DeepL for UDL ***Promote understanding across languages by using the web translator or desktop apps to translate and edit all kinds of documents. Plus, save time as all fonts, images, and formatting remain in place. A lot of times when teachers create curriculum they do so in a monolingual format failing to take into account the dominant language of some of their learners. This creates an equity divide to access to information. Using an AI translation tool like DeepL promotes understanding of content across all languages.

  • Make all key information in the dominant language (e.g., English) also available in first languages (e.g., Spanish) for learners with limited-English proficiency and in ASL for learners who are deaf
  • Link key vocabulary words to definitions and pronunciations in both dominant and heritage languages
  • Define domain-specific vocabulary (e.g., “map key” in social studies) using both domain-specific and common terms
  • Provide electronic translation tools or links to multilingual glossaries on the web
  • Embed visual, non-linguistic supports for vocabulary clarification (pictures, videos, etc)

ChatGPT and UDL ChatGPT can be used in a variety of ways to facilitate UDL guidelines, from getting students engaged in learning to helping students decode texts. Facilitate managing information and resources. It is important to provide a variety of internal scaffolds and external organizational aids to keep information organized and “in mind.” ChatGPT can help scaffold large amounts of texts by condensing them into bullet points. You can help students organize information by providing graphic organizers with calls to action for organizing information in longer texts by:

  • Providing graphic organizers and templates for data collection and organizing information
  • Embed prompts for categorizing and systematizing.
  • Provide checklists and guides for note-taking.
Representation and the ability to decode texts can be facilitated through ChatGPT, by inputing complex text and simplifying its meaning into either bullet points, or a less complex structure. According to UDLGuidelines.cast.org "To ensure that all learners have equal access to knowledge, at least when the ability to decode is not the focus of instruction, it is important to provide options that reduce the barriers that decoding raises for learners who are unfamiliar or dysfluent with the symbols." ChatGPT can help clarify texts and structures and provide vocabulary support. https://openai.com/blog/chatgpt/ ChatGPT: Optimizing Language Models for DialogueWe've trained a model called ChatGPT which interacts in a conversational way.

Otter.ai and UDL Perception. With Otter.ai you can provide alternatives for auditory information in the form of a transcripts. With otter you can capture all of your important conversations and meetings, whether in-person, hybrid, mobile, or virtual. Otter Assistant integrates with Zoom, Microsoft Teams, and Google Meet while storing all notes in one central, secure, and accessible place. When using otter you are addressing UDL representation: "Sound is a particularly effective way to convey the impact of information, which is why sound design is so important in movies and why the human voice is particularly effective for conveying emotion and significance. (Cast, 2018)." However, relying solely on sound to convey information can create barriers to accessibility for certain learners, including those with hearing impairments, those who require more processing time, or those who struggle with memory. Furthermore, the ability to listen actively is a skill that must be developed.

  • Use text equivalents in the form of captions or automated speech-to-text (voice recognition) for spoken language
  • Provide visual diagrams, charts, notations of music or sound
  • Provide written transcripts for videos or auditory clips

Curipod and UDL Engagement, Comprehension, and Differentiation According to Cast, 2018, "all learners need to be challenged, but not always in the same way. In addition to providing appropriately varied levels and types of demands, learners also need to be provided with the right kinds of resources necessary for successful completion of the task." Offering a variety of challenges and resources enables students to find their most motivating task. It's crucial to maintain a balanced relationship between the resources available and the level of challenge presented. Futhermore, anchoring instruction by linking it to and activating prior relevant knowledge is possible through the Curipod word cloud feature. When information is presented in a way that prepares learners with any necessary background knowledge, it becomes more accessible and easier to understand. By using the word cloud feature teachers can have students draw on their prior knowledge of the lesson's topic and identify and address any knowledge gaps students may need to be successful. Sometimes students may not be able to read or perform on grade level. In order to properly differentiate lessons teachers can use Curipod to generate activities that are on written on their current grade level of understanding. The way quiz questions are written can impact the cognitive load of decoding the questions which can impact an accurate assessment of understanding of content. With Curipod teachers can generate quiz questions on subject matter topics at the current level of student understanding in order to scaffold them to successfully meet the learning objectives and standards. The UDL Engagement Strategies addressed by Curipod:

  • Differentiate the degree of difficulty or complexity within which core activities can be completed
  • Provide alternatives in the permissible tools and scaffolds
  • Vary the degrees of freedom for acceptable performance
The UDL Comprehension Strategies addressed by Curipod:
  • Anchor instruction by linking to and activating relevant prior knowledge (e.g., using visual imagery, concept anchoring, or concept mastery routines)

Murf.ai and UDL Text-to-speech technology addresses several of the Universal Design for Learning (UDL) guidelines. These guidelines aim to provide equal educational opportunities to all learners, regardless of their differences in abilities and needs. UDL Perception refers to designing learning experiences where the students ability Interact with flexible content that doesn't depend on a single sense like sight, hearing, movement, or touch. Example: Providing audio for text. Murf.ai allow teachers and students to generate voice overs from scripts composed of text using AI. Simply create a new project, select a voice over avatar (there are free ones you can use) and generate your voiceover. The biggest downfall of most AI voice generators is that they lack intonation and prosody, or the tone, emotion, and natural rhythm of text. Murf does a good job at allowing you to add an emotion or intonation to your voice over, adjust the speed and pitch, and embed natural pauses to make it more natural sounding. UDL Guidelines related to Murf.ai:

  1. Multiple Means of Representation: Text-to-speech technology provides an alternative way to represent text material, allowing students who struggle with reading to access the same information as their peers.
  2. Multiple Means of Expression: Text-to-speech technology enables students to express themselves through written text, even if they have difficulty writing or typing.
  3. Multiple Means of Engagement: Text-to-speech technology can help students stay engaged in the material by providing an auditory component to the learning experience. This can be especially beneficial for students who are auditory learners or who have trouble focusing on reading for long periods of time.

In conclusion, text-to-speech technology can play a critical role in addressing the UDL guidelines and creating more accessible and inclusive learning environments for all students. https://murf.ai/ AI Voice Generator: Versatile Text to Speech Software | Murf AIFor years, creating good voice overs meant investing hundreds if not thousands of dollars in hiring voice artists, renting a recording studio to get...Murf

Pictory and UDL: Alternatives to Sound The use of sound is a powerful tool to communicate the impact of information, as demonstrated by the importance of sound design in movies and the effectiveness of the human voice in conveying emotion and importance. However, relying solely on sound can create accessibility challenges for learners with disabilities or difficulties in processing or memory. Echoic memory is Additionally, listening is a complex skill that must be developed. To ensure that all learners have access to learning, providing alternatives to sound or auditory options is important. Echoic memory, or phonological short-term memory, is a sensory memory store. It has been observed through various studies that this system can retain a larger amount of information for a longer period of time, averaging around 3-4 seconds, compared to visual memory. However, one of the drawbacks of this type of memory is its lack of permanence, which means that students may not be able to retain the information for long enough to process it. By converting audio to text through captioning, learning is reinforced on a multi-sensory level, aiding in the retention of information Pictory.ai allows teachers to create captions for video content so students can digest information multimodally. It automatically adds captions to your videos, quickly, easily and accurately. UDL Guidelines and Pictory:

  • Use text equivalents in the form of captions or automated speech-to-text (voice recognition) for spoken language
