Best Practices Using Technology to Support Differentiated Instruction
Welcome, the purpose of this site is to provice a series of best practices by teachers at
Nashoba Regional High School as part of a professional develop showcase that will
take place during at the end of the school year.
Teachers at Nashoba have recently implemented several new technologies that
connect their classrooms and support differentiated instruction. As part of an
Intel grant teachers are using Tablet/PC's with wireless projectors in the classroom.
Nashoba was recognized by Microsoft as the April 2006 Showcase School of the
month for our SharePoint implementation and as an Innovative Teacher
Team last fall.
We hope by video taping and showcasing our classrooms we share our best
practices focusing on technology integration.

The Connected Classroom
This video was created as an introduction for a presentation at PETE&C. The session was designed to show teachers how to connect their classrooms to the world of information. Visit http://theconnectedclassroom.wikispaces.com/ to participate in the conversation or add your ideas
Not all students are alike. Based on this knowledge, differentiated instruction
applies an approach to teaching and learning so that students have multiple
options for taking in information and making sense of ideas. The model of
differentiated instruction requires teachers to be flexible in their approach to
teaching and adjusting the curriculum and presentation of information to learners
rather than expecting students to modify themselves for the curriculum. Classroom
teaching is a blend of whole-class, group and individual instruction.
Differentiated Instruction is a teaching theory based on the premise that
instructional approaches should vary and be adapted in relation to individual
and diverse students in classrooms.
