Digital Portfolios: Free Webinar by Kathy Cassidy (@kathycassidy)

There is a free webinar on digital portfolios tomorrow night at 6 P.M. CST. It is facilitated by a 1st grade teacher, Kathy Cassidy. Her students create digital portfolios through blogging. She is not tool-specific. Kathy speaks more about the importance of the students doing the work, and the impact that this type of formative assessment can have on student learning and parent communication. I have read her new book and wrote a post about it here. It is excellent. Her work is geared toward K-3, but very applicable to all grade levels and areas. I have encouraged my entire staff to participate in this webinar. You should too!
