Tony Wagner (Harvard University, author of books about innovations in education) put it simply: The world doesn't care about what students know. It wants to see what students have done with what they have learned.Students at High Tech High put their work on display. Your school could do better: Add links to video presentations by your students explaining their work. I want to hear the students at High Tech High describing the process that they went through. Their portfolios are flat, two-dimensional, and static. Even the best digital portfolios simply sit there on the screen, waiting to be read. Why not add a video link so that future employers and college admission officers can hear the voices of your students? Why not "one-up" the High Tech High standard for Digital Portfolios?We look forward to searching your school's website and finding a link to Digital PortfoliosWe want to see what your teachers and students do with this idea.
