Allowing Comments on Pages – Important!

It is important that you modify your pages to allow comments in order to receive feedback on your assignments for Digital Literacy 10 and in other classes.  You must enable comments for every new page that you create.

The procedure for enabling comments is very simple and is detailed in the steps below.  Click the images to make them larger.

Even if you have already submitted your work you can go back and complete this step in order to receive feedback and have your assignments marked.

Reflecting On Your Learning

An important part of learning is to reflect on what you have learned. You are all familiar with the Core Competencies from Middle School.  For each assignment you add to your portfolio, you should be writing a reflection paragraph on how the assignment demonstrates the Core Competencies.

The document below gives instructions on developing your own questions and responses for your reflection paragraph. Your reflections may touch on a few competencies or may only focus on one area of development and growth.
