UDL Principle 3: tap into learners' interests, offer appropriate challenges, and increase motivation

Kurzweil 3000 is content-independent and can therefore be used across curriculum areas. It is vital for students to be able to independently access age-appropriate content so that they can develop the vocabulary and background knowledge needed to fully participate in class, complete assignments, advance their academic skills, and protect their self-esteem.

When students can manage tasks that once were arduous, tiring, or extremely time consuming, they develop a more positive attitude toward their work, gain independence, and get the maximum benefit for their efforts.

The success they experience using Kurzweil 3000 can help increase motivation and encourage lifelong learning.
