Diversified Learners 3-5 Grade
Getting diversified learners in the same classroom who are on different levels provides quite a feat for the classroom teacher to address and use a wide variety of teaching pedagogy. Technology can help us through preparation to help students meet high expectations and do well on a higher level even though they are performing on a lower level. This is where creativity and innovation come into play as educators. We will review apps that will allow for these differences and websites. We will have iPads pre-loaded with Apps for you to preview. bugbrained.com/handouts/ucet.html
