Differentiated Learning Environments
With Beth Holland
As today's classrooms become increasingly diverse, teachers frequently find themselves working to address the varying needs of their students. Emerging technologies allow teachers to create flexible, individualized, curricula that can scaffold as well as enrich. The goal of this workshop is to explore and evaluate technologies to facilitate differentiation, support diverse learners, and create rich learning environments that meet the needs of all students.
Beth Holland joined the EdTechTeacher team in July 2011 to expand the online course offerings and instruct at workshops and presentations. She brings over 12 years of education experience, and most recently worked as the Director of Academic Technology at St. Michael's Country Day School in Newport, Rhode Island. During her tenure at St. Michael's, she worked with faculty members to integrate technology into their elementary and middle school curricula and taught students in grades 2-8 during technology classes. Before St. Michael's, Beth worked as a researcher at the Naval War College, a 9th grade English teacher, and an instructor at ActionQuest, an adventure learning summer program. Beth also has an Ed.M. in Technology, Innovation, and Education from the Harvard Graduate School of Education, and a B.S. in Communications from Northwestern University.
