Middle school uses iPads to offer differentiated instruction - Courtesy of ASCD

Differentiated instruction made easier with technology. 
Sixth-graders at Hazelbrook Middle School in Tualatin, Ore., this year will be using iPads in language arts lessons as part of an effort to close the racial achievement gap, while also tailoring lessons to student needs. Teachers say they plan to use the iBooks Author application to have students create stories. The iPads will be synced together and linked with sixth-grade learning specialist Rory Moore's laptop, so he can offer immediate and custom feedback to each child. The Oregonian (Portland) (9/4)
