How to Use Technology for Differentiating Classroom Instruction
Dr. Tracey S. Hodges and Dr. Nancy Dubinski Weber
Teachers are aware that technology can be used to differentiate instruction and provide extended learning opportunities to students. They also know that the Common Core State Standards include a scope and sequence for technology. These are excellent incentives for teachers to integrate technology as often as possible. In recent years, technology has grown to include an immeasurable number of tools and resources, and navigating the available resources can be complicated, time-consuming, and sometimes frustrating. This webinar takes some of the guesswork out of finding high-quality, easy-to-use resources. Presenters provide strategies and methods for differentiating your classroom instruction through technology. Additionally, they model several tools you can take into your classroom tomorrow and use with confidence!
