Teaching Every Student in the Digital Age: Universal Design for Learning
David H. Rose and Anne Meyer, Nicole Strangman, and Gabrielle Rappolt

About This Book
As a teacher in a typical classroom, there are two things you know for sure: Your students have widely divergent needs, skills, and interests . . . and you’re responsible for helping every one attain the same high standards.
This book is the first comprehensive presentation of the principles and applications of Universal Design for Learning (UDL)--a practical, research-based framework for responding to individual learning differences and a blueprint for the modern redesign of education.
The first part of Teaching Every Student in the Digital Age lays out the foundation of UDL, including neuroscience research on learner differences, the effective uses of new digital media in the classroom, and how insights about students who do not “fit the mold” can inform the creation of flexible curricula that help everyone learn more effectively. The second part of the book addresses UDL’s practical applications--how UDL principles can help you
Along with references to digital tools and links to online resources, the authors provide a set of templates to facilitate classroom implementation of UDL, share the experience of a school district already succeeding with UDL, and highlight plans for UDL implementation on a national scale.

About the Authors
DAVID H. ROSE helped found the Center for Applied Special Technology(CAST) in order to expand opportunities for students with disabilities through the innovative development and application of technology. Dr. Rose specializes in developmental neuropsychology and in the Universal Design for Learning technologies.
ANNE MEYER As a founder and co-executive director of CAST, Anne Meyer plays a key role in the design of the organization's multimedia technology. Dr. Meyer applies her interdisciplinary training in education, clinical psychology, and graphic design to develop new approaches and new learning tools to meet the diverse needs of teachers and students in today's classrooms.
NICOLE STRANGMAN completed her undergraduate degree in biology at Swarthmore College and earned a doctorate in neuroscience from Brown University, where she studied the neurobiological basis for pain sensitivity. As a writer, she strives to bridge the gap between scientists and nonscientists by demystifying science for the public and developing excitement for scientific discovery. In addition to her work with CAST, Dr. Strangman is the author of numerous peer-reviewed and freelance articles.
GABRIELLE RAPPOLT completed her Bachelor of Science in Neuroscience at Trinity College and her Master's of Education with a concentration in Mind and Brain at Harvard University. She is currently pursuing her doctorate in cognitive science and education at Harvard. In addition to her work with CAST, her research focuses on the neurobiological correlates of resilient behavior.
