My class is made up of diverse learners with unique and individual needs. I don't think my class is any different then any other class in terms of diversity of learner needs. As much us we are all alike, we are all very different too. I do my best to meet their individual needs by providing them with choice as often as I can. I have written about how I do that here, here, here, and here. But providing so much choice means that I am not collecting the same assignments from each child in my class, nor am I expecting everyone one to show their learning in the same way. But I still need to see that they are learning, and I still need to be able to share this learning with their parents. This is where technology really helps to make thinking visible.
Technology is allowing my students to add voice to their work. My students often take pictures of their pen and paper writing, and then add voice to their work through a variety of different iPad apps. Here's a sample of one student reading his non digital writing. This work was shared on this student's blog for both me, his family, and the world to see.
