How to Make a Student Portfolio (on Edmodo) and Differentiate the Instruction

Hello, my dear colleagues! Have you ever wanted to make a student portfolio?
This post is the first of many short posts which will feature an interactive video tutorial or a methodological video. Less is more, and in this busy time sometimes it is much easier to watch a 5-minute video than to have a very long read.

What is the purpose of a student portfolio and how can you make one?

Student portfolios are used to collect all of their work and there may be many different reasons why a teacher wants to create a student portfolio. A student portfolio is a compilation of academic work and other forms of educational evidence assembled for the purpose of:

  • Evaluating coursework quality, learning progress, and academic achievement;
  • Determining whether students have met learning standards or other academic requirements for courses, grade-level promotion, and graduation;
  • Helping students reflect on their academic goals and progress as learners; and
  • Creating a lasting archive of academic work products, accomplishments, and other documentation. 

When it comes to my own organization, student portfolios have helped me collect all of our lesson materials since I teach many students all around the world. This way I can also see what were some difficulties, what is our next step, and what we did in the last lesson, because let’s face it, WE TEACHERS TEND TO FORGET STUFF. 🤣

Explore the video below and let me know in the comments or via the contact page if you ever differentiated the instruction by using portfolios. Do you know how to make student portfolios? Also, let me know what do you think about student portfolios and how do you use them in your classroom?
