Welcome to Professor Stein's Class

"The greater danger for most of us lies not in setting our aim too high and falling short; but in setting our aim too low, and achieving our mark."
– Michelangelo Buonarroti

During the course you will be exposed to the concept of Differentiated Instruction. However unlike most courses you will be asked to demonstrate that you use DI by creating your own e-portfolio teaching website. In this course we will teach methods of demonstrating your content knowledge with video, animations, text, lesson plans, student worksheets and more.
Many think this is impossible and are frightened. Hang in there and get assistance from your colleagues in class or in Blackboard discussion board FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions).
You will be asked to create a special NEW touro gmail account (already chosen for you). With this you may be asked to create several other FREE accounts (teachertube.com, youtube,com, picasa.google.com, jingproject.com and others).
IMPORTANT NOTE: While we are here to assist you, there is NO LIMIT to what you can produce with your own creative genious! Do NOT expect that your e-portfolio will be complete or that you can accomplish every task!
How to get an "A" - Be the best in your class by producing a great e-portfolio teaching site. Earn credit for asking and answering questions.
Differentiated Instruction uses multiple learning styles as well as allowing both remediation and open ended expansion for those who complete a task. So too my course will allow both. EXCEL and make me proud! Assist others!
Enjoy Learn and Grow!
Towards the end of the course you will be asked to complete an e-portfolio questionnaire and state which web pages you have created (yes you can add your own as well). DO NOT EXPECT that you will do them all.... The game is afoot!

A word from George Lucas
Use technology to communicate!
Hopefully in his course you ill lean to demonstrate course outcomes, with newly leaned skills including video, animations, audio, graphics and more ... ALl for the world to see on your very own e-portfolio.
Professor Stein
Want a teaching position or a promotion?
Consider using Technology and E-portfolio!
Principals need teachers who:
  • Make the principal look GREAT
  • Have students that are engaged in learning and want to come to school
  • Who are aware that there are state assessments
  • Who assist their students in greatly improving their NYS assessment scores
  • Who use Differentiated Instruction
  • Can use technology and assist staff in using technology
  • Who act and produce at a Professional Level
Remember- You get a position NOT because you think you are great, but rather because you make your future employer think you are great and can fulfill his/her needs.
