What is student agency? Student agency relates to students having an active role in their learning through voice and choice, in the process. When students have agency in their learning, the student is making, creating doing, sharing, and collaborating in ways that are meaningful to them. Expert learning as seen through a Universal Design for Learning lens are students that practice agency. They are purposeful and motivated, resourceful and knowledgeable, and strategic and goal-directed. Technology, both assistive technology and universal support technology can scaffold students as they plan, monitor, and reflect on their learning.

This session will discuss how assistive and universal technology in the classroom can help enhance students’ engagement, efficacy, and strategic action. We will explore key approaches when introducing universal support tools and assistive technology that promote student agency and develop expert learners. You will leave the session with the knowledge to take action steps and create a roadmap to begin.
