Student web sites create virtual portfolios

Posted in classroom web site, student web sites, Web 2.0 by Mark Barnes on January 24, 2010

A good classroom web site will give the teacher the ability to create individual, private student web sites, contained within the teacher’s online Content Management System. Here is a model student web site.

What you see is a little autonomy (the student adds a picture of his choosing) and several links to actual class work. The student web site is similar to the classroom web site. It contains content, links and graphics.

Best of all, the student web site is a virtual portfolio. Every time the student saves any page, a new version is created. This allows the teacher and the student to see how the page has evolved over time.

Now that’s what I call the power of the Internet.
