Music Student Portfolios Using Google Slides & Reflective Practices
Have you ever wanted to find out more about portfolio assessment or create innovative digital portfolios to help students demonstrate the connections between the curriculum, instruction and assessment? Do you already have a portfolio project that you want to convert into a digital portfolio? Today’s music teachers should consider how a student portfolio demonstrates growth and a continuum of learning, and it’s easy! Using a blend of free technology tools (such as Google Apps, Recap, etc.) and traditional assessment methods, this course aids K–12 teachers with researching and developing music portfolios that meet the needs of their classes. Participants will complete weekly assignments that ultimately progress into an effective portfolio that addresses specific learning outcomes.
