The brain research is clear when you tap into modalities, the different ways students learn, educators are truly differentiating instruction as the great Carol Ann Tomlinson avocates. Most the of the reason students do not meet these standards is because of low performance on non-fiction technical reading and ability to perform geometric calculations. When we give students the tutorials we make them read about how to solve geometric problems thus addressing both skill deficit areas. Students must find purpose to allow the activated learning to occur, which must come from the teacher to demonstrate how these software pieces are used to make things we use everyday.
