The importance of showcasing process
Posted September 8, 2016on:
If the product (the visual effects in the movie, The Force Awakens) was impressive, what more the insights into the processes (hints at how the product came to be).
If the product of supposed learning (the grades after an exam) are impressive, what more are the insights into the processes of learning (cognition, metacognition, environmental support, enabling strategies and instruments, etc.).
The movie industry knows how important it is to record and showcase what happens behind-the-scenes. How about schools? Why are learner owned and managed e-portfolios not more common?
What excuses are you going to give to stand in the way of today’s learners and more authentic learning?
