“What if we were willing to suspend the notions that teacher-focused, batch processing is the best we can do in the 21st century for students whose entry points, cultures, interests, languages, and perspectives quite literally span the globe?”
~Carol Ann Tomlinson

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~!
Differentiated instruction (DI) is a hot term these days, but it’s actually been around for a while.
In its simplest form, Differentiated Instruction is a way to reach every child at his or her own level.
The best teachers do this by conversing with their students and listening to their students and observingby being among their students
There are also technology tools that can help, but nothing replaces the empathetic educator.
