+ Impact of technology on student achievement Students learn more in less time Student attitudes were more positive Student achievement in technology rich environments was increased The level of effectiveness is dependent on the software design, the teachers role and level of access
+ How can using technology enhance the learning for students? Identify where technology use and learning can take place Make the technology available to students relative to their ability Give instruction on using the technology Use peer tutoring Offer a wide range of technology options Integrate in a meaningful way
+ Create opportunities for interaction outside the classroom Provide opportunities for students to practice, grow and expand their skills Encourage enrichment through the use of technology Support other teachers with the use of technology Value technology as a learning tool in the classroom
+ Web 1.0 to Web 2.0 Web 1.0 was about reading, Web 2.0 is about writing Web 1.0 was about companies, Web 2.0 is about communities Web 1.0 was about home pages, Web 2.0 is about blogs Web 1.0 was about wires, Web 2.0 is about wireless Web 1.0 was about owning, Web 2.0 is about sharing Web 1.0 was about dialup, Web 2.0 is about broadband Web 1.0 was about hardware costs, Web 2.0 is about bandwidth costs
+ Four tools that can be used to support Gifted students. Web Quests Wikis Blogs Cartooning using Comic Life
+ The use of Web Quests is one such tool that can be used for differentiation in the classroom either with a small group or for a student to use as an independent study.Web Quests Web Quests contain a list of teacher-screened websites that can be used to do research and complete specific tasks within a defined structure. When using these with gifted students, the tasks should be more complex than with the regular population.
+ There are three different ways that teachers can apply Web Quests: Use a Web Quest that has already been created and is available on the Internet. Take a Web Quest that has been created and modify it to meet the needs of your students. Create your own Web Quest.
+ For sources of Web Quests that are already created, take a look at WebQuest.org Best WebQuests iWebQuest For sources to modify existing Web Quests, see Adapting and Enhancing Existing Web Quests
+ For help in creating your own Web Quests, check out WebQuest.org WebQuest Taskonomy InstantProjects.org WebQuest 101
+ Activity Using the two printed web quests, Identify the common structure of a web quest. Identify any changes, if any, you would need to make for a gifted student. Identify the HOTS, using the Blooms Taxonomy Identify the technology that could be integrated into this project.

+ Blogs A blog is a personal diary. A daily pulpit. A collaborative space. A political soapbox. A breaking-news outlet. A collection of links. Your own private thoughts. Memos to the world. Your blog is whatever you want it to be. There are millions of them, in all shapes and sizes, and there are no real rules. In simple terms, a blog is a web site, where you write stuff on an ongoing basis. New stuff shows up at the top, so your visitors can read what's new. Then they comment on it or link to it or you. Or not.
+ Examples of blogs Six months in a fleecy coat Ideas of how this could be used in class. (Think,pair, share)
+ Comic Life Software used for publishing Samples of student work Year 5/6 Self information Product from inquiry work How could you use this software?
+ E-learning and differentiation Blooms Digital Taxonomy ** Further ideas for digital differentiation.**
