Where to Begin How do individual campuses begin? http://goo.gl/ICsGjx 39. Tips for ePortfolio Success TIP #1 STUDENTS HAVE TO UNDERSTAND THE STANDARDS Arrange the portfolio by standard and/or expectations of what the student needs to know and be able to do. In order to "pass" the student needs to understand what they need to demonstrate Students then need to connect their artifacts to the standards 40. Tips for ePortfolio Success TIP #2 STUDENTS NEED TO UNDERSTAND WHAT IT MEANS TO REFLECT Need to move beyond just the commentary that they are use to through Facebook, Texting, etc. Consider oral reflections (video...) What went well? What was challenging? Most Proud of? Establish a "goal" for next time Consider/Develop a method for achieving that goal 41. Tips for ePortfolio Success TIP #3 STUDENTS NEED TO THINK ABOUT ADDITIONAL AUDIENCES Beyond the teacher and the classroom grade Must create a portfolio worthy projects 42. School Culture Can Change To Incorporate Student Work Essential questions a school needs to ask: VISION: What do you want a student to know and be able to do PURPOSE: How do you intend to use a student's portfolio? AUDIENCE: Who will be the primary viewers of the student's portfolio? ASSESSMENT: How do we decide what's good? TECHNOLOGY: What tools will we use? Who will support it? LOGISTICS: How do we build on what we already have? CULTURE: What else needs to change in order to effectively implement digital portfolios? 43.
