Have you noticed something different about students today? They are always “fiddling” with or “clicking” things. Schools don’t have the resources, but there are opportunities to use what students already have to engage these active learners. Come learn more about the things students have access to and how to harness them in learning.
SCOE’s next STEM++ training is about Using Digital Portfolios to Enhance English Language Arts
ePortfolios provide a great opportunity for students to showcase their learning and provide authentic assessment opportunities. This session provides participants with the experience of creating one so that they understand the process and can use it with their students or a training with their staff. This session is not only for ELA teachers, but all content teachers! Wikispaces is a tool which many schools are using. Activities are aligned to Common Core Standards for ELA. Bring your own device (laptop or iPad recommended) and come ready to jump in!
