To Differentiate or Not to Differentiate? Using Internet-Based Technology in the Classroom ARTICLE

Quarterly Review of Distance Education Volume 11, Number 1, ISSN 1528-3518

Abstract

In the targeted school in the Cleveland Metropolitan School District, teachers focus on differentiating instruction with technology-based software. Differentiated instruction is the chosen teaching strategy over direct instruction because students and teachers alike prefer to work in cooperative groups while using technology in the classroom. Compass Learning is an Internet-based software program that differentiates instruction, prescribes learning paths, allows students to work cooperatively, and increases overall student achievement in reading skills for the targeted students. As a whole, teachers' surveys suggested that teachers' knowledge of overall technology-based instruction increased because of using the Internet-based software package.
