We used to use the old Google Sites for our ePortfolios, but, even with the current limitations, will now use the new Google Sites for our ePortfolios.
Each student shares their ePortfolio with me as an editor, so I can edit their site if necessary, or when the feature gets added, to add comments to their site.
For students that have taken classes with me before, they create a menu for each class with their assignments as sub-menus below them. For students in one of my classes only, their main menu is their list of assignments for that class.
Today in the TEJ2O Computer Technology class we’re going to be compiling a list of terms that potentially will be used in the students’ ePortfolio glossaries. You will find the Google Sheet here that we are using.
For accountability, students are asked to enter their first name and last initial. We only post the last initial because the post is publicly viewable.
Each student initially enters four terms. This may grow to five, depending on how they do.
I purposely don’t list all the potential categories because that enables some problem solving and communications amongst the students.
Update: getting students to simultaneously edit a Google Doc is always an interesting experiment. In the future, I think I will get the students to fill in a form and then we’ll dissect the results together.
(This is an old post that has been moved to here from my previous blog.)
These instructions have been written for my visiting grade 9 students. The instructions are specific to the network we use in our school board, so they might be slightly different for other students or teachers using these slides.
This site will serve as the “front end” to both my professional and personal activities, whether they be posting an update for my students, posting something on GitHub, adding a lesson, sharing a presentation I’ve done, or whatever. Posts from my old blog may get transferred to here, as well as other content from my school website. Continue reading “Welcome!”
A quick photo repair this morning. I’m not entirely satisfied with the final result, but I’m hoping the person I’m doing this for will still be happy. If my Photoshop skills were better I’m sure more could be done to improve it.
Which do you like best? The black and white, the one with the warming filter, or the one with the cooling filter?
