I had a great question asked by Ray Tolley, wondering about the “portfolio” portion of our blogfolio project. Summarized, Ray knew that blogging alone is NOT a portfolio, and there needed to be more evidence of learning. Ray also asked how we would address all of this student work being done at our school being continued after a student leaves. I created this short video to help explain this project further in depth.
What a whirlwind weekend at the Reform Symposium! It was so nice to be able to hear from so many people that I have connected with over the last few months on Twitter. The sharing of ideas was phenomenal. I tried to connect to as many sessions as possible but am planning to catch up through the archives.
My presentation was also archived and I wanted to thank everyone for coming and watching. I really appreciated it. It was something new for me and I was VERY nervous but am happy with how it turned out. This presentation was not possible without the amazing students and staff that have at my school. I was so glad that I had the chance to brag about their accomplishments as a school. I am truly blessed to work with the people that I do.
Here is the session if you are interested in watching (It starts about 17 minutes in after I request throwing my brother out of the session).
