Using Media Arts to Promote Student Ownership of Student Digital Portfolios

Christa McAuliffe Technology Conference, 2016

Christa McAuliffe Technology Conference, 2015

NHSTE Tech Teacher SIG  STEAM Ahead! Conference, Thursday, April 13, 2017



This workshop is designed to be an open forum for conversation and discussion around the development and assessment of the K-8 ICT Literacy student portfolios with an emphasis on problem solving strategies to integrate both technology and media arts into the development of the student digital portfolio in meaningful and non-intrusive ways. Discussion points will include how to make the digital portfolio process more engaging and empowering for students; what is media arts, and what are some ways to incorporate media arts into the development of the portfolio; what resources are available to assist with the set-up and design of digital portfolios; and how can the arts, particularly media arts, become valuable content for student portfolios.  Student portfolio development can be a powerful tool to support personalized, performance-based learning and promote student voice and ownership of learning world class knowledge and skills. Incorporating the media arts into student portfolio development can provide anytime/anywhere learning opportunities.  Whether you are a K-8 classroom or content specialist teacher, technology integrator, or provide technology support, this experience will help you understand how to develop and improve the learning experiences of your students through the digital portfolio process. Resources to help districts who struggle with how to implement the ICT digital portfolio requirement will be available along with information on the ICT literacy Standards and the Core Arts Standards/Arts Model Competencies. You are encouraged to bring a laptop with wireless connectivity to access online resources, but it is not a requirement for participation.
