Match your students’ needs: differentiate your lessons

Ideally, every teacher wants to match the level and needs of their students. In practice, this can be quite difficult if you consider crowded classes, lack of time and busy schedules. Yet making small, meaningful adjustments to your lessons can make a big difference!

Students are much more cooperative if you match their needs by differentiating your lesson material. Especially if you are teaching a restless group of students with big differences in levels and attitudes. Creating differentiated content might cost you some effort at the beginning, but on the long run it will save you a lot of time and energy.

It has been quite a challenge to find the best possible solutions for both teachers and students. Online tests are not always the ideal solution. Yet teachers had to think outside the box and have discovered interesting ways to approach concept tests.

During the pandemic digital tests have become the standard way to assess students’ knowledge remotely. What at the beginning seemed like a huge challenge has quickly become “normal”. Even teachers with little digital experience have reacted positively to this change. Why? Digital test correction is mostly automated and saves teachers a lot of time!
