Abstract

Kids love an audience. Give a kid an audience and you're sure to get a show. What better audience could one have than the World Wide Web and what better way to “Show What You Know” than publishing via digital portfolios. This session will show how student success and motivation for learning has increased in one rural high school thru the use of standards-based digital portfolios. Research shows that students will need digital age proficiencies in order to thrive in a digital economy. This session will show participants how digital portfolios and 21st century skills were implemented at the high school level. Student portfolios will be shared with the audience along with the rituals and routines that make the learning successful. Presenters will discuss how students take responsibility for identifying the standards and how teacher commentary is included in the portfolio. Participants will receive handouts and quick tips for implementing the program. Assessment techniques including peer assessment, self assessment, rubrics, check lists, and Met/ Not Yet tables will be shared.
