Differentiation Hour: 1-to-1 iPads + Small Group Instruction

Classroom Profile

Get an inside look at an innovative 7th grade classroom at KIPP: Impact Middle School in Jacksonville, FL. Watch as classroom teacher, Ted Payton, facilitates a 1:1 blended learning classroom and describes how eSpark has provided new ways to achieve differentiated instruction. In this Differentiation "Power Hour" model, students have one hour focused on differentiation. Each student works on their personalized learning plan in eSpark while Mr. Payton pulls small groups of students to work on focused academic skills. 1-to-1 devices are available for Differentiation Power Hour, but multiple classrooms share the same iPad cart which drastically reduces hardware costs.
