How do we view assessment and the feedback loop? How do we create an environment that supports self-regulated learning? How do we capture learning and make it visible with the intention of reflection? How do we develop a culture of thinking? How do we connect with and develop partners in dialogue? These are only the starting points of this journey.
Started as a pilot in May 2015 and quickly expanded to 17 classes (500 students), blogfolios continue with a focus on deepening the dialogue and journey of reflection, assessment and learning. (Currently there are 4000 blogfolios across elementary and secondary – and counting…)
Each session is documented in the subpages. Here are the direct links:
