Differentiating with Tech
There are many digital tools that help teachers create differentiated assignments and give students fair access to curriculum and materials. In this session, we will cover a few of my favorites: using Google Forms to create multiple versions of assignment/tests, using Read and Write for Google or TechHelp to help students access digital materials, and using EdPuzzle to create interactive video lessons.
