You and your students are now preparing for a hybrid model of learning, where that learning is happening anytime, anywhere. This model of anytime, anywhere learning involves a combination of in-class, at-home, online, and offline learning. It’s more important now than ever to empower our students to easily capture and document evidence of learning in real-time, regardless of where the learning is taking place.
Keeping digital portfolios at the core of your work with students is key to building habits of documentation, making learning visible, and carrying on an ongoing conversation about growth with each student.
Making learning visible through documentation provides educators information about students’ learning and progress that may not be evident in formal assessments, checklists, and standardized tests. And it provides students with a space to see and engage with their own growth over time.
In this edWebinar, explore:
- What is documentation & why use documentation?
- How do I use documentation to assess my 21st-century learners?
- How do portfolios help me make student learning visible?
- How do I empower my students to drive their own learning and showcase their growth with a digital portfolio in remote, blended, and classroom environments?
- What does portfolio assessment look like at varying grade levels?
This recorded edWebinar will be of interest to elementary through high school teachers and school and district leaders.
