If you are looking for efficient and effective ways to use differentiated instruction and to incorporate technology in your class, this is a great solution for you!
This is a Power Point template of an INTERACTIVE DIFFERENTIATED instructional unit that can be used for any discipline and grade level as you can fill the editable version with your own content. Yes, PPT can be used for much more than regular presentations. The unit consists of lesson slides with pictures and teacher's voice recordings, training exercises with answer keys, differentiated practice quiz, video instruction, and a page for additional resources.
Starting from the main menu, students can go through the unit at their own pace, go back and review as needed, proceed in the order of their choosing, receive instruction and practice in multiple modes (text, visuals, audio) and obtain immediate feedback in training exercises and practice quiz questions. The differentiated practice quiz is designed to take students to the exact part of the lesson they need to review based on the mistake they made, or allows them to proceed forward faster. A page for additional resources lets educators offer more practice opportunities for struggling students and access to enrichment activities for advanced learners.
This unit format results in highly personalized learning in a class of any size, without it being overwhelming for an educator. In fact, it can free teachers time to assist individual students in class without slowing down the lesson for others. Moreover, the units can be made available online for access outside of the classroom, for make-up work, review, remediation, homebound students, as homework for Flipped Classroom, and to help with increasing parent involvement in their children’s learning.
