Some might call these 'hidden features' but I prefer to think of them as simply undiscovered. Perhaps you have a favorite 'undiscovered feature you found or use on your iPhone - if so, why not share?

What Differentiated Instruction Is--And Is Not: The Definition Of Differentiated Instruction - Te@chThought | idevices for special needs | Scoop.it

"We’re not sure it is a matter of fact how personalized learning, personal learning, and differentiated instructioncompare, but we tend to think of differentiated instruction as the process of optimizing the packaging of academic content for individual students, while the former “personalized” and “personal” learning can also involve the changing of the content itself. That is, this student needs to learn this content, while differentiation is a matter of tailoring teaching for each students to reach the same content.'

Your essential guide to YouTube playlists - Daily Genius

Your essential guide to YouTube playlists - Daily Genius | idevices for special needs | Scoop.it

"YouTube has been around for quite a long time. You’d think that, by now, we’d have got the hang of it.

 

Yet most of us are pretty passive users – watching videos when they’re emailed to us or we spot them on social media. We see a link, click and sit back. Hardly any of use use the playlist facility, for example.

 

Those of you who use YouTube to host your own video, and channels, really ought to get with the programme on this one. Playlists allow you to organise you users’ viewing – you can place videos in a logical order so that things make sense. And the videos auto play, so that your viewers will follow the programming you’ve given them, and watch for longer – and it’s that viewing time that seriously helps in the optimisation (fundability) of videos on YouTube."

"Reading Rockets shares that "A concept map is a visual organizer that can enrich students' understanding of a new concept. Using a graphic organizer, students think about the concept in several ways. Most concept map organizers engage students in answering questions such as, "What is it? What is it like? What are some examples?" Concept maps deepen understanding and comprehension."Cast reports: "There is solid evidence for the effectiveness of graphic organizers in facilitating learning." A summary of this finding is that, "When looking across 23 different studies they found a consistent effect on comprehension."
