Thursday, June 7, 2012 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.
