Tiered Learning Materials

One of the greatest applications of technology in education that I have seen lately is the publishing of Tiered Digital Resources. Tiered Resources allow for the reader to access an appropriate reading and difficulty level. The topics are identical for each level, but clicking on, say, the ‘beginner’ level brings up content much simpler than the content on the ‘advanced’ level. Here are three examples of such tiered web sites

With the development of tools like this, the concept of differentiated learning will become an easier proposition for the classroom teacher.
