Using Information Communications Technologies (ICT) to Implement Universal Design for Learning (UDL)

The purpose of this paper is to assist Ministries of Education, their donors and partners, and the practitioner community funded by and working with USAID to select, pilot, and as appropriate scale up ICT4E solutions to facilitate the implementation of Universal Design for Learning (UDL), with a particular emphasis on supporting students with disabilities to acquire literacy and numeracy skills.

The paper focuses primarily on how technology can support skills acquisition for students with disabilities, while also explaining when, why, and how technologies that assist students with disabilities can, in some applications, have positive impacts for all students' basic skills development.  ICT to Implement Universal Design for Learning complements the comprehensive UDL Toolkit released in 2018.
