Teachers use Universal Design for Learning (UDL) to engage all students in their classroom by allowing learners to observe and express their understanding of the curriculum in multiple ways. The video below demonstrates the accessibility features built into every NUITEQ Snowflake lesson activity that supports Universal Design for Learning for all students.
NUITEQ Snowflake allows teachers to personalize instruction in multiple ways. In the NUITEQ Snowflake Community, teachers can select lessons that are a higher or lower grade level on the same standards-aligned curriculum to help all students reach their full academic potential. It is easy to add, edit, or remove questions to adjust the complexity of a NUITEQ Snowflake lesson activity and make the manipulatives more accessible to learners.
Students can learn the curriculum using multiple means of representation. NUITEQ Snowflake's engaging lesson activity templates allow teachers to include videos, images, audio, PDFs, and links to instructional content. This can include extensions or scaffolding such as an audio recording or video for pre-readers.
Text, Voice, and Video feedback in NUITEQ Snowflake
Personalized lesson activities can be distributed to the class as open-ended practice or automatically graded assessments. Teachers can review graded assessments and leave feedback in multiple ways. Teachers can personalize feedback through typing, recording a video, or recording audio.
Time-bound activities ensure that there is room for all the curriculum that needs to be covered in a day. NUITEQ Snowflake's colour timer makes it easier for students to know the time remaining at a glance so they can save time for each lesson activity.
Open Dyslexic Font in NUITEQ Snowflake Lesson Activities
Teachers need multiple ways to make the curriculum accessible for early or dyslexic readers. Pictures, Voice recordings, or text can be added to each NUITEQ Snowflake lesson activity manipulative. The font size and the Open Dyslexic typeface can make text manipulatives easier to read. NUITEQ Snowflake's spotlight feature helps students focus on the most important content and the colour overlay feature can help students who struggle to read high-contrast text.
Adding Media in NUITEQ Snowflake
NUITEQ Snowflake gives students multiple ways to express knowledge. For example, the media app allows students to create a collage of text, video, PDFs, and audio. Students build NUITEQ Snowflake lesson activities that summarize what they have learned into a fun learning activity that they can share with the class.
