Very thorough guide to using, assessing and making ePortfolios happen. Plenty of tips and suggestions for which apps to use and how to digitise work. Nicely presented and easy to follow. Also does a good job talking about the 'why' of ePortfolios. This is the part I find some of my teachers struggle with.

Since we know visuals are important to many learners, take the time to check this out and to share it with your students. Also remember that many search techniques that work with Google also work with other search engines.

Chris Carter's comment, July 10, 2014 11:36 AM
Humility makes sense. Socrates knew that he was ignorant, and therefor was ready to learn. If I think that I already know a thing, or do not need to know a thing, then my mind is closed to it. All learning starts from a point of ignorance, and then move to greater approximations of understanding until mastery.
Srimayee Dam's comment, July 10, 2014 11:43 AM
Absolutely! Most are unable to do so, unwilling to learn .. Being ignorant is fine, but lack of humility won't ever help

How do you explain to students and parents the Common Core standards? If this question is difficult to answer you should check out this post. There are two tools that you may find helpful.

The image above shows six classroom scenes showing 21st century skills that students are developing on the left side. The right side shows that paths that students may take based on their skills.

There is also a second visual that is designed for teachers. It is an evidence sheet. You may take the sheet and complete two sections. The left side shows what the standards look like in your classroom, and the right side will  allow you to share how the skills will help your students succeed in college and career.

You can download both these tools as pdf files.

.However, this year, it's taken a different approach. The insightful group of educators (including my boss, Rob Mancabelli) guiding the report decided that the two fast trends for teaching and learning with technology are strongly focused onPEDAGOGY. .Specifically, the two fast trends are cited in the report as follows:Rethinking the roles of teachersShift to deeper learning approachesIn short, the changes that are happening this year specifically relate to the way we teach and the way we learn.

This is an ongoing discussion between my English Teacher friend and I.  I think the real question is why are we still teaching keyboarding??

Allan Shaw's curator insight, June 13, 2014 1:21 AM

It is becoming clearer that it is important that we do not lose  handwriting as a skill! Strong positive neural development in a child is far more important than adeptness in using digital technologies. If research continues to support these initial studies many educators will need to reflect and possibly readjust.

Sharla Shults's curator insight, June 16, 2014 2:57 PM

New evidence suggests that the links between handwriting and broader educational development run deep. Children not only learn to read more quickly when they first learn to write by hand, but they also remain better able to generate ideas and retain information. In other words, it’s not just what we write that matters — but how.
