Presenter: Sharon Pearson, Rouse Hill Public School

Co-presenter: Nerida Rylewski, Rouse Hill Public School

Type: Showcase

Duration: 60 mins

Overview: Digital student portfolios and online class learning spaces are fast becoming a valuable tool for 21st century learning. Portfolios and lessons no longer have to consist of the one-dimensional paper, workbook or print format. With the growing trend of ICT integration into the curriculum, teachers and students can now create vivid and dynamic digital portfolios and class learning spaces that engage students in moving through lessons at their own pace, showcase students skills and best reflect their learning and progress over time. Digital portfolios and class learning spaces allow media rich content including photos, videos, sketchers, documents and voice-overs to record student thinking and provide valuable evidence towards assessment. This workshop will introduce participants to an array of apps and websites useful for building digital student portfolios and class learning spaces in the classroom.

Target Audience: K-12, Teachers & Executive

Requirements: iPad with apps: Seesaw, Verso, Easy Portfolio, Weebly and FreshGrade (Teacher and Student).  Alternatively a laptop with access to the Internet.
