Teaching to the middle—most teachers don’t want to do it. But when faced with a large class of learners with diverse proficiency, the middle is where many teachers find themselves. Knowing that he wasn’t challenging one-third of his class and teaching over the head of another, Peter Briggs, a music teacher at Lincoln High School (WA), wanted to find a way to manage and support growth for all skill levels. As he explained in the edWebinar, “Developing a Growth Mindset Using Digital Portfolios,” combining a change in his educational approach with the addition of differentiated assignments helped all students raise their performance.
In this edWebinar, learn how to encourage a growth mindset through communication with students and by promoting self-reflection in their digital portfolios.
edWeb.net and Nureva Inc. have partnered to present Digital Portfolios for K-12, a free professional learning community (PLC) for educators to share ideas and best practices around the meaningful integration of digital portfolios to empower students to take ownership of their learning.
Attendees of this webinar will leave with options for saving student work, promoting student ownership and encouraging student reflection with the ultimate goal of having them take responsibility for their academic progress.
