Additionally, Noah Webster adds another component of differential learning by implementing a standard based technology program. The curriculum allows the generation of student achievement data that provides teachers and their education design teams the ability to identify concepts and topics that the individual student has mastered or needs additional reteaching.

Each teacher has been provided with technology tools such as interactive smart boards equipped with projectors. Teachers can illustrate what they are teaching, thereby engaging the student’s attention at a greater level.
