Supporting Math Instruction with Boardmaker Studio
Boardmaker Software Family
The interactive math activities that can be created by the Boardmaker Studio make it possible for all students to have easy access to UDL guided mathematic supports by equipping service providers with easy -to-create activities that can administer varying forms and levels of assessment, customization, and user involvement. Two specific components in the program that enable efficient usability of the program to provide these effective activities are Studio Starter Templates and Gadgets. These components use on-screen and print templates of familiar activity formats and onscreen math manipulative to enable the activities to be easily used in any learning environment. Thus, the characteristics highlighted and explored in this session show how Boardmaker Studio is an effective and efficient assistive technology tool that enables service providers to create UDL guided activities to address the mathematic needs of their diverse learners.
