Reflective Teaching Day 20 – Curating work

Day 20 – @TeachThough  30 Day Reflective Teaching Challenge  

How do you curate student work–or help them do it themselves?

 This is a great question, that I have just begun to think about seriously and how it fits into my instruction. Students should have a learning portfolio of artifacts that show their learning. This can be done digitally or in folders. Ideally I would have students create a blog to keep their BEST work on. I currently don’t have access to technology enough to be effective in this manner. I currently have students keep their projects in folders through out the school year. We have this resource at the end of year to look back at our learning. Now I am beginning to realize that these learning artifacts need to move on with students. Students need to have a record of learning from K-12 that is more than the grades and comments found in the CA60 folders. I need to do a better job curating my students work.
