Read&Write supports Universal Design for Learning (UDL) at Chagrin Falls
Universal Design for Learning (UDL) is a popular education framework that supports all students, no matter their learning level or preferred style of learning. Therefore, Edtech that is designed with UDL in mind has tools and features that support a diverse range of learners. The staff and students at Chagrin Falls Schools in Ohio have shared with us how Read&Write has improved learning for every student.
The Chagrin Falls School District in Ohio, which has roughly 2,000 students, first started using Read&Write in the special ed realm, particularly for students with dyslexia and reading comprehension or fluency challenges. However, as Mike Daugherty, the Director of Technology for the Chagrin Falls School District and the winner of the 2016 Outstanding Technology-Using Administrator of the Year in Ohio, explains, Read&Write is now used by everybody.
In this video, Mike, along with several staff members and students in the Chagrin Falls School District, explain how Read&Write has improved learning across the board. From increased comprehension, to stronger English vocab, to better researching and proofreading skills, Read&Write has truly made learning more accessible for all students.
Watch the video below to see how the Chagrin Falls School District has implemented Read&Write in their schools.
