Supporting Special Education with Book Creator
Students bring different gifts and challenges to the classroom. Book Creator is designed with equity and accessibility in mind, helping you identify and reduce barriers to learning.
Book Creator’s multimodal tools and supports make lessons accessible while building in student voice and choice. With hundreds of accessibility features built into the app, Book Creator is designed to support the three principles of Universal Design for Learning (UDL).
Universal Design for Learning is all about removing barriers during the designing of learning experiences to make sure everyone learns. As educators, we understand that students enter our classrooms each day with a wide range of skills, interests, needs and learning styles. The use of technology can make content and learning resources accessible and support learner variability.
Book Creator provides learners with relevant content, customized options for representing that content and alternative choices for support. Book Creator and the UDL framework address the range of systematic variability presented in every classroom from the onset.
