In this lesson (via the Teaching Channel), the instructor is able to use technology to differentiation learning around poetry. Differentiated learning allows teachers to find ways for students to learn the same content as their peers but in their own leveled Zone of Proximal Development (ZPD). Notice in this lesson that the teacher integrates technology to allow students to listen to poetry, make poetry visual, allow students to create their own poetry and collaborate with others on poetry. Technology gives students opportunities to differentiate the content, the process of learning and the product.
