Knotebooks: Universal Design for Science
I just stumbled upon Knotebooks as I reviewed my Diigo links from the week. This site is truly constructed around the principles for universal design. Students or teachers can search predesigned content about science topics. (You can also create your own content.) As you read sections, you can ask for easier or harder text as appropriate. You can also replace text with a video at any time. Talk about options! I think this site is a "must see" for science educators in high school. I love the flexibility that is provides to both students and teachers. It's differentiates quickly and easily! Check out the embedded video for more information.
