Differentiated Teaching: Maximizing Learning for All
Differentiated Instruction refers to creating different pathways through which students with different abilities, interests and learning needs acquire knowledge of new concepts as part of the everyday learning process. It involves the efforts of teachers to respond to the different needs of their students in the classroom, with the goal of achieving the best learning experience. It also allows students to take ownership of their own learning and offers opportunities for active and collaborative learning.
The purpose of this teacher training program, therefore, is twofold; on the one hand, to familiarize the participants with the philosophy and pedagogical principles of differentiated teaching and on the other to provide the required training in order to plan and implement differentiated teaching programs for students of primary and secondary education.
In particular, the individual objectives of the program are the following:
a) to ensure a unified logic and understanding of the theoretical principles of Differentiated Instruction
b) to highlight the structural elements of the model, which aims at the inclusion of all students of a school class in the learning
c) to provide teachers with specific strategies and lesson plans in the application of Differentiated Instruction in various cognitive areas/subjects, e.g. Language, Mathematics, History, Environmental Studies, etc.
d) to provide practices and techniques of teaching to support every student with learning difficulties due to disability, cultural differences, e.g. Roma children or due to an immigrant/refugee background.
Corfu is a beautiful green island, which enjoys a mild Mediterranean climate. Corfu is a very popular tourist destination. Up until the early 20th century, it was mainly visited by the European royals and elites. It is still popular with the global elite. The island’s history is laden with battles and conquests. Corfu was long controlled by Venice and repulsed several Turkish sieges, before falling under British rule following the Napoleonic Wars. Corfu was eventually ceded by the British Empire along with the remaining islands of the United States of the Ionian Islands, and unification with modern Greece was concluded in 1864 under the Treaty of London. Corfu is renowned for its long tradition and rich culture which is unlike any other Greek island. In 2007, the city’s old city was designated as a UNESCO World Heritage site. Here you will also discover a compact world of beautiful beaches and stunning mountain peaks, ancient ruins and picturesque villages. There is something for everyone on the island, whether you prefer peace and quiet or a lively cosmopolitan destination.
