    Hi Marnel. Welcome to the Digital Technologies group on VLN. Keen to have your ideas and thoughts added. Start discussions, ask to be added as a contributor to resources I have posted. Keep each other up to date with news that you hear about to do with this area. Let’s use our contacts to keep everyone up to speed with Digital Technologies as it develops in N.Z. Dive into discussion we would love to hear your thoughts.

    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.

    Ngā mihi nui
