Over the last few months, I have been working to help my sixth grade students to create digital portfolios where they can do some deep reflection about their own learning. The challenge has been that my students aren't completely sure about what "deep reflection" can look like in action. The result: The posts that they are writing and the ideas that they are sharing aren't super complex.
To address this, I've created a set of "17 Digital Portfolio Challenges." Each challenge is designed to (1). encourage reflective behaviors and (2). introduce students to new ideas about the kinds of content that they can include in their portfolios. My plan is to share a new challenge with participating students each week. Over time, I am hoping that the kinds of reflective behaviors encouraged in the challenges will become second nature to my students.
