  • 1. Creating Digital Portfolios Documenting  Teacher  &  Student  Work       Desireé  Caskey   Billings  Public  Schools   www.bpstis.org     Access  this  document  online:   http://www.slideshare.net/caskeyd/creating-­‐digital-­‐portfolios        
  • 2. Topics Covered •  What  is  a  digital  portfolio   •  Why  use  a  digital  portfolio   –  Student   –  Teacher   •  Five  stages  of  digital  portfolio  building   •  Planning  –  Defining  the  context   •  Planning  –  Determining  the  content  &  layout   •   Gathering  the  tools  you  need   •  Adding  Content  to   –  How  to  embed   •  Adding  connections   –  How  to  insert  hyperlinks   •  Publishing  your  portfolio     2  
  • 3. What is a Digital Portfolio •  STUDENTS:  A  collection  of  work,   ideas  and  artifacts  to  represent  the   learning  process.   •  TEACHERS:  A  collection  of  work,   ideas,  artifacts,  and  resources  to  share   with  students,  parents  and  other   teachers.     •  Digital  portfolios  can  contain  images,   word  processing,  embedded,  and/or   multimedia  elements.     3  
  • 4. Why Use a Digital Portfolio STUDENT •  •  •  •  •  •  Assess  student  work   Guide  student  learning   The  learning  is  more  accessible  to  parents,  teachers  &   administrators   Creates  a  vehicle  for  continual  feedback     Assist  with  college/career  preparation   Representation  of  work  in  the  various  formats  allows  the   student  and  teacher  to  continually  and  more  accurately   receive  a  picture  of  the  students  work  and  progress.   WHAT  DOES  THE  RESEARCH  SAY?  Research  shows  that  students  at  all  levels  see  assessment  as   something  that  is  done  to  them  on  their  classwork  by  someone  else.  Beyond  "percent  correct,"   assigned   le?er   grades,   and   gramma@cal   or   arithme@c   errors,   many   students   have   li?le   knowledge   of   what   is   involved   in   evalua@ng   their   classwork.   PorColios   can   provide   structure   for   involving   students   in   developing   and   understanding   criteria   for   good   efforts,   in   coming   to   see   the  criteria  as  their  own,  and  in  applying  the  criteria  to  their  own  and  other  students'  work.     Research   also   shows   that   students   benefit   from   an   awareness   of   the   processes   and   strategies   involved  in  wri@ng,  solving  a  problem,  researching  a  topic,  analyzing  informa@on,  or  describing   their   own   observa@ons.   Without   instruc@on   focused   on   the   processes   and   strategies   that   underlie   effec@ve   performance   of   these   types   of   work,   most   students   will   not   learn   them   or   will   learn  them  only  minimally.  And  without  curriculum-­‐specific  experience  in  using  these  processes   and   strategies,   even   fewer   students   will   carry   them   forward   into   new   and   appropriate   contexts.   PorColios  can  serve  as  a  vehicle  for  enhancing  student  awareness  of  these  strategies  for  thinking   about  and  producing  work-­‐-­‐both  inside  and  beyond  the  classroom.     Office  of  Research  –  Educa1on  Consumer  Guide,  United  States  Government   4

  • 17. Adding Content to your Portfolio Embed, don’t link when possible Advantages  of  Embedding   •  Information  is  dynamic  –  when  the   original  changes,  your  widget  in  your   portfolio  changes  as  well.   •  Never  leave  the  site  –  because  embed   makes  your  element  a  part  of  the   website,  your  viewers  never  have  to   leave.   •  Embedding  makes  a  website  come   alive.  It  is  not  so  text-­‐heavy.   What  is  embedding?  Embedding  is  when  you  take  one  Web  2.0  tool  and   incorporate  it  into  another  Web  2.0  tool.  Your  embedded  tool  is  referred   to  as  a  widget.  Although  embedding  is  easy,  it  can  be  in@mida@ng   because  you  copy  and  paste  programming  code.     17
