ThingLink Live & On Demand

Many years ago I began building a digital toolkit of resources for using technology as a tool for differentiated learning. Fortunately, that was also the time I was exploring the powerful possibilities of using ThingLink as a tool for teaching and learning. My toolkit quickly grew into a powerful interactive model that has remained current and useful over time. During our next session of ThingLink Live & On Demand,  I will be sharing this digital toolkit of resources and strategies to help educators design personalized learning experiences that effectively incorporate digital differentiation.

About Digital Differentiation

Technology is a tool that can be used to help teachers design and facilitate personalized learning experiences to address the diverse needs of all students. At the most basic level, digital tools can be used to help students find, understand, and use information. When combined with student-driven learning experiences that are fueled by essential questions and offer flexible learning paths, use of digital tools can break the learning barriers that exist in our classrooms.

3 Components of Digital Differentiation


Essential Questions

Student-driven learning experiences should be driven by standards-based  Essential Questions.  These questions should be open-ended to allow for flexible learning paths.


Flexible Toolkit 

Build a digital toolkit to provide students with flexible learning paths to meet their unique learning styles. Combine the best features of apps to create, publish and share content by AppSmashing!



Instructional Shifts 

The role of the teacher shifts to facilitate student-driven learning experiences. This role allows teachers to maximize instructional time because the classroom structure provides opportunities for frequent interaction with individual students for assessment, modification, reteaching and enrichment.
