Abstract: Universal Design for Learning (UDL) is a framework for designing
instruction to address the needs of a range of learners.
The UDL guidelines define ways in which flexible options
can be integrated into curriculum and instruction. This paper
presents three classroom projects that illustrate how UDL
was integrated into teaching and learning to support the needs
of culturally and linguistically diverse K-12 students. In each
project, teachers used readily-available software and created
multimedia projects that addressed specific instructional
goals, taking into account the needs of the culturally and
linguistically diverse students in their classrooms. The paper
provides information on how UDL checkpoints are addressed
by each project, defining ways in which teachers can use digital
media in creative ways to support the learning process.
