Many teachers feel overwhelmed by the thought of providing unique learning plans for all their students. Fortunately, there are several ways that technology can support differentiation and even replace your textbook.
No personalized learning platform will offer everything you need, nor can you be 100% sure that a platform will deliver results, until you use it in your own school. Ask yourself these questions before committing to any personalized learning platform.
Too often, as educators, we focus on either the beginning or the end of the learning journey. To better meet students’ needs, we need to view curriculum as a bridge between the two points. This involves differentiation by content, process, and product.
The gap between what we “teach” students and what they “learn” should be familiar to any classroom teacher. Good assessment shows us what students understand and retain; the importance of data can not be discounted.
