Student Led Conferences

Are you interested in having students organize their work for the student led conferences? The idea is to use a simple Google Doc template to organize and encapsulate student work.

Option 1 Having students organize their work from your specific class. Here is an example from an iLearn student. template
Option 2 A more comprehensive idea is to have each student organize all work from all classes in one place- in essence having a Grade 5/6 portfolio. Here is a rough simple template.
1. Why do it with a Google Doc?
a. students have permanent digital record of work
b. looks great
c. everything in one place
d. students are familiar with Docs
2. The work in my class is all done on paper! How can this work with Docs?
Have students select “x” pieces of work. a) Have them scanned at the Photocopy office. More to your resources for students. b) take pictures of work and share.
3. I don’t know how to set it up. /It takes too  much time. /I don’t feel confident setting it up. There is little teacher set up involved. The students are the ones compiling and reflecting. The template can be modified for your class. Only one new Google skill involved.
4. I don’t have time. Again, once you finalize the template, the onus is on the student.
