Document Student Growth with Portfolios

“How you climb a mountain is more important than reaching the top.” – Yvon Chouinard

Digital portfolios are one of the most powerful ways my students take ownership of their learning and reflect on their learning journeys. Digital portfolios help students set, track, and achieve their academic learning goals. Check out several of my students’ reflective portfolios here. Students attach screenshots and links to their work along with a personal reflection of how they will apply the learning. This is followed by an overall reflection. This year I want to improve the portfolios by including three important parts. Part one entails setting academic goals and reflecting on strengths and weaknesses.  The second part is to get students to benchmark and reflect at more regular intervals through student led conferences. The third part includes the final reflection. The time to implement digital portfolios is at the start of the course. To help you get started find a slide presentation, tips, web tools and resources below. Also, check out my recent webinar recording of the process here.
