Thomas Suarez’s TED talk was very clear that he wanted to engage more people in making apps because he found it fun. He spoke in a clear voice and changed his tone to keep us engaged. He barely looked at his script and kept his eye contact on his audience. He also asked questions and made people laugh. By having a screen behind him he was not just able to tell you his story but show pictures to support his message. Since he was in a big hall he used a microphone to project his voice and used pauses and hand movements to keep people interested. He also used simple direct sentences to help prove his points and summarised at the end.
Overall he showed everyone that he was passionate about the topic and it’s quite clear to say all of us got his message!
Welcome to your College Digital Portfolio! A Digital Portfolio is like having your own website. It is a place for you to learn about being an active and responsible digital citizen by creating a portfolio of your best work to showcase and share with others. Through the creation of a blog, you will be able to write regular reflections and share your learning journey through photo and video with your teachers, parents, each other and possibly even experts from all around the world.
For more information and support, speak to your teacher, explore, play and learn from each other! Learn how to publish your first post by visiting Publish your First Post. After that see what you can do! Visit the Edublogs User Guide for more help developing your new online space.
There are so many ways in which to use your space, for example:
- Documenting and reflecting on your learning, passions, and interests, both in and out of school
- Curating and highlighting work for your Student-Led Conferences
- In some instances, your teachers will also ask you to submit, reflect and comment on other students work in this portfolio
That’s enough to get you going. Your Digital Portfolio should be a fun, enriching and rewarding way to explore, find or create your place in the world. Good luck!
