How Can We Use iPads for Differentiated Learning?

Posted by · Leave a Comment 

HowCanWeUseiPadsforDifferentiatedLearningDifferentiating has become a buzz word in the last few years. Usually educators are asked to differentiate their teaching/instruction in order to meet students’ learning needs.

What if we don’t focus on the teaching aspect for a moment, but focus on the learning? One size worksheet does not fit all. Being on the same task at the same moment or completing the same assignment might not serve all students in an optimal learning environment.

How can we see the iPad as a device that allows students to learn at different times, with different tools/apps to produce evidence of their learning at this moment in time?

  • Give students choices to demonstrate their learning through different media (text, images, audio, video)
  • Students work on building their own digital portfolio
  • Have a strong workflow in place to receive student work and send feedback
  • Give students roles to contribute to the classroom community (official scribe, photographer, videographer, researcher, etc.)
  • Record yourself or a student demonstrating a process, concept or presenting information. Make the recording available to all students to watch, re-watch, rewind at their own speed at their preferred time of day.
