Digital Badges: credentialing the things that make us fully human

iLearn Technology

Student Reflection with Digital Portfolios

Teacher Reboot Camp

Included in the Digital Ideas Advent Calendar with a new idea each day! A year ago, I created a technology course on Moodle for Spanish teachers as part of the Ministry of Education of Spain. The course will soon be over so I am grading their reflective eportfolio final projects. I look forward to grading their reflective eportfolios, because this is when my students begin to look back at their learning journey and see how much they’ve grown.
