    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.

  • Through online courses, onsite institutes, customized consulting arrangements, and publishing, CAST connects participants from preK-12, higher education, and informal learning environments with UDL experts who understand how to reach learners in the most effective way possible.
