Transcript of Using Blogs as ePortfolios:

Using Blogs as ePortfolios:
Sharing and Celebrating Student Reading, Writing, and Learning

In our creation of our integrated units of study, students became excited not only about the learning process that involved student driven application and inquiry but also the original products they created. We wanted an authentic way to share what students across grade levels were doing in our school and in our community and to also validate both teacher and student growth. This led us to using blogging as a platform to share what students were learning in real time as they were experiencing each part of the unit, but also to serve as a space to showcase samples of student work such as their writing products and their performances.
Classroom Blogs:
Examples of Inquiry, Integration, and Innovation
What Did We Learn?

In our partnership with the SWP this past year we looked closely at utilizing an inquiry-approach through project based learning in our instructional units to help us engage and motivate student learning.
