This app is for teachers and parents to search for content specific online teaching resources aligned with Universal Design for Learning. Users can complete a "Class Profile" narrowing the resources by content, grade level and topic. When prompted, questions in the profile tool narrow the search further by asking questions aligned with UDL. In the resources section of the app, teachers can search for lesson plans, multimedia, practice, games, tutorials or by topic and unique search terms. As users navigate the resources, they can save as favorites, share and view on their mobile device. The app also has a section for Universal Design for Learning linking teachers and parents with resources shared directly on the CAST website.
This app was developed as a product of the College and Career Readiness Support Project, a federal ARRA Title-II-D Ed Tech partnership grant, in collaboration with the Maryland State Department of Education.

+ Browse an extensive list of classroom resources, including lesson plans, practices, and web 2.0 tools

What's New in Version 1.1
Updates for version 1.1 include a new content area for school counseling and more ways to share resources -- in addition to email, you can now share on Facebook or Twitter!
Good concept but could be better.
Well organized and a great concept. Many of the links to sites don't work, though. If not for that I would rate 5 stars.
So many udl links on here. Love how you can choose what subject and grade you're looking for. Lots of chemistry I can use. Gahh!! Excited!!
When is this going to be available on the iPad??? Great app
