• OSDE Teacher Resources



    OAAP Distant Learning Resources have been compiled to help teachers succeed in serving students who participate in the Oklahoma Alternate Assessment Program (OAAP). Many of the resources provided, such as Dynamic Learning Maps' Familiar Texts, are designed for students with the most significant cognitive disabilities. The resources listed are not comprehensive, and more resources can be added.



    Universal Design for Learning

    Universal Design for Learning (UDL) is a framework that guides the design of learning experiences to meet the needs of all learners proactively. When UDL is utilized, an assumption is made that barriers to learning are in the design of the environment, not in the student. UDL is based on brain science and evidence-based educational practices. It also leverages the power of digital technology.

    Review these UDL tips for addressing specific aspects of UDL in the design of learning environments (learning goals, assessment, and more).

    • UDL Exchange (UDL Exchange) allows educators to create, mix, and share instructional resources, including lesson plans, based on UDL and aligned to standards.

    • UDL Studio (UDL Studio) allows educators to make universally designed educational materials with levels of learning support

    • UDL Book Builder (UDL Book Builder) enables PreK-12 educators to develop their digital books to support reading instruction literacy learning.
