Finding ways to differentiate instruction for all learners is a daunting task for teachers and administrators.  Incorporating online learning on a regular basis in the classroom is the best and most efficient way to both embrace students’ love of technology and personalize instruction to meet the needs of all learners.  

This interactive workshop will introduce participants to the wide variety of online learning tools that personalize learning for everyone.  These mostly free online learning tools allow teachers to set the pace for instruction, differentiate for both review and enrichment, and encourage students to take ownership of their own learning.  Come discover how you can use these online technology resources on a regular basis in your school to maximize student growth and potential. 

Please bring your computer and your classroom schedule so we can work together to find ways to make online learning happen on a regular basis for you and your students!
