The article discusses how technology can enhance the learning environment provided at a modern language classroom. It is stated that to support learning of students with learning disabilities (LD), teachers should use a universal design for learning (UDL) approach for integrating instruction and technology for teaching in their modern language classrooms. It is suggested that various technologies can be used to provide students with LD with equal access to modern language classes, including CD players, use of blogs, use of computer software to help in writing assignments, and use of Webquests for news and cultural trends.
