I think that many of you have actually covered elements of Porfolios… but what are portfolios? They’re just a collection of works, and any tool can be used to collect your work; from the traditional “Ring Files” with printed paper, to the online environment. Today I have come across this article which I thought would be well worth sharing with you.
There are number of online tools which are used to share documents and presentations. One such tool is called Scribd. You can even log in with your Facebook account so you don’t really need to create another account if you do not want to. Well Scribd has a new feature in which you can add a public collection and users can add their documents to this public collection. Imagine what this can do for your classroom? I mean, we’re talking about extending the learning away from the classroom – this tool will be great to use, easy to use and I think that the effects would be fantastic. Read more on this blog, and watch a video about how this can be done. The tools are all out there, it just takes a little effort to go out and find them.
