Web 2.0 and Blended Learning
I wanted to pass along some resources in regards to Blended Learning and online resources to implement into the classrooms. Most of these resources I have used within the blended learning classroom. The majority the resources are free and online. Therefore if you are using the rotational blended learning model these tools can be easily implemented into the content area.

Nice post, Marcia! I'm most interested in reading instruction and literacy education, and am thankful that that innovations in technology are making Differentiated Instruction a simpler, and more easily streamlined process. In addition to being easy to use, Edtech differentiation tools are revolutionizing the personalized aspect of DI. I've particularly liked your description of Newsela, which I've found to be a very valuable resource. Similar to Newsela, another free reading tool is Books That Grow. Books That Grow has a library of classic fiction pieces, primary source documents, and informational texts that can be read at multiple levels of text complexity. Like Newsela, most pieces can be read at 3-5 different levels of complexity. This tool is particularly helpful with ELL students, who can have their reading scaffolded for them. Signing up for an account is entirely free!
