Student Authored Digital Portfolios

Isn’t this a sign of the times?

That’s the bit of information that you’ll find attached to Kathy Cassidy’s newest iBook “Student Authored Portfolios: Archiving Learning with iPad“.

In the book, Kathy takes on the issues and technical side of things as she describes how Student Portfolios work in her classroom.

It’s a relatively short read (only 17 pages) but covers the topic in a way that makes it all reachable with technology.  While the title does make reference to the iPad, the techniques are certainly not restricted to that one piece of technology.

So often, there are blocks to successful implementation.  Kathy takes these on up front explaining how it works for her.

  • safety
  • tools
  • platform choice
  • photos
  • video
  • audio
  • drawing

They’re all nicely addressed within the various sections.

If you’re curious about using digital portfolios with your students, looking for ways to convince yourself and others, or looking for tips about how to make it work, it’s all covered in this book.

And it’s free.  Why not download it right now and add to your personal professional library?
