Differentiated Instruction (CAST) - 0 views

  •  
    Not all students are alike. Based on this knowledge, differentiated instruction applies an approach to teaching and learning so that students have multiple options for taking in information and making sense of ideas. The model of differentiated instruction requires teachers to be flexible in their approach to teaching and adjusting the curriculum and presentation of information to learners rather than expecting students to modify themselves for the curriculum. Classroom teaching is a blend of whole-class, group and individual instruction. Differentiated Instruction is a teaching theory based on the premise that instructional approaches should vary and be adapted in relation to individual and diverse students in classrooms.

Effects of Technology on Classrooms and Students - 0 views

  • Students clearly take pride in being able to use the same computer-based tools employed by professionals. As one teacher expressed it, "Students gain a sense of empowerment from learning to control the computer and to use it in ways they associate with the real world." Technology is valued within our culture. It is something that costs money and that bestows the power to add value. By giving students technology tools, we are implicitly giving weight to their school activities. Students are very sensitive to this message that they, and their work, are important.

      Many of my disadvantaged students respond the most positively to using the computer activities. This could be because they see technology as valuable.
  • When students are using technology as a tool or a support for communicating with others, they are in an active role rather than the passive role of recipient of information transmitted by a teacher, textbook, or broadcast. The student is actively making choices about how to generate, obtain, manipulate, or display information.

      This makes the learning much more interesting for each student. It makes the learning a very personal experience even though all the students are doing similar tasks at their computers. Some teachers think a computer activity is impersonal but my experience shows the opposite.

    Great resource for applying Bloom's taxonomy to the use of educational technology
  •  
    This is an update to Bloom's revised taxonomy to account for the new behaviours emerging as technology advances and becomes more ubiquitous. Bloom's revised taxonomy accounts for many of the traditional classroom practices, behaviours and actions but does not account for the new processes and actions associated with web 2.0 technologies and increasing ubiquitous computing.
