A Digital Portfolio (Pilot) Discussion: why would students maintain a reflective portfolio, how would this work, how would we convince others to join in?
During each of the six breakout sessions throughout the weekend, a large number of conversations will take place. This site will help you organize your plan for the weekend and provide the relevant information for each conversation. After signing in, search through the conversations below and mark the sessions you are interested in to populate your personal schedule on the right (or below if on your mobile phone).
The conversation aims to highlight how the physical space of a school/classroom, innovative pedagogy, as well as emerging technologies can be combined to offer a more authentic learning experience for students, and lead to a deeper understanding and development of 21st century skills.

How does this style of teaching and learning differ in universities compared to K-12? What's easier or harder for the student, teacher, learning institution, etc?
