Differentiation Does, in Fact, Work

Differentiation Does, in Fact, Work | UDL, mobile learning, and assistive technology | Scoop.it

One of the leading proponents of differentiated instruction, Carol Ann Tomlinson, writes a spirited defense of the teaching practice.


Editor's note: The Commentary "Differentiation Doesn't Work," by James R. Delisle, provoked an avalanche of reader comments. Because of the extraordinary level of interest in the essay, Education Week is publishing this Commentary by one of differentiated instruction's foremost proponents.

 

 

Elizabeth Dalton's insight:

If you are not familiar with Tomlinson's work, or if you are, you should read her response to Delisle's article.  Go Carol!

Speech-to-Text in a Fifth-Grade Classroom * The Yale Center for Dyslexia & Creativity | UDL, mobile learning, and assistive technology | Scoop.it

Last fall, the fifth graders in my class were the lucky recipients of iPads--one for each student. Thrilled and curious, we experimented (as a class and individually) with the different possibilities embedded in the apps and features. There were new ways to practice math facts, explore other countries, consume content, connect with other classrooms, create films and slide shows, animate information and document learning. But all those bells and whistles paled in comparison to the breakthrough that the device offered one of my dyslexic students.
