  5. A1: Strategic student groupings, personalized learning options, tiered/adaptive tech tools. #OK2Ask
  6. Sorry I am just joining in...Karen from Central Virginia #OK2Ask
  7. A1: Consider more than just learning style/modality when differentiating #OK2Ask
  8. A1: continuously assess and adjust content based on need #OK2Ask
  9. A1: Student choice (of product), grouping, centers and flexible classroom options #OK2Ask
  10. Q2: Comment on this quote: “Differentiation is an idea that is as old as effective teaching. Catering to each child’s needs and abilities is second nature to good educators no need for a label”. #OK2Ask https://t.co/SLQVVbsrxU

  11. A2: Yes! Educators should work to give students what they need, when they need it. They learn in different ways, at different rates. #OK2Ask
  12. Better late than never...Ruth in Herndon VA just joining #OK2Ask -- Keeping an eye out for @TLBrocken
  13. a1. allowing for options, giving choices, meeting the Ss where they are #OK2Ask
  14. A1: Differentiation is a little different for #etcoaches - I like to differentiate online sessions using #edmodo #OK2Ask
  15. a2. love this quote! No Ss needs/requires a label, all unique individuals! #OK2Ask
  16. A2: Well, I agree that it is good instruction. As with all complex concepts, we need to name it and break it down into its components so we can work all the angles. #OK2Ask
  17. Q3: Now, how about this quote? Thoughts? “It is impossible for teachers to meet the needs of ALL their students. Never mind in a single lesson!” We need to pop the differentiation bubble”. #OK2Ask https://t.co/CSTynnFw2i

  18. A very important way I differentiate is in addressing needs beyond academic. Get to know what each kid needs emotionally and respond accordingly. #OK2Ask
  19. A3: Yes, it’s a challenge, but we must keep trying. Education should be equitable, not equal. #OK2Ask
  20. Thank you, @Katy_Garvey! I am super excited. Lots of choice and differentiation in that project and unit for sure! #OK2Ask
  21. A2: I agree it has been around for a long time, but I don't think it's necessarily intuitive. Lots of beginning teachers need help understanding both the concept and execution. #OK2Ask
  22. A3: Sounds like this person wants an excuse -- sure it’s tough but we need to set the bar high #OK2Ask
  23. I agree-- there are so many facets to differentiation... as Karen said-- lots of angles to work. #OK2Ask  https://twitter.com/moreruckus2/status/938940385191186432 
  24. a3. difficult...yes, impossible...no! Every Ss should receive a differentiated instruction, Ts need to be patient, creative, supportive and sharing! #OK2Ask
  25. Q4: How could you incorporate differentiation into station work/station rotations?  #OK2Ask https://t.co/zXnhtG3RqD
    Q4: How could you incorporate differentiation into station work/station rotations? #OK2Ask pic.twitter.com/zXnhtG3RqD
  26. A3: Differentiation is good for all students but imperative for some - start somewhere...how about plan to the toughest to reach students first..much for them will benefit all. #OK2Ask
  27. A4: Provide a scaffolded approach to the tasks. I’ve seen great lessons with “must dos” and “may dos” built in. #OK2Ask
  28. A4: I like to break things into groups. Each station could have similar but differentiated materials for each group. #OK2Ask
  29. A3. Tiered approach to activities at each station. Students know which tier that they are on. They can go up, can’t go down. Creates a self-advocacy of students pushing themselves while mastering the content. They will challenge themselves once they see the value. #OK2Ask
  30. Q5: What are your favorite tech tools to use for differentiating either content, product, or process? Which does the tool address and why do you like it? #OK2Ask https://t.co/AIaYDBDznN

  31. A5: IXL is a tool that math teachers really like because it is adaptive and gives teachers informative reports/data. #OK2Ask
  32. A5. Currently using @DreamBox_Learn for k-8 Math, @LexiaLearning for k-5 reading. ALEKS for Alg1& geometry. Effective and useful data that guides instruction, interventions, and differentiated lessons. #OK2Ask
  33. Q6: How do you incorporate student voice and choice into your lessons? #OK2Ask https://t.co/SVC24RiyF5

  34. a5. I love utilizing google classroom for differentiation, can provide different options for students to complete an assignment #OK2Ask
  35. A5: Oh, yea...if you haven’t tried it yet, you need to check out Rewordify #OK2Ask
  36. A6: It could be through menu boards, station rotation, peer teaching. #OK2Ask
  37. @Katy_Garvey Piloting it now. Teachers are liking it! A few years ago when I was a middle school prin, my Alg1 teachers loved it! #OK2Ask
  38. A5: I would be remiss if I did not include OneNote for differentiation -- it is so simple to send materials to individuals or groups AND it allows for Ss to access the material based on their learning style #OK2Ask
  39. Q7: How does scaffolding fit into the idea of differentiating instruction? #OK2Ask https://t.co/xLRpRlea4J

  40. #OK2Ask A4: I think a checklist to allow for self-pacing or differentiating the readings and questions are ways to apply diff to stations
  41. A7: Adapt strategies to each student’s learning process. As students become more comfortable with the material, they should be able to learn independently, allowing the scaffolding to be phased out. #OK2Ask
  42. #OK2ASK I like shared Slides and Docs, Padlet, Flipgrid for differentiation of content and process. Especially in communicating ideas and honing craft of writing. Share out, learn from others, revise as needed
  43. A7- in our schools, scaffolding is inevitable. It allows for students to have the flexibility in their learning and can guide their pacing while giving opportunity to go beyond comfort - this can all happen with a strong teacher and growth mindset mentality. #OK2Ask  https://twitter.com/sflok2ask/status/938944970890788864 
  44. Q8: Do you use menu or choice boards? How can you leverage these to meet various student needs? #OK2Ask https://t.co/QgSZmlFgZf

  45. That is a great idea! You could even do this digitally with a tech tool. #OK2Ask Do you know of a good one @KSchmalz407 ?  https://twitter.com/KSchmalz407/status/938945182560645120 
  46. A8: Incorporate activities that cater to various learning styles within the menu. Auditory, verbal, written, artistic, etc. Think outside the box. #OK2Ask
  47. I have not used it yet, but I have GoogleKeep possibly for this? But I will say, sometime old-fashioned pen and paper makes for a good checklist. My kids just told me today they were grateful for the one they are using now to self pace AW #OK2Ask
  48. A8 I used choice boards with 9 squares like tic tac toe. The Ss had to get three in a line. Each row offered a different approach and each column a different product. #OK2Ask
  49. I have always wondered if Voxer is another way for kids to communicate self-paced learning progress in an ongoing way through a project #OK2Ask
  50. A9: They should be incorporated into any lesson to ensure student mastery. The assumption should be that students will reach mastery at different rates and in different ways. #OK2Ask
  51. Q7: scaffolding is huge - know who can move ahead on their own and who needs prompts to access the skill or content - 1:1 T-S as much as possible #OK2Ask
  52. @SFLOK2Ask A3: bubble doesn't need popping. The goal is to meet the students needs everyday. As with all goals it is desire to reach the goal that makes it possible #OK2Ask
  53. A10: I would love to learn about more free tech tools to help educators differentiate instruction. #OK2Ask
