  • Set Up -Introduce myself
  • Please tell me this is not what you’re feeling when we mention “Technology”…it’s our goal this year to take those fears and…
  • Support you! Wherever you are, we want to HELP. We are a click or call away, let us help you if you have a problem or need assistance. If we can’t help you, we’ll find someone who can.
  • Today, we’re going to discuss e-Portfolios. Before I begin, I have links to my resources on the last few slides…so I will make the PowerPoint available for you on my website.
  • We want to review the process for archiving and collecting students’ work in an e-portfolio to enhance and showcase student-centered learning. Keeping e-portfolios are really nothing new at all; it’s just been improved with technology. E-Portfolios have been around for 2 decades, when research revealed their impact on student achievement. We want to strive for consistency at each campus, grade level, and classroom. Our goal is for you to have students become diligent in saving digital media in their network folders. We want to allow students time to reflect on their projectsand choose what they think is their best learning. Today we will share tips to help you in this process.
  • As we target the top level of Blooms {Create} we reach the higher order thinking skills; I like this chart, because it takes in the student’s average retention rates in the learning process. Consider your teaching methods as you present your content. The top of chart students are passive learners. We want to move the students into a more active learning environment. Points: Let’s think about our District Resources – and where they might fall on the retention chart…Discovery Education video (20%)’s Interactive lessons (20%-30%)Discussions (classroom oral-limited to those who are comfortable speaking out) Web tools available that encourage collaborations, as well as Gaggle, Blogs, Moodle, Google’s Journals (Practice by Doing) application lessonsDigital Storytelling and/or Presentation apps
  • We need to strive for a Balance! Learners find their voice and passions through choice and personalization! A portfolio is a student’s story of their own learning. As we teach this year, let us seek those project-based lessons that showcase a student’s passion, creativity, and make sure they are saved on the network to be included in the selection process for their e-portfolio. Think of PBL … as Passion Based Learning…instead of Project Based Learning…give students a CHOICE/VOICE. Tell about Google’s philosophy with employees…and how teachers are taking that same concept and created the Genius Hour.
  • Look at this chart:on the left we have the traditional ePortfolio processes; Note that Feedback was limited to the Teacher; in the middle is the different processes involved through Social Networking. The right column is the value added by Technology. It is said that the Heart ‘n Soul of a Portfolio and Social Networking is the Reflections and the Relationships, not the Technology. Remember the technology is transparent, and makes an impact.
  • E-Portfolios change and grow with the student. It is a journey through their education. Some say a portfolio tells a story…of their knowing…about things, about oneself, about their audience. Learning is a continuous CYCLE in which we must involve the learner (active) and by incorporating REFLECTION in the process, it enhances student achievement. They need time to reflect…how can I improve, what should I change?
  • There are many products students createthat can be used for reflections, guidance, learning, assessments, identity, and accountability. There are many online resources with lessons suited for e-portfolios in Easy Tech and Atomic Learning. Allow students time to tell their stories and reflect on the outcome. No cookie-cut assignments! Personalization….creativity, allow them to put their own stamp, allows meaning and purpose.
  • We went into several classrooms and asked students to choose their best work from their network folders. They were given the Reflection Guidelines to answer about their work that they chose to place in their student e-portfolio. This one was used with Elementary…
  • And this one was used with secondary students.
  • Here are some LCM student samples to share with you…Some students were given a choice to type, record, or narrate their reflections. Note in some samples, teachers recorded students in an interview about their project or lesson.
  • Must login to Gaggle and have it opened before the links will open up on these blogs. (Not sure if Kathy will be able to view these)
