Skype you through it!

    Woohoo, you're on your way to being 5 Day Challenge winner!

    Smiles, Tess:-)
