We know that hands-on, production-centered learning can lead to some amazingly deep learning experiences. But capturing and displaying what you’re learning & creating as a maker has not always been easy.

Tuesday June 24 from 10-11am PT (1-2pm ET), we discussed how/why the +Maker Education Initiative is developing a common set of practices for an open, decentralized, and distributed lifetime portfolio system for makers.

This webinar was part of a June series called “Looking Closely at Student Work in the Digital Age.” Check out all the details at http://bit.ly/lookingclosely
