Digital Portfolios


Why Portfolios?

GUHSD Student Portfolios - Schoology (1).pdf

Digital portfolios are the modern version of the student portfolio that has traditionally been in a folder or binder. A digital portfolio provides students with the opportunity to create, reflect, be active in their learning and demonstrate their growth over time. The power of a digital portfolio is the ability to expand the audience that can view what a student has created. This audience could include peers in their school, district or across the world, parents, business partners, colleges/universities, trade schools and potential employers.

The preferred platform for a student digital portfolio in GUHSD is Schoology or Google Sites. Student have access to Schoology and Google Sites through their GUHSD Google Apps for Education account.
