Technology as a tool for differentiation in the classroom
The research question addressed is how technology can be a tool for differentiation in the classroom. The motivating factor for this capstone was the need our students and teachers have for bridging the gap between differentiation, technology, and the classroom instruction. This capstone details instructional strategies for integrating technology and differentiation into math and reading curriculum areas as well as the importance of integrated curriculum for our 21st century learners. Students at this elementary school come from a highly diverse background, limiting their resources to technology outside of the school day, therefore raising the importance of integrating it into their learning to offer them the same equitable experiences as other students throughout our district. Key influence for this capstone was the text, Differentiating Instruction with Technology in K-5 Classrooms by Grace Smith and Stephanie Throne.
