Digital Student Portfolios is a carefully researched book, a pleasure to read and continually reference, and an outstanding example of how effective technology use can deepen teaching and learning.

Summary from Goodreads:
At principal Matt Renwick’s K-5 elementary school, digital portfolios are comprehensive collections of student work that teachers and their students curate and reflect upon on a regular basis. Produced using highly flexible software, the portfolios are “receptacles for learning from the past, reflections on our current capacities, and goal-setting resources for the future.”
In Digital Student Portfolios: A Whole School Approach to Connected Learning and Continuous Assessment, Renwick recounts the journey that he and his faculty are taking to overcome the limitations of report cards, permanent records and paper student folders and create a dynamic 21st century approach to chronicling student growth.
Renwick’s narrative, fully supported by research and enriched with many examples of practice within his school, will appeal to school and teacher leaders across the grade levels who have an interest in the formative and summative power of web-based, multimedia student portfolios.
