Use Audio & Video to Engage Students and Promote UDL

According to the 2017 Project Tomorrow Digital Learning Report, 68% of teachers report that they are able to more effectively differentiate instruction with the use of technology. How can we do this with the classroom technology available today? How can we promote Universal Design for Learning in our classrooms? We'll explore the range of tools - both websites and apps - that are available to provide multiple means of engagement, representation and action / expression. Whether we are using these tools to share content or to amplify student voices, there is no denying that students are engaged by audio and video.
