Digital Portfolio

Digital Portfolio: Archival and Curation of Works Produced by Students in Classroom


  • Objectives of the Demonstration of Digital Portfolio: 
The Students are strongly encouraged to build digital portfolio to document the four habits of mind:
·        1. Integrative thinking: The ability and habit to recognize relationships among ideas and experiences that are not routinely thought of as related.
·        2. Reflective thinking: The ability and habit of looking back at previous learning and setting those experiences in a new context created by subsequent learning.
·        3. Thinking in Community: The ability and habit of seeking connections between your learning and the learning of others in the class / community.
·       4.  Thinking in context:  The ability and habit of seeking connections between what you learned in college and relating those connections to subjects, debate and discussion in the wider world. (Lorenzo and Ittelson) 


·          It is imperative that in 2015, students be able to curate, archive and expand on the work they are producing in class
•Today’s education must help students authentically learn important digital citizenship lessons.  
  • Education must students to internalize the core subject as well as vital digital literacy skills such as creating their own digital web presence and learning to effectively and purposefully share their learning with the world

  • Apart from these learning objectives, it is necessary to see that Indian languages grow its presence on internet. If our students create their web presence by publishing the works produced in the classroom, it will help in having significant web presence of our languages, our universities and along with it, it will support the national campaign on Digital India. If more students from regional languages departments are motivated, we can achieve this objective.
