Voluntary Workshop
Survey Planned separate from Workshop YES! BUT... monti tanner - EDUC 4500 quantitative qualitative Whether they apply to the life outside of the highschool
If it can't fit on a social networking site, it's probably not going to be useful to students for any real purpose.
Make work
How can I ensure that the goal, format, and use of the portfolio best serve my individual students?
I hate questions like this. I don't have an answer. I like using portfolios because it offers students a chance to view their educational journey... on the previous page... there should be a comment box, because I checked off the things that are most important to my work currently, so I don't necessarily need to learn anything about those areas.
Portfolios could provide wonderful opportunities for assessment for learning.
student driven
That it is a meta-cognitive project and is a unique creation by the student.
What is the purpose of this? Is it a purposeful activity?
show case
Portfolios brings relevancy to student work, both in using the student's strengths in their course work and in bridging the gap between the real world and school work as a concrete end product that students may leave school with.
The students I have seen with portfolios put in less effort than the teachers involved and most ended up in the garbage at the end.
Why use them?
The real, valuable use for the senior high student
Concrete examples of the ways e-portfolios are being used at the sr. high level.
What portfolios should look like specifically (to suit different purposes).
more exemplars in different subject areas
How to explain the purpose to the students to engage them in the process. As in, why are we doing this, is it for "marks"?
Still not 100% on why we need to do this?
