Supporting Differentiated Instruction
Equity doesn’t mean that every student should receive the same instruction, instead, it demands that reasonable and appropriate accommodations be made as needed to promote access and attainment for all students.”  The purpose of differentiating instruction is to engage students in instruction and learning in the classroom. - www.TeachnKidsLearn.com

Using Technology to Differentiate Instruction

Using Technology to Differentiate Instruction | Supporting Differentiated Instruction | Scoop.it

One of the major benefits of using technology in the classroom is the ability to differentiate instruction to meet the needs of every student in every lesson. Just as every student grows and develops at different rates, they learn in different ways and at different speeds. Technology makes it possible to pace lessons appropriately for each student’s learning level and can be used to promote learning in the multiple intelligences.

Understanding the History and Pervasive Myths Around Autism | MindShift | KQED News

Understanding the History and Pervasive Myths Around Autism | MindShift | KQED News | Supporting Differentiated Instruction | Scoop.it

In 1938, an Austrian pediatrician named Hans Asperger gave the first public talk on autism in history. Asperger was speaking to an audience of Nazis, and he feared that his patients — children who fell onto what we now call the autism spectrum — were in danger of being sent to Nazi extermination camps.

 

As Asperger spoke, he highlighted his “most promising” patients, a notion that would stick with the autistic spectrum for decades to come.

“That is where the idea of so-called high-functioning versus low-functioning autistic people comes from really — it comes from

Smartphones in the classroom: a teacher's dream or nightmare? - CBC

Smartphones in the classroom: a teacher's dream or nightmare?   - CBC | Supporting Differentiated Instruction | Scoop.it
When students return to class this fall, a majority of them will be toting something that teachers themselves are still learning to deal with: a mobile device.

Whether it's a smartphone, tablet or laptop, survey after survey shows more and more — and younger and younger — schoolchildren have their own computing devices and are taking them to class.

A report last year found that just among Grade 4 students, 25 per cent had a cellphone; for high school students, close to 90 per cent have smartphones.

The final quote of this interesting article makes an excellent conclusion: "The most successful teachers are very intentional about how they use the technology, and when they're not using the technology, it's not in front of the kids."

Smarta mobiler i klassrummet: lärarens dröm eller mardröm??

Detta kan jämföras med att ca 86 % av eleverna i åldern 9-12 har egen mobil i Sverige och av dem är 78 % smarta mobiler.

I suspect that every teacher has seen major change over the last few years. This post provides a look at changes that have happened, or are in the process. The first seven provide the change and a look at the old, the new, the difference and a short summary. One example from the post is quoted below.

Personalization

The Old: Administer assessment, evaluate performance, report performance, then–maybe–make crude adjustments the best you can

The New: Identifying, prioritizing, and evaluating data for each student individually–in real time

The Difference: Precision
