“How you climb a mountain is more important than reaching the top.” – Yvon Chouinard
Many free curation and aggregation tools and apps, like Educlipper, Pinterest, and Livebinders, help students to quickly and easily create their portfolios and keep them throughout their learning journey. I also love Google Apps and Weebly for creating impressive portfolios. Check out my Weebly portfolio at ShellyTerrell.com as an example. For my courses, my students use these curation tools to build their eportfolios. Find examples of my students’ Pinterest portfolios and how I set up the project and assessed it in the presentation below. You will also learn about their final projects culminating the knowledge they gathered from their portfolios. Students create a reflective audio/visual presentation, in which they reflect on a task, reading, and resource (tool, app, website, game, database, video or program) for each module. Their presentations include screenshots, links, and examples. Students are asked to describe what they learned from the resources and explain how they will specifically apply this knowledge in the real world. Keep scrolling for bookmarks with more ideas.
