Thinking beyond the Traditional Lesson Plan to Implement UDL Practices in the Classroom
The what, the why, the how of learning is always discussed in lesson observations but imagine a way students could be presented with different information and content in multiple ways.

Maths can provide a whole set of barriers to students. In terms of reading, research has shown that mathematics text contains more concepts per sentence and paragraph than any other type of text.

Let’s explore how Read&Write and EquatIO make it easier to read math, and to create and insert mathematical symbols and expressions.

Four in Balance
In the Netherlands there is an organisation called ‘Kennisnet’ (which translates to KnowledgeNet) funded by the government. Kennisnet studied IT implementations in educational environments. They came to the conclusion that you need four pillars with equal attention for a successful implementation;

- Knowledge
- Content
- Infrastructure
How, in the Netherlands, do we translate this to the use of assistive technology.
