The Google Infused Classroom - Curation and Reflection using Digital Portfolios

Session Description

Reflection is what we do during and at the end of a unit to think critically about the learning process. It is a time set aside to contemplate what we learned, how we learned and where we might connect it to the real world. In this session, we will examine how to implement process- oriented digital portfolios that promote self-assessment and reflection for students as they learn. Explore the best Google infused tools available and how to easily setup your classroom digital workflow when using digital portfolios.
