Universal Design: A Teacher's Perspective

Want a fresh, enthusiastic voice . . . a Maine teacher who is passionate about her work, yet grounded in the realities of the classroom? Check out Amanda Leavitt's blog that is called Universal Design: A Teacher's Perspective. You will discover a teacher's thoughts and feelings about bringing in the new while at the same time being cognizant of the value of the traditional.

It is an important topic on which we need to have many more conversations. Amanda is asking essential questions which all too often are not considered.

What is important? When does technology empower and when does it enslave? How do I responsibly make changes in the status quo? What kind of risks am I willing to take?
