When learners understand their unique strengths and challenges as a learner, there is more engagement and motivation--the barriers to learning can be removed. Universal Design for Learning (UDL) creates such a culture of learner agency and equity. Based on research in the neurosciences and how we learn, UDL and personalization are the perfect match to bring equity and agency to every learner. In this session, you will step into a learner’s shoes and use the UDL Lens of Access, Engage and Express in order to experience firsthand what teachers gain by knowing the strengths and challenges of their learners. We will move between online resources and collaborating with peers so you can identify a Personal Learning Backpack of tools and skills that can support challenged and enhance strengths for your learners to realize agency.  You will depart with a clear understanding how to empower your learners and bring equity to your classroom. Remember your devices!
