When approaching teaching and learning through constructivist practices, one of the lovely things it makes apparent is that all learners learn and understand the world in myriad ways. In order to use constructivist practices effectively, a teacher must get to know how her/his different students construct or understand ideas.

At the heart of the constructivist approach is the belief and understanding that we all make sense of the world in different ways, we are all architects of knowledge and understanding, and our approaches will be very different.

By using differentiated grouping, which is based in groupings that meets individual needs, the teacher is also addressing the IB PYP requirement that all learning should be relevant, timely, significant and challenging for all students.

At its simplest level “Differentiation is about recognising DIVERSITY in the learning community to unlock potential”

At the deepest level differentiation is about

  • Respecting and valuing difference and diversity
  • Making learning relevant and engaging for each student
  • Recognizing and respecting the independence and interdependence of all learners in their learning community.
