Baird - Digital Portfolios: Mindful Practices to Develop Reflection and Oracy Skills

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Digital portfolios, like Seesaw, have become popular in the classroom and rightfully so. However, many students treat digital portfolios much like their own personal Youtube channel. How can students see the value in digital portfolios and use it to help themselves learn?

With deliberate instruction, digital portfolios offer students the ability to practice and develop a plethora of skills needed to be engaged citizens of the world. This session will focus on fostering reflection and increasing oral dexterity, which must be deliberately taught and nurtured. By implementing mindful practices that scaffold skills, students will become professionals in creating and curating content.
