Differentiated Instruction Using Tackk
DIFFERENTIATING FOR CONTENT
Depending on the task, learning materials can be differentiated based on student readiness, interest/ preferences, learning styles and intelligences. One example of differentiating for content based on student interest is to give students options, dividing them into groups to work on one area of what is being learned in class, which they can afterwards present to others in the class.
DIFFERENTIATING FOR PROCESS
Differentiating for process involves changing or providing options for the ways of learning. For example using Tackk, students are learning through exploration of a variety of different methods. For example, students are able to view and add videos, songs, text, links to articles and whatever else they find to be useful for their topic.
DIFFERENTIATING FOR PRODUCT
Here students have the option on how to present their product. With Tackk, there are multiple choices of presentation and students can include pictures, songs, videos, even maps depending on the subject.
DIFFERENTIATING THE LEARNING ENVIRONMENT
Imagine students in your class using Tackk. Using ICT such as Tackk transforms the learning environment. It becomes more student lead because they are doing their own research and coming up with their own products. They are also able to comment on other student's Tackk presentations providing an important opportunity for collaboration.
