Why Students Should Blog in Public - 0 views

  •  
    "There are many answers to that question, but here is one: Public edu-blogging is an essential element of digital age education, because a student blog acts as a launch pad for developing and leveraging student connectivity, reflexivity, and personal learning networks."

  •  
    "The digital platform, which will be available beginning in April of this year, allows all high schoolers, even freshmen and sophomores, to begin storing their projects, papers and even video footage for possible inclusion in future college applications through a "digital locker," or storage, available in the app."

What are digital badges? - 0 views

  •  
    "Digital Badges in higher education also have an additional ability that is newly available - the ability to embed the badge into social platforms and have others "see into" the learning that has been accomplished via metadata that contains valuable information about the issuer, criteria, skills and evidence."

Do I Own My Domain If You Grade It? - 0 views

  •  
    "The first type of 'Domain' took audience into account, considering the implications of public scholarship, representation, and student agency. The second, in many ways, mirrored the traditional pedagogical structure by assigning papers or short answer assignments to be posted online through blogs. This is not necessarily bad, but also doesn't necessarily empower."

  •  
    The working group has heard and received suggestions across a broad range of topics. Here are a few examples: Make an institutional commitment to fostering high-quality hybrid instruction (online and face-to-face) and provide the IT infrastructure to support course development and redevelopment along those lines. Establish an experimental college with the freedom to innovate in different course formats and individualized interdisciplinary majors. Require an e-portfolio of all undergraduate students, connecting the first-year experience and co-curricular activities to their major field of study and career preparation.

Synergyse Blog: Using Google Sites for Elementary Student Portfolios - 0 views

  •  
    "When we started using Google Apps in our elementary district a few years ago, we figured it was time to test out electronic ways to present a year's worth of work, instead of the traditional binder. Our fourth, fifth and sixth grade students love using Google Sites to create their own portfolio as a web site. They can be creative, show their personality, and present an easy to navigate body of work to their parents . We continue using those portfolios each year and when it's time to update their portfolios, students get excited to see where they started. "

Teaching Students How to Effectively Archive - 0 views

  •  
    "Whether you are a student or not, everyone is actively releasing and building collections of  data. We are, in a sense, walking end-users that are compiling personal databases, and as more information is generated, maintaining privacy in a big data world becomes even more crucial."

Providing Students with *Hirable* Experiences - 1 views

  •  
    "I asked the lead tech  developers of several Cedar Rapids companies what they look for when hiring, and they all responded with, "The applicant's Github [open source] portfolio." Not their GPA. Not their test scores or transcripts. Their what-have-you-done files. The only way a student can have a Github portfolio is if they have a project worth working on, and the only way they can have that is if they've had generative interactions with the greater community; a community who has a plethora of problems worth working on."

    "With recent upgrades to the Google Drive app on the iPad, it is now a viable solution for student portfolios that can be created in their entirety on iPad. Everything that is created by a student can be uploaded directly to their Google Drive account and into a "Portfolio" folder that can then be shared with any one of their teachers."

Why My Six-Year-Olds Have Digital Portfolios - 2 views

  •  
    "From the first week of school, the six year olds in my classroom begin to create an online presence in the form of a digital portfolio.  We use a blogging platform to do this, and include artifacts that show their progress in writing, reading, math, social studies and science."

    This is what I LOVE about this article: "Students relish the feedback a comment gives, whether it is from a classmate, a parent, or someone they have never met. The audience becomes part of the student's learning." Now, I still have privacy concerns, but from reading her comments to others who were skeptical she says that she has not received inappriopriate comments in the 8 years she has been doing this. OK- Matt, my eyes are opening...a little bit. ;)
