Our Last Badge at CTE (stay tuned for the last badge from LT next week!)
Nicky Fryman (Educational Practice) at CTE earned her badge for creativity. Her students created online portfolios using various web site creators. A solid rubric defined the expectations for the contents of their portfolios, but students had choice when it came to their design and which web builder tool was used.
Example 1 (created with Wix)
Example 2 (created with Weebly)
You know how you can take a google document and give your kids a link that will "force" them to make their own copy of it by editing the URL? No? Well you can. And with this extension you can do that in one click.
It will also give you a link to the document as a pdf, as a template or the link to the preview of the document. Pretty cool!
Also, just FYI- Austin College Cart is currently out of commission. It needs a grounding plug and is a fire hazard at the moment.
