Cue, Vicki Davis and Differentiated instruction

It was a pleasure hearing Vicki Davis talk about Differentiated Instruction and the use of  technology.  As she so eloquently explained, with technology, differentiation is much easier.  Some of the great things she said are on my Twitter, but I’ll list a few here:

– It is important to call “social networking” educational networking.
– She talked about the six frames for education:  educational networking, wiki, student personal learning network, audio creation, video creation, and global connections.
– She applied these six frames to Gardner’s Multiple Intelligences (linguistic, logical-mathematical, naturalist, spatial, bodily-kinesthetic, musical, interpersonal and intrapersonal).  She has a great graphic illustrating this.  See her slideshow on slideshare.

She shared this great video about how kids view education and the future.  This is a MUST SEE and MUST SHARE Video!

    Wish I had connected with you at CUE! I’m still reflecting on the sessions I attended. (Still wavering on the value of Smartboards/Prometheans – and didn’t really find the answer during Marzano’s keynote).

    Wow, thank you so much for sharing your reflections and thoughts. I did update the presentation just now from the airport and posted it to the Conference Ning ( and on my Wiki (

    Been pondering the response about cell phones and talking with my husband on it. Sometimes it happens that we have epiphanies as we speak and it really hit me how well the cell phone can be our friend in differentiation!! Just think we’re missing the boat on that one.

    Thank you so much again for sharing and reflecting!
