MIDTERM ASSIGNMENT Part 1
PROJECT: DIGITAL MEDIA ASSIGNMENT
DUE: Dec 3
Points: 15 % of total grade.
Technology is allowing students to express themselves in ways never imagined. One way to get students to think about the learning process is to have them create portfolios, which not only lets them exhibit their understanding of deep content for others to see, but also encourages them to reflect on their own progress and growth over time.
Digital portfolios are gaining ground. They can be edited continuously, and they are easier than ever to create and maintain. Google Sites can get students started with building electronic portfolios. It’s free to anyone with a Google account, and the built-in tools make it easy for students to use content directly from their Google Drive with just a click of a button.
Today, many students are using multimedia such as Facebook, Twitter, and texting—all informal settings. The electronic portfolio, on the other hand, is a more formal setting where students must apply both their knowledge of how the web works and the message they want to convey. E-portfolios promote critical thinking and support the development of technology literacy skills. Students can reflect on their work, which makes the experience of creating the e-portfolio meaningful. A student’s e-portfolio may be shared with a prospective employer or used to record the achievement of program or course specific learning outcomes.
Collecting and sharing work within an E-Portfolio can provide a powerful way to reflect on academic and career goals.

- Each student will set up an electronic portfolio which is a collection of a students’ work that can advance learning by providing a way for them to organize, archive, and display work.
