'"THE" solution for ALL teachers to "differentiate" and for students to be "self-differentiate"

I believe this tool really make all teachers empowered because they can differentiate better, promote personalized learning and encourage students to be more responsible, to make choices and therefore to be more empowered and true agent of their learning. The teachers and students can be creative, they can come up with really great ideas to use this tool beyond using it for support. I love the vocabulary building option when you highlight several words and it automatically creates a googledog with images, definitions and a places to take notes, really powerful for language learning!
I also love the multi-modalities: voice, pictures, word prediction, highlighters. Every learner NEEDS multi-modality, not only learners that are said to be "visual learner", "auditory learner", "kinestetic learner"...
Finally, the tool support self-directed learning, students can truly use it to continue their learning independently, get feedback and seek feedback from their peers or teachers. This improves their confidence in particular if they are struggling readers or just "sky" students (this gives an opportunity for them to speak safely by recording their voice and the teacher can then listen to it).
