The Richer Picturecast highlights the potential of digital portfolios and badges for students and teachers to document and highlight powerful learning. We will also explore project-based learning and alternative forms of assessment.

How can CTE programs use digital badges to show student progress?

As CTE student enrollment continues to increase, listen to how one urban school district easily tracks each student's progress while easing the faculty's administrative challenges. Catherine Rickert, Director of the Woonsocket Area Career and Tech Center in Rhode Island, shares how they use digital badges to show student achievements, reduce teacher time and easily meet the local and state requirements. In this podcast, Catherine is joined by David Niguidula, Founder of Richer Picture, and host Bill Carozza, a Professor at Keene State University and former New Hampshire School Principal.

Sharing Portfolios with Employers, Colleges and More

Students often what to share their badges and portfolios with audiences outside of their school. In this episode, we talk about how students can set up their portfolios for this purpose. Typically, students set up a "tour" - a subset of the work they have collected - for the audience they have in mind. We'll discuss strategies for setting up tours for employers, college admissions or placement, and other audiences.

Portfolio Reviews and Rituals

As students complete their portfolios, how can they show off their accomplishments? In this episode, we discuss strategies for reviewing portfolios, from parent-teacher conferences to special end-of-year review sessions. You'll hear about how students can create "tours" of their best work and how they can demonstrate a school's vision of a graduate.

Setting Goals - and Meeting Them! - Individual Learning Plans

Individual Learning Plans (also known as Personal Learning Plans or Student Success Plans) are common in schools across the country. Students set academic, career, college and personal goals. But what if students had a better way to keep track of their progress? In this episode, host Bill Carozza and David Niguidula discuss how Richer Picture can help students, counselors, parents and advisors set better goals - and track their progress.
