Student Learning Strategies
Strategies for Students with Learning Disabilities (n.d.)
This writing guide, Writing@CSU (Colorado State University, n.d.)
was developed for college teachers to help them address the needs
of students with learning disabilities. The guide focuses on strategies
for improving writing skills, but it also includes tips on approaching
a student about seeking evaluation for a possible learning disability,
and tips for students on organization. Much of the information is
applicable to high school settings.
Universal Design for Learning in a Digital Multimedia Environment
Much of the research on learning in a multimedia digital environment does not focus on the inclusion of students with special needs, either through their participation in research or through accessible designs. However, these studies do reveal how this environment can benefit such students. Universal Design for Learning (UDL) provides a framework for summarizing this research and demonstrating how a digital multimedia environment can increase the accessibility of materials, scaffold students’ exploration of content, and facilitate their engagement. This Web page describes UDL and highlights research on instructional strategies in a digital multimedia environment that exemplifies the principles of UDL.
