The purpose of this project was to design curriculum materials for preservice teachers that will help them plan lessons that integrate technology and the principles of Universal Design for Learning to meet the varied needs of their students.

The goal of this design is to model a Universally Designed learning experience for undergraduate students as they plan their own technology integration lessons using the principles of Universal Design for Learning. After this unit, students were be able to write clear lesson goals, plan for learner variability by providing multiple points of access through flexible methods and materials, and use technology to provide multiple means of engagement, representation, action and expression to their students.
