Adopting Technology and UDL in Enhancing Effectiveness of Teaching Learning Process
Abstract: Learner variability in the classroom poses challenges that necessitate analysis by educators in designing effective instructional strategies. Universal Design for Learning (UDL) is a research-based framework that helps educators to plan learning to meet the diverse and variable needs of learners, design a flexible instructional environment, while also identifying and minimizing the hidden barriers to learning. The study adopts a descriptive and conceptual research design, providing an illustration of the methodology to incorporate UDL in the teaching curriculum of higher learning courses in India and different technologies available in this digitized millennium to transform the classroom into a learning laboratory. The purpose of the paper is to highlight the merits of the recent technologies and how they can be integrated with UDL to make learning enduring. The paper highlights a unique pedagogical conceptual model by integrating SAMR model (developed by Dr Ruben Puentedura), UDL and technology to support teachers in designing, developing and integrating learning technologies for high levels of learning achievement. Such a pedagogical model can be considered by educationists to bring a radical transformation in the education system.
