Meeting the needs of individual students while providing them with quality instruction is a challenge for every teacher. This presentation focuses on incorporating some of the principles of differentiated instruction within the classroom while using the existing school curriculum (or making minor adjustments to it).


Edmodo


What is Edmodo?

Edmodo can best be described as, "a social learning network for teachers, students, and parents." Edmodo looks and operates similarly to Facebook, which is a very appealing feature for many students. Teachers can post homework assignments on Edmodo for students to complete, and students may later submit their assignments through the site. After each student's assignment is viewed by the teacher, a grade can be posted. A group for each class can be created, and teachers can easily add students to each group. The flexibility is there to even create sub-groups for further differentiation.
