This issue calls for examples of how to use tech tools to deliver differentiated instruction. Through skills practice and navigating a menu of leveled options on individual devices, for example, technology has the potential to make differentiated instruction more seamless and viable in busy classrooms. Which tools and methodologies hold the greatest potential? How can schools make best use of free applications available on hardware already in the schools or on students’ personal devices? What are some of the pitfalls of relying on technology as part of a differentiation strategy?
