Differentiated Instruction through Social Media

This class was taught by a specialists, John McCarthy. Here's a webinar on DI that he does for free. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Grd_ozJQE_E

Questions: If you have any questions about differentiating for your students that you would like to ask him, you may contact him by Twitter (@JMcCarthyEdS). His website, Opening Paths (http://openingpaths.org/) is a resource for many on improving student achievement through better pedagogy and instructional practices.

His class that I took on Differentiated Instruction was helpful because he shared about the following:

1. using EdPuzzle, which is a program that let's you upload a video and ask questions during the video to see how the students are understanding what they are watching.

2. using http://www.bgfl.org/virtualdice for reviewing key vocabulary words,

3. using RAFTS to help understand themes in writing,

Here's a picture.

4. A resource page on the different Ways to use social media and how to differentiate in your classroom. This was my most valuable take-away from the class!
