In an age in which technology changes at light speeds, pedagogies have become kaleidoscopes of shifting, adapting, and sometimes colliding methods for teaching students who are multi-cultural, multi-technological, multi-generational, multi-gender . . . multi-everything. This begs the question of how to bring order to a disorderly space in which "differentiation" has become a buzzword for providing students with individualized pedagogical space to explore their individual multiplicities. In order to answer this question and provide attendees a collaborative model for engaging students, this session is led by a team of three presenters, two students and the instructor of an upper level English Literature course required for Teacher Certification. By focusing on the use of multimodality and active learning techniques we provide attendees with three different perspectives for scaffolding texts and technology using techniques that work well for any discipline.
