Using Skype to Discuss Using Digital Portfolios to Collect & Evaluate Student Work

Today in her Using Digital Portfolios to Collect & Evaluate Student Work workshop, Stephanie Madlinger connected briefly via Skype to high school English teacher Nicholas Provenzano, who holds a Masters Degree in Educational Technology from Central Michigan University. He discussed with the St. Louis participants at Cooperating School Districts how he uses Web 2.0 to encourage student writing- citing Google Apps, Blogger and Evernote as his favorites.

Using Digital Portfolios to Collect & Evaluate Student Work

Using Digital Portfolios to Collect & Evaluate Student Work is a new workshop being offered by Cooperating School Districts of Greater St. Louis this summer.  Are you ready for an easier way to collect resources in one location? Do you want a better organization system for collecting artifacts? “In K-12 schools, the primary purpose of portfolios is to support both the assessment of learning and the assessment for learning” (Stiggins, 2002).

We’ll explore various digital tools to assist both teachers and students in collecting information and displaying work. Learn how to use online resources such as Google Apps, LiveBinders, Wikis, and Evernote to evaluate and share resources, projects, and artifacts. We will discuss the three most common types of portfolios: the working portfolio, the display portfolio, and the assessment portfolio. We’ll also look at how they act as a management system to support both formative (facilitating student feedback) and summative assessment (collecting and aggregating evaluation data). This workshop is for teachers & leaders wanting to develop an online collection of resources and artifacts for continuous learning and reflection.
