Supporting research

“When students compose e-portfolios…. they build the architecture of their ideas and make decisions about how they want to represent them hierarchically. Students make connections across various assignments and courses and, more importantly, decide how those connections ought to be displayed.

Content Curation

Multiple studies from researchers at the University of South Florida and the University of Southern California have shown that students in less affluent, underserved-communities use technology for remediation and drill-and-practice rather than research, connecting with individuals outside of school, creating new artifacts of learning, and computational thinking.
