DEBATE


Intelligence

  • Alfred Binet:

    differentiate “uneducable” studentsfromtheotherstudents.

INTELLIGENCE


Intelligence1

  • Twoschools of thought:

    • One general intelligence: thereisone factor fromwhichallintelligenceisderived.

    • Multipleintelligences: there are differentkinds of intelligence.

  • General consensus:

    “Individualsdifferfromoneanother in theirabilitytounderstandcomplex ideas, toadapteffectivelytotheenvironment, tolearnfromexperience, toengage in variousforms of reasoning, toovercomeobstaclesbytakingthought” (Neisser et al., 1996)

DIFFERENTIATED INSTRUCTION THEORY

    • Abilities

    • Experiences

    • Needs

    • Learningstyle

    • Languageproficiency

    • Backgroundknowledge

    • Readinesstolearn

  • Teachersneed “sufficientappropriateknowledge of thepupils plus theabilityto plan and deliversuitablelessonseffectively, so as tohelpallpupilsindividuallytomaximizetheirlearning, whatevertheir individual situation” (K. Bigo)

DIFFERENTIATED INSTRUCTION THEORY


Differentiated instruction theory2

Studentslearnbestwhentheymakeconnectionsbetweenthecurriculum and theirdiverseinterests and experiences.

Thegreatestlearningoccurswhenstudents are pushedslightlybeyondthepointwherethey can workwithoutassistance.

“Ensuringthatwhat a studentlearns, how he/shelearns, and how he/shedemonstrateswhat he/she has learnedis a match forthatstudent’sreadinesslevel, interests and preferredmode of learning”

JSP 2011-2012

DIFFERENTIATED INSTRUCTION THEORY


Influences

Vigotsky: individualslearnbest in accordancewiththeirreadinessto do so.

Bruner: wheninterestistapped, learningis more likelytoberewarding and thestudentbecomes more autonomous.

Gardner: schoolsshouldoffer individual-centerededucation.

JSP 2011-2012

INFLUENCES


Gardner s multiple intelligences theory

“Studentspossessdifferentkinds of minds and thereforelearn, remember, perform and understand in differentways”

“Weknowtheworldthroughlanguage, logical-mathematicalanalysis, spatialrepresentation, musical thinking, the use of thebodytosolveproblemsortomakethings, anunderstanding of otherindividuals, and anunderstanding of ourselves”

DIFFERENTIATED INSTRUCTION THEORY AND TEACHERS


Differentiated instruction theory and teachers1

Examine your role as teacher: diversifyinstructionalmethods, facilitate time, space and materials, identifydifferentmethods of assessment.

DIFFERENTIATED INSTRUCTION THEORY AND TEACHERS


Strategies for differentiating instruction

  • Basedon Content

    • Utilizepre-tests to assesswhere individual studentsneed to beginstudy of a given topic or unit.

    • Encouragethinking at variouslevels of Bloom'staxonomy.

    • Use a variety of instructionaldeliverymethods to address differentlearningstyles.

    • Break assignments intosmaller, moremanageable parts thatincludestructureddirections for each part.

    • Choosebroadinstructionalconcepts and skillsthatlendthemselves to understanding at variouslevels of complexity.

Strategiesfor DifferentiatingInstruction


Strategies for differentiating instruction1

  • Based on Process

    • Provideaccess to a variety of materials whichtargetdifferentlearningpreferences and readingabilities.

    • Developactivitiesthattargetauditory, visual, and kinestheticlearners.

    • Establishstations for inquiry-based, independent learningactivities.

    • Createactivitiesthatvary in level of complexity and degree of abstractthinkingrequired.

    • Use flexible grouping to group and regroupstudentsbased on factors including content, ability, and assessmentresults.

Strategies for differentiating instruction2

  • Basedon Product

    • Use a variety of assessmentstrategies, includingperformance-based and open-endedassessment.

    • Balanceteacher-assigned and student-selectedprojects.

    • Offerstudents a choice of projectsthatreflect a variety of learningstyles and interests.

    • Makeassessmentanongoing, interactiveprocess.
