We know that every student learns differently—but the level of differentiation and personalization it can require to teach to each of their needs is impractical given the demands on most educators. While it can be overwhelming to ensure that we provide exactly what our learners need to be successful during and after they leave our classrooms, there are strategies we can employ that are manageable for educators and can best serve all students.

This recorded edWebinar is of interest to K-12 teachers and school and district leaders.
