Electronic Portfolios with Digication

Last week's topic of the week was how to make an electronic portfolio with Digication. The art department at the high school is already using it and they have some great examples of what can be done. I finally put together my webinar on how to use it with your students, which you can see below. I will also post it over on my "Guides & Tutorials" website at this page so you can reference it later.

Let me know how you make out with it and what your thoughts are! I know some of the middle school 6th grade teachers are excited at the prospect of making a portfolio that would start with them and go all the way through graduation. Sounds like an awesome way to have the students reflect and realize that they actually did learn something and that school was not a waste.

If you are like me, you spent countless hours when you were young building with legos . If you were a parent of kids like me, you spent countless hours vacuuming up those little pieces or hunting for them with your bare feet in the middle of the night (ouch!). When I heard about Build with Chrome yesterday, you can understand why my eyes lit up. What is Build with Chrome? It's this:
