Larry Ferlazzo: Differentiating Lessons By "Content, Process or Product"

Larry Ferlazzo: Differentiating Lessons By "Content, Process or Product" | Teaching&Learning | Scoop.it

By Larry Ferlazzo: An award-winning English and Social Studies teacher at Luther Burbank High School in Sacramento, Calif., Larry Ferlazzo is the author of Helping Students Motivate Themselves: Practical Answers To Classroom Challenges, The ESL/ELL Teacher's Survival Guide, and Building Parent Engagement In Schools.

David Miles's insight:

I find it challenging to work out how to differentiate (or whether I am differentiating) lessons in secondary school classes where everything is driven by the needs of an examination system. This idea, that there are multiple incarnations of differentiation, I find quite helpful.

Seeking ways to differentiate instruction in your classroom? Look here for quality outsources on a complex topic. Ferlazzo's "power-packed line-up" of guest responders speak to the issue. Additionally you'll find a compilation of Best Resources on the subject.

We Need More EdTech, But Less Technology In The Classroom

We Need More EdTech, But Less Technology In The Classroom | Teaching&Learning | Scoop.it
Technology plays a primary role in my teaching, but I rarely turn on the computer that makes the classroom “smart.” Occasionally, I project the class tweet stream. I am an advocate of Twitter for higher ed.

Via Nik Peachey
David Miles's insight:

Very interesting discussion about the role of technology within teaching. Particularly interesting is the differentiation between what needs to be brought into the classroom and what should stay outside - the idea that if the purpose is merely to transmit knowledge, like a file transfer from one computer to another - then that does not need to be part of classroom activity. I'm going to have to reflect on that one further as I look at what I do in the classroom and what takes place in my school.

Giving Students Feedback With Kaizena (Voice Comments) Tutorial

Published on Sep 10, 2013

Use your voice to give students feedback about their papers in Google Docs. I've only played with this a little bit so far, but I'm really excited to be able to use Kaizena to give my students feedback this year. Being able to add links to resources and reuse those links for other students is so helpful. If you have questions I'm on twitter @JenRoberts1 and the guys who make kaizena are @kaizenaFB if you have feedback for them, or email founders@kaizena.com

The Paperless iPad Classroom with the Google Drive App

The Paperless iPad Classroom with the Google Drive App | Teaching&Learning | Scoop.it

"Have you read The Paperless Classroom with Google Docs by Eric Curts? http://bit.ly/104vztx ; If not, you should. It is a great way for Google schools to harness the power of Google for sharing documents, and establishing a workflow for students to turn in work for teachers to grade and return in a paperless environment. I love it. In fact, I liked it so much that I decided to pay homage to it with a version that is dedicated to doing the very same thing on the iPad using just the Google Drive app.

 

Regular readers will have seen my last post, How to Use Comments on the Google Drive iPad app http://bit.ly/14koJzE . For me, this was a key change to the Google Drive iPad app, and one that had huge implications for the iPad classroom. It inspired me to think about just how much you can do in Google with an iPad and the Drive app, and I soon discovered that you can do a lot more than you might think.

 

So, with the blessing of Eric Curts himself, I sat down and went through all the steps he meticulously outlined for the desktop version of Google Drive, and converted as many as I could to the equivalent actions in the Google Drive iPad app. Then I added some additional steps for other things like taking documents offline, or grading PDFs, images and movies."

ÈIt can be intimidating to try something new in your classroom. This is especially true with technology.

Classroom Climate: This article showed me important details on implementing technology into the classroom. It stressed how to ease into applying technology into the class and how for teachers to teach students the proper way to handle the electronics they get to use. When thinking of project-based learning, there needs to be a strong implementation of technology for students to use for project research and further exploration. Since this generation is so technology driven it is important to teach students how to use technology safely. (ROUTINE)
