Welcome to Modern Educator
Here on this blog I hope to get a conversation going amongst students, teachers, administrators, and parents about who, what, when, why, and where we should teach technology skills for the 21st century. I am technology teacher at Truckee High School in Truckee, CA and currently teach classes like digital media, e-learning, applications, and keyboarding -- yes...still important! :) Please Join the Conversation!

From a blog post I wrote for the Wolverine Pride Blog - http://truckeepride.blogspot.com/2011/05/designing-eportfolio-assignment.html
Students in my Web 2.0 Class develop ePortfolios to demonstrate and reflect on not only their learning in my class, but in life. They will each leave my class with a tool that they can continue to update so that they can not only reflect on their learning and successes but share them with others. Think college admissions, perspective employers, or future class or work projects.
Here is a resource article from the Learning Objects Community to help teachers think about how they can use ePortfolios in their work with students.Designing an ePortfolio Assignment
