Student Portfolios and Accessing Student Work

At any time during the school year, Burlington students have the ability to add samples of their student work to their electronic portfolios.  Especially now at the end of the year, students and teachers are reflecting back on projects, student growth and progress, accomplishments, and achievements.  Often such milestones of learning become an entry or post to a student's electronic portfolio.

It has been my pleasure to co-teach this past week along side Miss Courtney Fallon, Pine Glen Art teacher.  Together, we have met with all of our students in grades 1 through 5 and helped them post pictures of their artwork to their student portfolios.  Here are some photos of us in class during this process.  After the photos, I have created a handout explaining the steps to access a student portfolio, via Blogger, a Google app, as well as student work saved in their Google Drive, another Google app.  Please know that grade K teachers have also created posts or entries to their students' electronic portfolios as well and can be accessed following the same handout.  Enjoy.
