The use of Google tools & Chromebooks continues to explode in education. But how can we use this array of tools to promote a culture of Universal Design for Learning (UDL)? This webinar will explore the three principles of UDL – Multiple Means of Engagement; Representation; and, Action & Expression – and explore ways to incorporate Google tools into the UDL learning environment. From Chrome apps and extensions to Google tools such as Cardboard, this webinar will highlight ways to support ALL learners in the classroom.
