ePortfolios

The last two years has been a struggle for me because I've been wrestling with the balance of supporting students' needs while feeling like there is something seriously missing from the way they are evaluated.

In retrospect, the things that drove me in school were, as Daniel Pink puts it, (1) autonomy, (2) mastery, and (3) purpose. Not grades. Grades were an obstacle to overcome so I could achieve my goals, which has always been something tangible or intellectual. Something you can look at, listen to, experience, feel from. Something that changes the world because it was produced and shared.
