Using Time-Saving Technology to Facilitate Differentiated Instruction
Cook, Nancy
Understanding Our Gifted, v17 n4 p16-19 Sum 2005
To effectively differentiate instruction, a teacher needs to: (1) collect information about students; (2) manage all the data; (3) plan instruction based on the students' readiness level, interests, and/or learning profile; and (4) communicate with students, other teachers, and parents. Formative assessment is a key component of differentiated instruction. In order to meet the needs of students, teachers must find out the interests, learning preferences, and readiness levels of students with regard to the knowledge, skills, and concepts of each unit. Collecting this data in the traditional manner with pencil and paper is time consuming; it is very efficient using technology. This article offers practical strategies for facilitating differentiated instruction. (Contains 2 resources.)
