A student captures examples of his or her best work—both individual and team projects—in a digital portfolio available to families, other teachers, future employers, and institutions of higher education.
I'm excited the SC Education Vision includes this component. I am attempting to use this idea with my students as we explore developing blogs. It has been a slow process at this point, but the reflective engagement has captured the interest of many in my class.
Imagine if every student started a blog in K or 1st grade. When they graduated they would have an online compilation of all of their writing in one place. That would be powerful!! In addition to their writing, they would have all of the content they have created whether it be video, audio, etc…We all need to start doing this.
Our second grade class will begin ePortfolios this year. Even at their young age, they are producing work of which they are proud. ePortfolios will provide them with an opportunity to showcase and reflect on their own learning and growth.
would this portfolio be stored on a flashdrive for each student they hold or would it be kept on a web site?
Could this replace the whole idea of traditional report cards?
Portfolios are very important in todays society. http://t.co/Gx1wPZgV
I definitely agree. Having a digital portfolio is a great way to take advantage of modern technology. Using this technology is also a great skill to learn.
This is great! I feel that grades fail to reflect the quality of work from students. With a portfolio you actually experience the work of students as it is meant to be experienced. Although grading is an important part of education, an “B” or a “89″ doesn’t capture the emotional context of the work.
