Description

This is a presentation on differentiated instruction and some technologies to support it. I highlight the theory and practice behind D.I., some technology to enhance the D.I. experience, and some practical D.I. strategies to design instruction around the notion of each learner learns differently.

Differentiated Instruction and Some Technology to Support it Technology’s Influence on Differentiated Instruction

No fear! Technology just becomes a tool for them.

And we’re still trying to figure it out.

I was hoping…

How true is this?

Think about this… The Web (the Internet) recently welcomed its 1 billionth user That user is most likely an 8 year-old kid from… United States? England? Japan? None of the above…most likely from countries that we refer to as evolving or “3 rd World” He or she is now connected to the sum of human knowledge we are building online Soon…he or she will be an author creating content and sharing content online

The Web (the Internet) recently welcomed its 1 billionth user

That user is most likely an 8 year-old kid from…

United States?

England?

Japan?

None of the above…most likely from countries that we refer to as evolving or “3 rd World”

He or she is now connected to the sum of human knowledge we are building online

Soon…he or she will be an author creating content and sharing content online

More to think about… 1 out of every 8 couples married in the U.S. last year met online. There are over 100 million registered users of MySpace. The average MySpace page is visited 30 times a day. The number of text messages sent and received every day exceeds the population of the planet. It’s estimated that 1.5 exabytes (that’s 1.5 x 1018) of unique new information will be generated worldwide this year.

Summary Statements About Learning People learn what is personally meaningful to them. People learn when they accept challenging but achievable goals. Learning is developmental . Individuals learn differently . People construct new knowledge by building on their current knowledge . Much learning occurs through social interaction . People need feedback to learn. Successful learning involves use of strategies- -which themselves are learned. A positive emotional climate strengthens learning. Learning is influenced by the total environment .

Teacher users vs. Student users How do you [adult/teacher] use the Internet? How do they [child/student] use the Internet?

Gunter, G. A. (2004). Video in the classroom: learning objects or objects of learning?. Association for Educational Communications and Technology , 27, 7. The youth of today are inundated with [digital content] that has the potential to extend literacy and allow them to actively participate with a variety of media.

Example - Read news differently? Web 2.0 stuff! Today’s Web 2.0 user doesn’t go to the news…he/she has it come to him/her!

 

Fits beautifully into differentiated instruction because it provides options!

Web 2.0 , a phrase coined by Al Gore in 2004, refers to a perceived or proposed second generation of Internet-based services—such as social networking sites, wikis , communication tools, and folksonomies — that emphasize online collaboration and sharing among users.

It’s also called the read/write Web.

What Web 2.0 hints at is… An improved World Wide Web Not just information warehouse People contribute and create Communication and collaboration Students can become… Publishers – wikis DJs - podcasting Experts – wikis or blogs Broadcasters - podcasts Editors – blogs, wikis, Networked (socially) – MySpace like tools Content reviewers – wikipedia…sharing and developing Syndicated – RSS content out to everywhere!

Easily create simple Web sites - instead of asking students (or groups of students) to create Web-based content on Web sites, have them post the content into wikis. They're much less focused on the technical aspects of creating Web sites and much more focused on creating/developing content...which is seriously what we assess kids on anyway.

Project development with peer review - the collaborative nature of wikis allow kids to work together. There's novel concept...students working together and collaborating. Check it out! I also saw this wiki somewhere along the way. It's a collaborative writing project...check out the use of the wiki when interpreting Keats' An Ode to Grecian Urn . Students add their commentary or interpretation on lines within the text...awesome!

Group authoring - One of the coolest things sites is http:// wikibooks.org / . It's a collaborative initiative to create books. Check it out! Imagine creating our own textbooks that meet the needs of our own students...now that's innovative! Track a group project - the nature of the wiki is that it's collaborative. What's even better is that you can track the collaborative changes that are made! Follow a document as it is edited...track the changes and communicate with the team members. There is even a discussion board piece to them that allows for the team members to actually talk about it! So nice!

Data Collection The wiki best suited for this right now is JotSpot ( http:// www.jot.com / ), which has a data collection tool you can install with just a few clicks. It's recently been acquired by Google so bear with it as it is migrated over to Google.

Review classes & teachers - just imagine the ability to use wikis as review assignments, remediation, enrichment...the list goes on! Presentations - wikis could be the next level of presentation! Use it as a guide for visitors to move through your content.

When a teacher tries to teach something to the entire class at the same time, chances are one-third of the kids already know it; one-third will get it; and the remaining third won’t. So two-thirds of the children are wasting their time. Lillian Katz

Equalizer Troubleshooting Tips: All students need lessons that are rich and engaging. Try not to make drill and practice as the staple of students’ school “diets.” Your students’ sense of “self-efficacy” comes from recognizing their power AFTER accomplishing something they first thought was just “too big” for them. Design lessons that stretch all students beyond…. A task is challenging for a given student when it causes that student to stand on “mental tip toes” and reach high to complete it well.

“ This is Boring!” These words do not bring happiness to the hearts of teachers. Boring “A” “ I already know that; could you give me an opportunity to show you?” Boring “B” “ At the present time I do not know enough about the topic to be interested in it.” 2 kinds of bored

Differentiated by readiness… Pre-assessment : survey of technical readiness (multimedia, desktop publishing and Web page creation) After reading a novel, students were presented with the following situation: You are the publicist for the new paperback version of the novel. Your task is to create an advertisement that is both informative and persuasive. Advertisements can take many forms. The teacher assigns one of the following forms for presenting the advertisement: Group A – story board for a TV ad using PowerPoint Group B – informational flyer for distribution at book stores, using desktop publishing program (Print Shop, MS Word, Publisher) Group C – Web page promoting the novel

Using a 4x6 index card the student writes YES on one side and NO on the other. When a question is asked the students hold up YES or NO. Ask the students if they know the following vocabulary words and what they mean. Call out a word. If a student is holding a YES they may be called on to give the correct answer. Remind them that if they don’t know the words it is OK because they will be learning them. You can do the same thing with conceptual ideas, etc. Yes/No Cards Gregory, G.H. & Chapman, C. (2001).

Essential Skills for Differentiated Instruction Effective Management Strategies Thorough Knowledge of the Curriculum Consistent Use of High Leverage Instructional Strategies Know Your Students Thoroughly

10 Strategies for Managing a Differentiated Classroom Have a strong rationale for differentiating instruction based on student readiness, interest and learning profile. Begin differentiating at a pace that is comfortable for you. Tine differentiated activities for student success. Use an “anchor activity” to free you up to focus your attention on your students. Create and deliver instructions carefully.

Giving Directions If the whole class is doing the same activity then give the directions to the whole group. Do not give multiple task directions to the whole class. For small group work, tape directions so students can listen to them repeatedly Use task cards to give directions to small groups. A general rule is that once the teacher has given directions the students can’t interrupt while he/she is working with a small group “ Ask 3 Before Me”
