Abstract

The last few years, the differentiation of instruction became fashionable in Cyprus after the reformation of the curriculum in primary education. Although, the majority of the teachers supports the philosophy of differentiation, few of them turn it into practice, despite the mixed-ability students’ populations in their classrooms. They may not avoid it deliberately but due to the lacks of material-technical infrastructure and knowledge concerning how to adjust their teaching in particular characteristics of their students. This paper aims to outline a trial for the introduction of an innovating approach for teaching WMPS by bearing in mind the benefits deriving from the use of ICT for the differentiation of the instruction, the restricted technological facilities in mainstream primary-school classrooms in Cyprus, and the particular needs and difficulties of students with dyslexia included in the classroom in WMPS.
