The 21st Century Skills and ePortfolio initiative is focused on encouraging teachers to incorporate 21st Century Skills into their teaching. The 21st Century Skills model we are using is based on model developed by the Partnership for 21st Century Skills. www.p21.org
We are developing an ePortfolio system that students will use to capture works that represent their application of 21st Century Skills. The ePortfolio system is currently being piloted by a group of teachers at all levels of the District. We anticipate that all students will begin using the ePortfolio in the 2011-12 school year. All teachers will have the opportunity to participate in a staff development program about 21st Century Skills, and to use the ePortfolio system with their students.
When students submit an item to the ePortfolio they attach one or more of the SCASD 21st Century Skills to the item. For each skill, they also attach a written or recorded audio reflection about how the 21st Century Skill relates to the item. Two reports that show the reflection prompts by grade and by skill are available by clicking links in the left column of this page.
Teachers will be able to access their students' ePortfolios. Parents will also be able to access their child's ePortfolio through the District Online Portal.
