We are asking students to become 21st century learners through inquiry and creation. They also need to develop the skills necessary to become productive members of our society. One way to do this is by teaching students to develop their own portfolio of skills and work samples presented digitally. This webinar will focus on student-created digital portfolios that can encompass work from a variety of classes and activities. The portfolios offer the chance for the students to share the products they have created through their learning, but also to reflect on the skills and abilities they developed in the process of creating those end products. Students create a website using Google Sites and use it to present examples of their work, including reflective writing on each example. The sites can then follow the students in all stages of their education and work as a functional portfolio for future job seeking.
Webinar attendees will understand the pedagogical and real-world significance of creating a student portfolio.
Webinar attendees will leave with skills and ideas for creating student digital portfolios through Google Sites.
Webinar attendees will develop lists of student projects and creations that could be included on a digital student portfolio.
