How Do Digital Portfolios Help Students?

How Do Digital Portfolios Help Students? | Educational technology , Erate, Broadband and Connectivity | Scoop.it
Kids today can create and share their work with the world through digital portfolios, they have the authentic audience who will not only read it but also care about it.

Ana Cristina Pratas's curator insight, September 30, 2:07 PM
  • "Having a digital portfolio helps students to brand themselves based on the skills that they want to showcase to potential employers or school administrators. At the very least, having a digital portfolio is a starting point for a dialogue with people that are interested in the same field/industry or can contribute to knowledge sharing.  
  • Digital portfolios allow for practicing digital citizenship, become Googled with educational, share quality projects for college entrance, provide authentic connections outside the classroom, show understanding etc.
  • Portfolios help students develop a sense of belonging and to own their learning. I think their power goes beyond helping students document their work and learning experience. Their historical value has an immense impact on curriculum design and evaluation, as well as in the documentation of Approaches to Teaching and Learning. We are living in times where the sense of authorship is a must, when the information 'that needs to go in books' will be outdated by the time it is published, so portfolios give us an edge on that.
  • The most important value of a digital portfolio is the intrinsic boost to a student's self-confidence. They can clearly see their own accomplishments. That self-confidence is a key to the student's future success.
  • To focus the question a bit, in the higher education context keeping a collection of written work and associated research via blog or portfolio can be an excellent way to introduce technical skills that may not be addressed in other courses, e.g. basic coding by introduction to markdown, etc."

Google Launches Drive For Education With Unlimited Storage | TechCrunch

Google Launches Drive For Education With Unlimited Storage | TechCrunch | Educational technology , Erate, Broadband and Connectivity | Scoop.it

by Frederic Lardinois

 

"Students whose school use Google Apps for Education will soon be able to store as many files in their Google Drive folders as they like.

"Earlier this year, Google launched Drive for Work, its premium $10/month version of Google Drive with unlimited storage and a couple of additional enterprise features. Today, the company announced that is bringing unlimited storage to Google Apps for Education soon, too, with the launch of Drive for Education.

"Individual files can measure up to 5TB, which should be more than enough for most legitimate use cases.

"Just like the rest of the Google Apps for Education suite, Drive for Education is available free of charge for all non-profit educational institutions (and there are no ads either). As a Google spokesperson told me, Drive for Education will automatically become available to all Google Apps for Education users over the coming weeks. This is a slow rollout, however, and it will be a few weeks before it reaches all users."

In 2010, NASA and the National Science Foundation asked the National Research Council to assemble a committee of experts to develop an integrated national strategy that would guide agency investments in solar and space physics for the years 2013-2022. That strategy, the result of nearly 2 years of effort by the survey committee, which worked with more than 100 scientists and engineers on eight supporting study panels, is presented in the 2013 publication, Solar and Space Physics: A Science for a Technological Society. This booklet, designed to be accessible to a broader audience of policymakers and the interested public, summarizes the content of that report.
