  21. 21. Session Outcomes• Reframe and refocus your thinking about learning and blended learning – What outcomes do we want for students? – How are these goals best achieved? – How can true differentiation become a reality without burdening teachers’ time?• Learn how software can effectively unify: – Curriculum design – Learning theory – Student engagement
  22. 22. Differentiation Defined• Teachers have a responsibility to ensure that all of their students master important content.• Teachers have to make specific and continually evolving plans to connect each learner with key content.• Differences profoundly impact how students learn and the nature of scaffolding they will need at various points in the learning process.• Teachers should continually ask, “What does this student need at this moment in order to be able to progress with this key content, and what do I need to do to make that happen?” Leading and Managing a Differentiated Classroom by C.A.

  26. 26. Plan Schooling Backwards• “Contemporary school reform efforts… typically focus too much on various means: • structures, • schedules, • programs, • PD, • curriculum, • and instructional practices (like cooperative learning).”• Or blended learning. p. 234-235, Wiggins & McTighe, © 2007
  27. 27. Plan Schooling Backwards• Certainly such reforms serve as the fuel for the school improvement engine, but they must not be mistaken as the destination…[which is] improved learning.” p. 234-235, Wiggins & McTighe, © 2007
  28. 28. Before Blending1. What do you want students to accomplish? 2. How will you know they’ve achieved it? 3. What technology will you need for their learning?

  33. 33. Learning Principles• “An understanding is a learner realization about the power of an idea.”• “Understandings cannot be given; they have to be engineered so that learners see for themselves the power of an idea for making sense of things.”• “The goal of all learning is fluent and flexible transfer – powerful use of knowledge, in a variety of contexts.” p. 113, Schooling by Design, Wiggins & McTighe, ©2007
