Using Digital Portfolios to Communicate Student Learning
The BC Curriculum is designed to provide flexibility to enable teachers to innovate and personalize learning. Classroom instruction and assessment practices have changed alongside this and are driven by the development of Core and Curricular Competencies in students. The lens of the curriculum is strength-based. It is rooted in the development of competencies and skills and focuses on: where students are, what they can do, and where they could be. Assessment of all forms needs to support this more flexible, personalized approach to learning and be able to measure deeper complex thinking. Digital portfolios can assist students and teachers with documenting different forms of evidence to triangulate proficiency and measure growth.
