Proposal summary

Purpose & objective

Teachers are constantly seeking to engage their learners, student motivation increases when they have more choice in how they learn, more choice in what they learn, and more choice on who they can learn with.
Participants will uncover the benefits, standards-based design, differentiation techniques, and explore digital activities that cater to many learning styles, such as visual, auditory, read-write, verbal, and kinesthetic.
Tailoring tasks to learners helps to give students agency when they are offered a chance to choose from a menu of options. The underpinnings of standards, technological interventions, and level of academic difficulty, can be appropriately differentiated for the various groups of learners in your class.
Participants will have access to successful models that can be easily adapted to fit their own curriculums and grade bands.
