Real World Connections
Goals and Objectives
Project: Electronic Portfolios
This project takes advantage of technology to give students insight
into real world situations. Published authors and illustrators utilize
portfolios to collect and exhibit their work. To help make this accessible
for second graders, they will use templates in PowerPoint to publish
their work and reflections. A Project Based Learning format will allow
students to work collaboratively as their knowledge grows. Children
will share their learning with each other, family and friends through
projects capable of publication on the world wide web. We will integrate
the real world through the following activities:
- Working with the school’s visiting author.
- Working with the visiting artist in residence from the Silicon
Valley Art Initiative.
- Presentation of projects to other classrooms.
- Presentation of projects to family, friends and the community during
Open House in May 2005.
