The challenge: After our district went 1:1 over two years ago, we noticed that students were struggling with maintaining organization in their digital workspace.
The solution: Children of the 80's and avid users of Mead's Trapper Keepers, Suzanne Crowley and Jennifer Fischer, turned to Google Sites to create a digital equivalent of their favorite childhood school supply, and the DigiKeeper was born. The DigiKeeper has proven to be a unique tool for helping to improve students' digital organization as well as provide them with a unique way of expressing who they are through a digital portfolio.
Objective: Participants will be able to leverage the transformational power of the new Google Sites to guide their students in creating DigiKeepers: digital portfolios designed to increase organization, empower learners, and build independence.
Instructional Tools: A Hyperdoc and student-created examples will be used to facilitate the session.
Evidence of Success: Please see the following FlipGrid videos for firsthand student testimonials: https://flipgrid.com/38a8d3
