Today, most students are technology-savvy having grown up in the computer age surfing the Internet, making friends through social networking, tweeting, playing electronic games, downloading music to their iPods, and viewing or posting videos on YouTube. Research shows that students find school more satisfying and have greater academic success when they are taught in ways that are responsive to their interests, readiness levels, and learning profiles. Participants will learn to incorporate technology tools and resources that engage students in their own learning and to implement strategies for differentiating instruction based on their students learning styles and multiple intelligences. Participants will learn to differentiate instruction in all subjects using traditional technology tools and Web 2.0 tools for collaborating, communicating, and creating multimedia projects. Participants will come away with the skills needed to create technology-driven 21st Century classrooms that address the varying levels of their students learning needs and actively engages students in their own learning.
