Capstone Project Title
The research question investigated in this project was, how can digital teachers utilize differentiation strategies to best meet the needs of their learners in an online environment? It describes the process of creating a standards based literacy unit which utilizes online resources. This project builds on the work of Tomlinson’s approach to differentiation in a traditional in person classroom setting and the community of inquiry (COI) model of online learning. The unit is differentiated according to student academic level, method of content delivery (synchronous or asynchronous), and student sharing. The document shares how the project was created to meet the needs of fourth grade students. The author discusses the challenge and benefits of collecting and utilizing online and technology based resources that evolve and change over time and the advantages of organizing digital curriculum resources for students and teachers.
