Vis Wiki: A Component of Universal Design

Richard Byrne shared Vis Wiki on his blog several weeks ago. As I was putting together resources for a workshop on universal design, I "found" it again. I think this site could be very helpful when students are searching for new information or content. Not only does it provide concise articles and embedded videos on the same page, but it also provides related topics in a graphic organizer. This could be very helpful for students who lack either sufficient vocabulary or background knowledge. Check it out!

  1. As an educator, I think this is a great resource! I enjoy, as you said, how the embedded information provides depth to the main topics that are provided through the diagram.

    I think this could also be used as an aid for accomodations for students that need an alternative learning method, especially dealing with organizing information, and finding materials to gain more knowledge on connections between items.
