Book Title: Differentiating Instruction with Technology in K-5 Classrooms
Publisher: International Society for Technology in Education
Author: Grace Smith
Harness the 'power of two': Differentiated instruction plus technology equals a better learning environment for diverse students.
Differentiating Instruction with Technology in K-5 Classrooms helps today's educators understand how to immediately use technology as a tool to differentiate instruction. The authors provide a variety of practical instructional strategies to accommodate a broad range of learning styles, abilities, and curriculum content. Creative, ready-to-use lessons mapped to curriculum content standards, activities, and templates allow teachers to kick-start their use of technology in differentiating instruction.
Learn how to use technology to differentiate by student interest, readiness, ability, learning profile, content, process, and product. A chapter dedicated to applying technology to specific subjects--art, music, physical education, and foreign language--rounds out the instruction-specific content. The final two chapters focus on using technology to assess student learning and manage the differentiated classroom.
