Novice teachers struggle in differentiating their instruction for special education students. Most new teachers can remember their “Students With Special Needs” course in college, and being aware that there would be special education students in their classroom. They are not, however, prepared for the reality of how many special education students they would have, and the severity of their disabilities.
One of the most significant benefits of connected learning is the ability for educators to follow their specific passions to improve professionally. Motivated by an intrinsic desire to improve, connected learning and PLN’s provide personalization and differentiation like never before.
