Ready, Set, Reflect! Student and Staff Portfolios

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

It is essential that staff and students focus more on the process of learning rather than the product if we are truly to implement the deeper learning competencies. To do this we have added time for reflection into our daily instruction and many opportunities for feedback. In this session, we will share how we are capturing staff reflections on their practice as they grow in our deeper learning work and student reflection on mastery of the academic and social standards through a digital portfolio. We have a 4K-12th grade digital portfolio site that students and staff use to reflect on the process of their learning and growth to capture over time. During the session, we will model how we create portfolio entries as well as how we have worked to get leader and teacher buy-in about the process. We will also practice using the digital portfolio to do presentations of learning. This allows students to present their work to an authentic audience on a regular basis, which gives them the opportunity to get and give feedback and to share with their caregivers what they have learned about themselves and their academics. We will share student and staff portfolio examples and the process teachers are using to plan for this level of reflection.
