PowerPoint does have its place within education when used appropriately. I think all educators need to be reminded of how to use it effectively. #edchat   #edtech   #post

A fascinating article concerning the historical accuracy of Ataturk's famous Anzac speech. A good inquiry for history students.  #historyteacher   #aussieed

A nice simple infographic of ideas for personalising learning. #edchat   #aussieed   #post  
 
Not all students need the same thing at the same time. Personalized learning implies choice, multiple pathways to learning, many ways to demonstrate competency and resists the notion that all students learn the same way.
Each student is unique and learns in different ways. There are many ways to use this diversity as a classroom strength.
