Weekend Ed. Quote ~ August 26

“{Setting} Goals has a directive effect on cognition and behavior, directing attention and effort toward goal- relevant tasks and away from irrelevant activities. Goals also serve an energizing function, which stimulates individuals to exert the effort necessary to match the demands of the task (Schunk, 2001).” ~ Consuelo Cabral-Márquez, in Motivating Readers: Helping Students Set and Attain Personal Reading Goals.

“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~!
