Coach teachers in and model design and implementation of technology-enhanced learning experiences using differentiation, including adjusting content, process, product, and learning environment based upon student readiness levels, learning styles, interests, and personal goals
Differentiation is sometimes an overwhelming endeavor. However, it is a daily instructional necessity for teachers. No two students are alike and most classrooms across the country are comprised of students with a wide variety of learning styles and needs. Student choice is often one of the most effective, approachable methods of differentiation, as it encourages student differences, rather than targeting or isolating these differences. My interest in the power of student choice led to my exploration of universal design in my post, Using Universal Design to Differentiate Instruction. The research I did on this topic expanded my knowledge of how flexibility, tolerance, and simplicity can open the doors to learning for all.
