There's No Time to Differentiate: Myth-Busting DI, Part 2 The microwave oven is a great timesaver for getting any food on the table. Yet it's a taste killer. The more I use the grill and oven to cook meals for my family, the more I experience the diversity of tastes that come from grilled or baked salmon, chicken, and burgers, plus sautéed vegetables. A microwave oven dries everything out, and thus limits the tastes. There are days when I get home exhausted with work still to be completed, but I bypass the microwave most times. So why would I not do the same for my students by differentiating based on their needs, instead of using one-size-fits-all methods? Does one-size-fits-all really save time if students haven’t learned? In an earlier post, I looked at a few common differentiated instruction myths. Myth #1 I teach 180 students across five classes. The greater number of students means there is a higher urgency to differentiate. Solution: Put students into small learning teams. Myth #2 My curriculum is so packed. Myth #3 Use Time Wisely

Note: The following trends are based simply on what I’ve seen and heard online and while talking with students.

While Facebook has fallen somewhat out of favor with teens and your typical K-12 students, it doesn’t mean to ignore it. But it is useful . Trend #2: Less About Phone, More About App The next biggest trend I’m seeing is the amount of importance placed on smartphones and tablets . It would seem that students are quite savvy trend-watchers.
