Seesaw - Student Driven Digital Portoflios

Seesaw - Student Driven Digital Portoflios | technologies | Scoop.it
Seesaw - Student driven digital portfolios and simple parent communication.
For iOS, Android, Kindle Fire, Chromebooks and Computers with Chrome or
Firefox. Free for teachers!
John Dalziel's insight:
SeeSaw is a free digital 'portfolio' enabling learners to express their knowledge in different ways through written text, drawings, images, video and web links. 
SeeSaw has also just launched a new feature to share files from Google Drive! 
Here's how it works... 
► Click on the Add button and choose Add File. 
► Add files from Google Drive. 
Then SeeSaw converts the file into a PDF copy, which can be shared with others and annotated! 
To watch it in action look at the video from SeeSaw at https://www.youtube.com/embed/wibF6c1L1r8 ;
SeeSaw allows practitioners to see how their learners are using Google Tools to create and showcase learning without the hassle. 
Well worth a closer look!

Edusight - Notes

Edusight - Notes | technologies | Scoop.it

Edusight Notes is a mobile app that helps practitioners capture evidence of student learning as it happens throughout the year.

John Dalziel's insight:

Although developed for younger learners, EduSight Notes provides a means, for practitioners/assessors etc., to quickly capture anecdotal evidence about student learning, of all ages, in their learning environments.
EduSight Notes enables them to...
   ● take note of important behavior or character development for all their learners, and
   ● store examples of learner work to guide their assessment practice.
All notes and observations are organized by learner in a handy timeline view.
All this provides the means to reflect on learners’ progress by reviewing evidence of their learning, and application of skills etc.

Create free websites - SnackWebsites

Create free websites - SnackWebsites | technologies | Scoop.it
Create free websites, really easy! Free & easy to set up. Especially developed to work on all mobile devices. No ads.
John Dalziel's insight:

SnackWebsites Mobile Website Builder is a free to use online web service that lets users create mobile websites.
Today nearly every learner has a smartphone. And learners make full use of their smartphones by using the Internet on them.

This makes it very easy for learning providers, or individual practitioners, to quickly show their learners, their online files that are mobile-compatible.
This can be a great advantage for tutorials, distance learning etc.

Mobile sharing is also beneficial for learners that have portfolios online.
Creating online portfolios of work will not do them any good if the web service they use is not mobile-friendly.
When users start creating a website, they can select which category it falls in; covered categories include...
- personal,
- portfolio,
- community,
- blog,
- product,
- band,
- event,
...and lots more.
Users can also select a template from the various visually appealing options.
The site even gives users numerous extension options to customize the overall URL of the resulting website.
A possible addition to employability courses and/or for community courses e.g. websites for self-employed, community groups, sports clubs, the list goes on.

5 Ways to Use Google Sites in Teaching & Learning

Although this post refers to "Schools" it is a post from the USA so therefore has a different meaning than we would use in the UK.

 

I particularly like the use of the new page-level permissions options, allowing learners to only edit Google Sites pages that practitioners grant them access to.

 

The 5 ways are...

- As a wiki:

- As a digital portfolio;

- As a digital file cabinet;

- As a blog;

- As a website.

 

All skills learners need in the "real world" - potential for use in functional skills especially as learners & practitioners have 24/7 access. 

 

Google docs are also ideal for peer assessment and review.

John Dalziel's insight:
I'd like to think that we are all learning everyday, everywhere. Trov·vit's mission is to help learners at every stage of their learning - from toddler to senior citizen - to learn, save a record of their work, share their passions and grow their personal learning network (PLN). 
Trov·vit believes that... 
► creating a personal and permanent record of learning experiences is an important part of reflection and growth and 
► PLNs are critical to learning, learners should share their work and experiences with family and mentors through a private, secure feed and portfolio. 
Trov·vit provides a tool for learners, and/or practitioners, to create useful personal, reflective portfolios.
NOTE: Apps are available for iOS and Android
