This recording of an OK2Ask online professional learning session from February 2018, opens in Adobe Connect. Differentiate your instruction with Symbaloo Learning Paths, interactive gameboard-style virtual lessons. Create pathways for students to learn at their own speed and infuse them with formative assessment questions, review material, and branching to construct personalized learning paths. Join us and learn how to create a learning path from scratch or by altering one created by another teacher. Learning paths provide real-time progress data and can include resources, articles, videos, and quizzes. Don't miss this opportunity to make learning fun and effective for all learners. Participants will: 1. Learn to create a basic Symbaloo Learning Path; 2. Understand how to use Symbaloo Learning Paths to differentiate classroom instruction; and 3. Plan for the use of Symbaloo Learning Paths in the classroom. This session is appropriate for teachers at all technology levels.
