Free Tech Toolkit for UDL - Wiki Edition

One of the best things that resulted when I attended BLC 08 was the opportunity to have many conversations with Joyce Valenza, the world-renown teacher librarian and self-proclaimed "information goddess." She is one of the most dynamic, energetic, and passionate educators that I have ever met.

Well, lucky for us, Joyce took on a project and I am thrilled to share the fruits of her labors which we can all benefit from.

Many of you have added the blog post, Free Technology Toolkit for UDL in Every Classroom to your delicious accounts. Joyce took that blog post and made it into a wiki, UDLTech Toolkit, that is easy to navigate and visually more appealing than the blog. I encourage you to bookmark this wiki also. Here is a screen shot of the home page. I'm sure you will agree that this is a much easier tool to use and there are additions there that are not in the blot post.
Check it out and let me know what you think. And please, pass along this resource to colleagues, parents and students.

I went to an AT conference in NH and met some SPED directors,I just shared your site and Joyce's wiki. Great stuff available for all! Let's figure out a way we can get the teachers trained and on board.

Thrilled you are finding this helpful - please pass this resource along to your colleagues. We need to let students know about these tools to help them develop their own tool belts.
