Guide Differentiated Instructions with Wipebook
"After receiving professional development, teachers collaborated and use Wipebook Flipchart to write down new ideas they want to implement this year."
How do you distinguish small group instruction using the data you already collect? Teachers began the day collaborating on how differentiated instruction has looked in their classrooms previously.
Teachers then followed up with new ideas they would like to implement after receiving the day's professional development. They shared their ideas and collaborated with each other using the vertical non-permanent surfaces, called Wipebook Flipcharts.
Comparing Current Reality to Future Practices
With Wipebook Flipcharts, math teachers were able to reflect their ideas on their current practices with differentiated instructions. Then, share their thoughts with colleagues and discuss them in groups and erase the ones that will not be considered.
After receiving professional development, teachers collaborated and used Wipebook Flipchart to write down new ideas they want to implement this year. Teachers could then discuss their colleague's ideas and expand on them.
With the Wipebook Scan App, it's possible to digitally save these thoughts by scanning them and saved on Google Drive directly.
Here are some pictures of their thoughts written on the whiteboard flipchart. This practice helps you to track your progress and see how you improve over time and save your work to Google Drive so you can access it later.
Collaboration is Key-No right or wrong answer
The objective of the activity was to make a reflection on two main questions:
- “What does differentiation look like in your current classroom?”
- “I will implement differentiated/small group instruction by…”
These questions don't have a right or wrong answer, so they're perfect for discussion and brainstorming with others. Teachers work in small groups to answer the questions on the VNPS using dry-erase markers, then collaborate on responses so everyone can get fresh ideas to implement in class.
Wipebook's Dry-erase boards are useful because they are erasable, so teachers can write down more ideas without worrying about them being permanent.
I received a reusable flipchart pack of 10 double-sided sheets that can be detached and used in different spaces and then reattached for further sessions. One of the sheets was heavy-duty that doesn't tear apart, so it may last longer.
This dry-erase whiteboard pack allows me to create small groups of teachers to co-work and brainstorm ideas from what they learned from the past PD, so everyone was able to participate and give their personal points of view.
