Student Work – Portfolios of Learning

Student Work – Portfolios of Learning | iEduc | Scoop.it

Dr Alec Couros (University of Regina) shares some of the best examples of student work from the ECMP 355 (Technology in Education) undergraduate course he teaches. Each example reflects the student's final course PROJECT, the goals of which varied from either "Build a Learning Resource" or "Learn something new using the Internet" type.

 

A range of different types of PORTFOLIOS of LEARNING are shared in this post and are well worth exploring as they beautifully illustrate the creative and personal ways in which the students demonstrated their learning of the course.

 

These include "Summaries of Learning" in a variety of formats:

*Series of blog posts 

*Screencasts

*Videos and vlogs

*Blogfolios

*Animations

* Wikis

 

The design of this learning activity allowed for personalisation in format choice and made provision for the students to progessively document their learning over the duration of the course, as far as I can ascertain. I would be interested to understand what his exact brief was to the students and what rubric(s) he used to assess these projects, if at all. 

 

PS I had a conversation  with @courosa yesterday on Twitter to explore his approach to assessing his students' "Portfolios of Learning". His response was interesting:

"Assessment was customised to each student based on some general indicators (e.g., quality of artifact) with bulk focused on growth. I tend not to use rubrics and try to keep assessment consultative & personlised. Takes more time, but I think it's more accurate."

How Big is Digital Education in the United States? An End of Year Review | iEduc | Scoop.it
Buzz about the potential of digital learning abounds. Despite the excitement, relatively little is known about how many students are actually taking advantage of digital learning opportunities. This is partly due to online learning tools having numerous forms, rendering them difficult to track. In addition, policies also vary greatly across states. A new report, Keeping Pace with K-12 Digital Learning, helps to shed light on the state of online learning in the United States.

Ways to Use Video Conferencing in the Classroom - Teachers With Apps | iEduc | Scoop.it
Video conferencing is a wonderful technology that has helped change the way both business and personal communication is conducted. It not only provides a more personal, intimate way to communicate compared to a phone call, but thanks to additional services like document sharing and multi-point capabilities, the technology is by far the most effective and productive way to conduct important meetings outside of actually being face-to-face.
