B.C. report cards enter the age of social media

B.C. report cards enter the age of social media | Leadership to change our schools' cultures for the 21st Century | Scoop.it
Imagine students in Grade 4 videotaping each other as they give presentations about Greek gods in small groups. Once the presentation is complete, each student uploads their video to an online student portfolio, where their parents and their teacher can see it. Later, the teacher can grade the presentation on that same website, matching it to pre-programmed learning outcomes and leaving a meaningful comment. After it’s graded, the same website automatically sends the student’s grade to an online grade book, which, with the touch of a button becomes a report card that amalgamates all grades from other assignments and is automatically sent home via email.
