Developing Digital Portfolios

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Digital Portfolios provide students with the opportunity to collect and reflect upon their learning journey. Our students are creating digital portfolios that allow them to receive feedback from parents, peers and teachers. These portfolios combine work completed on both iPads and computers, and store selected information from across the curriculum (photos, video clips, projects, photos of handwritten work) in one online space. We have several years experience working with a variety of tools and  we will share how our Grade 3 students use Seesaw to create a seamless digital portfolio experience, with the recording option enabling students to explain their thinking quickly and in more detail. This is the start of a student's ongoing digital portfolio. The basic principles and ideas can be applied when creating digital portfolios using other applications such as Google sites.
