Watch the Recording

Move your students from a fixed to a growth mindset with helpful strategies from educator Peter Briggs. In this edWebinar, Peter shares how he encourages a growth mindset through regular communication with students and by promoting self-reflection in their digital portfolios. He also discusses how he has used digital portfolios for communicating student learning, and the benefits of allowing technology to support his teaching practices.

“I was astounded by the visible student growth I saw over the process of three to four years of using an eportfolio. That evidence-based record of mastery was phenomenal.”

In this recorded edWebinar, you will be able to watch Peter and many other educators to collaborate and discover solutions to help your students today. This recorded session will be of particular benefit to K-12 teachers and school and district leaders.
