Thank you to Santa Fe Public Schools

Special thanks to the dedicated and talented teachers at the Santa Fe Public Schools! Thank you for a warm welcome and great participation during my professional staff development session, “Differentiation Instruction with Technology

Have a great and productive fall semester!


“Differentiation Instruction with Technology”

Here is our Agenda for “Differentiation Instruction with Technology” in the Santa Fe Public Schools

Our Essential Questions are:

            1. What is the role of technology as a tool for differentiation?

            2. How can we use educational technology to enhance and
differentiate student learning?


Our GOAL Statement  is to : Create or plan something you can implement in the first ten days of school.

Let’s begin to engage with content, investigate, play, and discuss with each other~!
