Universal Design for Learning is a teaching framework developed based on decades of scientific research on how humans learn. CrossBraining was built on this framework so that teachers can unlock UDL’s potential in their classroom. In this series, we will delve deep into UDL and how CrossBraining’s platform uses it to drive learning.
The UDL framework often repeats the phrase “multiple means”. This is a nod to both the diversity of learners and how humans learn better through multiple pathways. It seems obvious that a student will learn more about dinosaurs if they read a book about them, then listen to a podcast, then visit a museum, and then do a project. But it’s not just repetition, it’s that different modalities create multiple ways for learners to “connect the dots” of their learning.
