These are my notes from the “Amp Up Differentiated Instruction Digitally” session at the 2016 FETC conference.
- Technological, pedagogical, and content knowledge.
- Overlapping from three areas of knowledge that teachers need to use technology effectively.
- Not all students from other languages have a paradigm for written language.
- Text-dependent skills and strategies, such as using text structures.
- Students can post messages to the screen, similar to functionality within Nearpod.
- Appears to have very limited functionality. Users can’t reply to each other.
- The teacher can create rooms for discussion.
- She demonstrated an ebook with voiceover that highlighted the words as they were read aloud.
- ebooks can be modified for specific needs.
- Filters for product type (ebook, eposter, ), language (Englis or Spanish), and subject area.
- Readings can be narrowed by lexile level.
- Teachers of Students of Other Languages
- English Language Development (ELD) Standard
- Ed Puzzle – used to trim a YouTube video.
- Read Works – lessons written around books often used in LA classes, organized by skills. Also has readings that can be downloaded.
- No Red Ink – tutorials to help students with grammar.
- Common Lit – reading units created around essential questions. Readings are all marked with lexile level.
