  • Science Notebook tool screenshots

    2015–2020

    Science Notebook in a Universal Design for Learning Environment (SNUDLE) is a digital solution to support the active science learning of elementary school students, including those who have difficulty reading and writing or are otherwise unmotivated for science learning. UDL is leveraged as the design framework so that construct-irrelevant barriers to science learning are actively lowered through the provision of support, and just-in-time scaffolding is provided to support the process of active science learning and, specifically, the effective use of science notebooks. This current Goal 3 project is a replication study that builds on the positive outcomes from a prior efficacy trial.

    2016

    This EdTech Design Challenge and Incubator project gives high school youth the opportunity to immerse themselves in design thinking, cutting-edge technology and the innovation economy, allowing them to discover new talents and interests beyond the narrow confines and literacies valued in school.

  • Screen shot of Writer's Key online tool for teaching composition writing

    2011–2014

    Researchers from CAST and Arizona State University developed and tested Writer’s Key, a web-based tool that guides and supports middle-school students in writing argumentative (persuasive) and informational (expository) compositions. The research team based the design of Writer's Key on the framework of Universal Design for Learning. In addition to scaffolding users in the writing process, Writer's Key also provides supports for users such as multiple models, skill development activities, interactive work spaces, guided questions, and a breakdown of writing by process components in a flexible work space. Additionally, built-in peer to peer and teacher to student feedback support the writing process.
