Weebly

Weebly is a site specifically designed for students to create their own websites.  It will host their sites for free, and is extremely user-friendly.  Ideas for differentiation with this site?

  1. Teachers can create their own websites on the site, designing different pages with different assignments for students based on ability levels or multiple intelligences.  This could be an alternative to a menu or tic-tac-toe board.
  2. Students can create their own websites as final products for independent studies based on rubrics.

Math Pickle

I haven’t had a chance to try this one with students, yet, but it shows great promise.  With videos of different math challenges and supporting resources for K-12, this site has great potential for allowing students to do some independent critical thinking.

Extend-A-Menu

This is an invaluable tool for teachers to help with differentiation for all levels.  If you click on the “Demo” at the top, you can create your own menu using “The Differentiator”.  You do not need to pay to use the demo, but there is a $20 subscription service that allows you to save your menus online.  These are brought to you by www.byrdseed.com.
