Students learn in different ways, the more you differentiate, the more chances you have to "catch" all of your students. It also keeps it more interesting for everyone involved!
I noticed not only do students learn in different ways, but that each student might or might not have different levels of ability, By differentiating, you have the ability to reach alot more of the students in your classroom.
Our job in creating 21st century learners is to challenge them to find ways to access their passion. As teachers we need to be ok with the fact that learning in messy and you may not have the answer. It is hard and complicated :)
