Google Docs & Forms to Differentiate
I recently presented at the EdTechTeam GAFE Summit held in my school district, Marlboro Township Public Schools.
It was a great event! I learned valuable new instructional strategies and ways to use emerging instructional technologies. As we approach the start of the school year, I’m sharing and have attached my presentation slideshow on differentiating with Google Docs and Google Forms.
It’s a simple concept in that the teacher can share a Google Doc with a student and set him/her off on an individualized project and learning paths or provide specific links to differentiated content or activities. Additionally, if you’re using adaptive learning programs like Study Island, ST Math, or others, you can link directly to those websites and sign-in pages.
Below is a skills checklist to get yourself started and a link to my slideshow and resources.
