After watching the video on Digital Portfolios and reading the article Why Use a Digital Portfolio - and 9 Ways to do it, I am convinced that I should use one in my Computer Application course this school year. I think a digital portfolio would work in all my classes but I want to be realistic and try it in one first. If I tried using digital portfolios in all my classes, I think that I would be overwhelmed! In the article, the author, Jacqui Murray, mentions Wikis, Google apps, Flipboard, Symbaloo, Evernote, Flipboard, live binders, websites/blogs as methods for digital portfolios. In particular, the video, showed how to implement Wikis and websites/blogs as digital portfolios.
I like the layout of the Wiki especially if it can be organized into projects as Jacqui showed. I still have a few questions about a Wiki. What does the student page look like? Do they upload the project on the teacher page under project? Or do they upload the project on their Wiki page? Could digital rubrics be attached to the projects in a Wiki? If not, digital rubrics could be emailed. I think a Wiki would work best for me and I need to think about to implement it this year.
