  1. Sam Gliksman says:

    Agreed Gary. The one that always gets me the most is the way “differentiated instruction” is applauded as a transformative use of technology. Differentiated instruction still assumes that all students must have the same pre-determined end point – we’re just graciously allowing them some different paths to getting there. Instead, “differentiated learning” would recognize that students have individual passions and learning needs. Technology would be viewed as a tool for student empowerment and give them the ability to grow and gravitate towards their own unique destinations.
