Dr. Helen Barrett: ePortfolios for Learning: Evernote for Intermediate Portfolios | 6-Traits Resources | Scoop.it

This blog attracts a lot of silent readers. Last November, one of my readers wrote to me with his story of how he was starting to use Evernote for ePortfolios in his grade 3-5 classroom.

 

The teachers assign time to work on Evernote every day, as a way for students to set goals and document their progress toward achieving their goals. On the day I visited, students were able to go to the only lab in the school, to work on their reflections. They preferred doing most of their writing with a regular keyboard, not the tiny keyboard on the iPod Touch, but they used its camera extensively to document their projects. This picture was taken with my iPhone directly into the Evernote app which uploaded to my account on the Evernote website.

How to use Scribd to create a writing portfolio. 


From Richard Byrne:


"With the help of Steve Hargadon and Chris Dawson I recently discovered a neat feature in Scribd. In Scribd you can create public collections to which any Scribd user can add documents. As the creator of the collection you can moderate the submissions before they appear in your collection. I made a short screencast on how to do this. The screencast is embedded below."

Sarah can read very expressively, and it was not only fun to review her writing progress over the years tonight, but also remember together many of the things that have happened since we moved to Oklahoma from Texas five years ago. Without a doubt the most touching essay Sarah read tonight was "Yellow Cards." It made us both cry. In it, she recounts a story about Kent Wilson, who was a member of our church and Sunday School teacher who was very dear to Sarah. It is precious to have this story recorded in her voice, at age 10.
