How about Tony Buzan and Mindmapping? Note taking and recording using pictures and colour coding! We use this a lot with our Inquiry and Project based learning AND add to that Inspiration software!

Recently listened to Rosenstock on the High Tech High school philosophy in San Diego.  It struck me that their Project Based Learning approach is really the intersection of the Arts with Science.  Creativity meets content...

Band is UDL!

I love the Bach visual representation that Don just profiled.  Here's a great link that demonstrates dance used to present PhD theses!  Dance your PhD.

Hi there - looking forward to sharing ideas around the Arts as a fundamental element in UDL.  My last blog is on this topic.  The Fine Arts are UDL.  Thanks for the kind words Don.  Looking forward to reading your blogs in January.  I'm also interested in hearing about your work with various districts.
