1. IN THE CLASS WEBSITE I HAVE CREATED THERE IS A VARIETY OF ACTIVITIES FOR DIFFERENT LEARNING STYLES
My website helps students understand what is happening in the world of technology and teaches them some useful tech vocabulary through reading, listening, speaking activities, vocabulary, writing, interactive quizzes, study cards, video tutorials and ebooks. Content is relevant and meaningful for students and allows them to apply their learning to real-world problems.
Materials are accessible for all types of learners. Students have many options for reading, including print, digital, text-to-speech and audiobooks. Videos have captions, and there are transcripts for audio.
2. I MAKE ASSIGNMENT RESOURCES AVAILABLE ALL YEAR LONG
Student-paced learning is the ultimate differentiation. Students have access to the lesson plan I publish, video lessons to watch, as well as a list of assignments and interactive quizzes given through Quizlet.
Students work at their own pace through the assignments and lessons, with projects embedded throughout.
I provide opportunities for whole-class, small-group, and individual instruction.
I allow the students who are really far ahead to work self-paced, while I work with the rest of the class
Goals are always clear in my classes, as this helps students know what they’re working to achieve.
I post goals for specific lessons in the classroom and refer to lesson goals during the lesson itself.
3. I ENCOURAGE COLLABORATION WITH FLIPGRID, BACKCHANNEL CHAT and WEB WHITEBOARD
When working in semi-permanent groupings, students use websites that allow multiple students to work in the same document simultaneously like:
so that they can create a collection of work collaboratively over a longer period of time.
