Differentiated learning plays a crucial role in ensuring students achieve their best learning outcomes. Learners have different ways of absorbing knowledge and information, therefore educators apply different pedagogies depending on students’ capabilities. However, this requires personalised planning, assessment and delivery.

This conference has been designed for you to explore approaches from best practice schools, and design how to apply and implement them in the context of your school. It will focus on the following key themes:
  • Identifying what your learner needs through assessment
  • Planning your curriculum around students’ abilities and needs
  • Overcoming your resources and time barriers to achieve differentiated pedagogy
  • Facilitating differentiation through use of technology
  • From each session you will take away key strategies and create new approaches to apply at your school straight after the conference!
