Digital Differentiation with Digital Choice Boards
Digital Choice Boards are a form of digital differentiation that give students a choice of learning and assessment activities. One easy way to start using digital choice boards is through Tic-Tac-Toe. Students have to complete any three digital activities in a row (vertical, horizontal, or diagonal).
