Tech Tip Tuesday: Digital Portfolio Template
Each year, I have my 8th grade students create a digital portfolio. The purpose is to allow them to showcase their best work while meeting the requirements of the New Jersey Technological Assessment for Proficient and Literacy NJTAPIN rubric.
The NJTAPIN rubric must be completed for all 8th grade students, to determine if they are proficient in technology literacy before entering high school. They are assessed on NJ CCCS Strands 8.1 Educational Technology and 8.2 Technology Education, Engineering, and Design.
Since there are over 300 students in 8th grade at the +William Davies Middle School, this process can be tedious and time consuming. Having the students create the digital portfolio helps me assess their work quicker and gives them a chance to reflect on their work.
The students must insert specific content into their digital portfolios. This will allow me to check just one file for specific skills, rather than searching their entire network drive for the files that contain the skills.
Here is the digital portfolio template that I have the students use.
