Differentiation is a pragmatic process that enables teachers to maximise each student’s learning in the long term. It is the process of giving students appropriate levels of feedback, scaffolding, and targeted practise to support them in achieving these common learning goals.
In this webinar, Bukky Yusuf FCCT will define the purpose of differentiation and why it is important for ensuring the progress of all learners, provide strategies to overcome differentiation challenges on a day-to-day basis, and give practical examples of differentiation approaches in the classroom.
