Are you in the dilemma of keeping your students spiral bound Interactive Notebook and replacing it with a Digital Portfolio? Do you feel that the students need a change? Do you, as an educator need a change?
Are you ready to try something new and shift into the Digital Age?
Technology is a great tool to help express students voice, personality, and classwork. Through the use of “New” Google Sites, students have the ability to create a user-friendly Digital Portfolio, with ease.
Within my classroom, students create meaningful work through various Google Applications: Google Docs, Google Slides, Google Charts, YouTube etc. By creating a Digital Portfolio it allows the students to organize their work in a simple visual display for me to view, as well as, an online audience.
Here is a tutorial on how to navigate through the “New” Google Sites.
Within the tutorial is a way to collect students URLs to their newly made Digital Portfolio. Through the use of Google Forms, there is a quick way to gather data, so you can easily view students portfolios.
