Summer Institute in Digital Literacy
at the University of Rhode Island, July 14-19, 2013
Web portfolios turn individual student-centered learning into a collaborative class learning experience expressed in exciting, sharable digital format. The synergies of a class full of web portfolios yield a whole picture that reverberates beyond any single student’s achievement.
The Session demonstrates how to turn students into “instant webmasters” of their own creative and informative web portfolios. Teachers at all levels can quickly and easily integrate digital literacy into their instructional pedagogy--while keeping the learning focus on subject matter content.
Participants in this Hot Topics session will use Jimdo.com to quickly create their own web portfolios designed to integrate information, resources, links, reflections, activities and practice projects learned throughout the Summer Institute in Digital Literacy.
Jimdo.com is the easiest, most intuitive, flexible, and free website creator that I have found to date, but if you'd prefer to use another web creator that you already know, feel free.
When linked to this collaborative website, participants' sites will serve as a portal for engaging other instructors and students in this dynamic learning experience.
