Could be worth investigating this tool for e-portefolio

Lisa Cooper's curator insight, July 16, 2013 3:33 PM

This looks like a great way for my students to find information about careers that are of interest to them.

Tamra Dollar's curator insight, July 19, 2013 5:35 PM

I also like that the ePortfolio can follow the student and allows each teacher to see prior work writing samples to get an authentic look at where the student is performing. It is a built in "needs assessment!"

"It is time to hear from students!

 

Ann Michaelsen, a High School English teacher from Oslo, Norway did precisely that. She gave her students a voice, the time to research, write and platform to share THEIR perspective. What does it mean to be a connected learner as a student?"

They also cover the proficiency strands (PS) of Understanding, Fluency, Problem Solving and Reasoning."

A neat list of maths based apps with links to the Australian Curriculum.

Melissa Marshall's curator insight, October 20, 2014 1:54 AM

These apps are all useful for maths classrooms. Some of them are primary-school-ish, but the author has put effort into finding apps that actually build maths skills, rather than drill-and-practice apps. I particularly like the MyScript MathPad and Calculator - two apps that turn your handwriting into clear mathematical equations. 

BC's curator insight, January 24, 9:42 AM

In case you want to do some extra maths to improve your ability :)
