The social nature of this course, and the social ways in which the diffi-tools were shared reminded me of an Edutopia article I came across during reading and research for this course. John McCarthy's "50+ Tools for Differentiating Instruction Through Social Media" focuses on the use of social media to differentiate for students, but it could certainly also apply to differentiating support for teachers as they participate in new learning projects and experiences with their students. A teacher or team of educators could also use a tool like Kaizena to set up a help site specific to their project...and they could partner with other teachers to create a team of supports for students engaged in a shared project. Thanks to the ways we are able to connect ourselves and our students to resources via technology, differentiating has certainly become a more robust, rich experience for all.
