The International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) released “Differentiating Instruction with Technology in K-5 Classrooms.” The book, written by Grace E. Smith and Stephanie Throne, explains how to use technology to differentiate instruction by student interest, ability, learning profile, content, process and product.
The content provides a variety of practical instructional strategies to accommodate a broad range of learning styles, abilities and curriculum content. The material includes activities, templates and ready-to-use lessons mapped to curriculum content standards.
A chapter dedicated to applying technology to specific subjects—art, music, physical education and foreign language—is included. The final two chapters focus on using technology to assess student learning and manage the differentiated classroom.
"Differentiating Instruction with Technology in K-5 Classrooms" is priced at $26.55 for ISTE members or $37.95 for non-members. Information about the book, including the table of contents and a free downloadable excerpt is available at www.iste.org/bookstore.
