  • My Class Needs Technology to Differentiate Learning

    Launched October 17th, 2017 Project Deadline January 30th, 2018
    Classroom Size 30 Students School Size 1470 Students

    My Students

    I teach Math 9, 11 and 12 this year. Everyone is learning at different pace and have different learning styles. Some are visual learners while others are kinesthetic. In my experience, students benefit from differentiated instructions: teaching with accommodations to adapt to different learning needs and styles. In particular, I found that students enjoy learning math interactively with technology. Technology taps on their interests and make learning concepts more enjoyable.

    How will this project impact them?

    My students will benefit with a touchscreen tablet for learning math concepts, such as the ambiguous case of SSA or trig functions. With the technology, I can differentiate my instructions by grouping similar learners and giving each group a different activity to be completed on the tablets. These activities can range from using interactive applets on Geogebra for kinesthetic learners or math games and videos for visual and auditory learners. This will enhance student learning by accommodating students' learning needs and styles.
