Open Portfolios: Capturing Voice, Process, Design, and Learning

As the education system makes steps forward in rethinking our outmoded ways of assessing learning, portfolios stand out as the strong option for providing real evidence of learning. More than that, they allow for youth voice to shine through. Whether portfolios serve as a true alternative to grades and test scores or as a supplement, they have caught traction and promise to serve as a means to broaden access for all learners to new college and career opportunities. And just as importantly, they reflect back one’s learning and growth.

Join Maker Ed's workshop session on open portfolios and engage in an opportunity to make, capture, and document. Consider how these experiences translate to the classroom, integrate with new and existing multimedia tools, and form the foundation of portfolio practices across the board. The workshop will include discussion around facilitation and offer up examples of what youth portfolios can look like. Learn more about our ongoing research as part of the Open Portfolio Project, in collaboration with Indiana University’s Creativity Labs, and together, we’ll design strategies for how youth can best showcase their learning.
