Using Technology to Differentiate Your Classroom

Learn how to use technology to differentiate learning in your classroom through the use of formative feedback and assessment. Prior to meeting, Dr. Dee McGlothlin will survey participants and tailor the session to their needs accordingly. By using technology to formatively assess their students, teachers will quickly know what their students need and will be able to adjust instruction accordingly. Resources to help support teachers in the use of technology will be provided. Dr. McGlothlin serves as an Innovation Specialist and Coordinator of Technology for the ESC. She is also a BIE-certified PBL Facilitator. She can be reached in advance at for specific questions.
