The present study investigated the effectiveness of the Glogster and cooperative learning as differentiation models of English as a second/foreign language (ESL/EFL) and Science projects. The study employed a mixed method study design whereby questionnaire and openended interview were incorporated to elicit the required data. Eighteen teachers along with eighteen intact classes (n=374) of grade 8 learners of English as a foreign language were randomly assigned to control and experimental conditions. The researchers collected openended data with the intent of understanding the meaning Science and English teachers have constructed and how they perceived differentiated instruction upon using the Glogster and cooperative learning in conducting and presenting projects. The findings proved that utilizing Glogster and cooperative learning as multifeatured model could improve students' English and Science projects and enhance Science and English language teachers' perceptions of differentiated instruction.
