  • Fig. 6. “Katie Lalley’s Access Ramp.” Courtesy of SWNS.com. Column 1. Affective Networks—the “why” of learning [the image is a side view of the brain with an area in the middle highlighted.] How learners get engaged and stay motivated. How they are challenged, excited, or interested. These are affective dimensions. Stimulate interest and motivation for learning. Provide Multiple Means of Engagement. Column 2: Strategic Networks—the “how” of learning [the image is a side view of the brain with an area at the front highlighted.] Planning and performing tasks. How we organize and express our ideas. Writing an essay or solving a math problem are strategic tasks. Differentiate the ways students can express what they know. Provide Multiple Means of Action and Expression. Column 3: Recognition Networks—the “what” of learning. [the image is a side view of the brain with a large area at the back and side highlighted.] How we gather facts and categorize what we see, hear, and read. Identifying letters, words, or an author’s style are recognition tasks. Present information and content in different ways. Provide Multiple Means of Representation.
