Taming Multi-Modalities for Online and Classroom Use in Portfolio Writing to Increase Student Engagement Across the Curriculum

Salsi and Colley inject creativity and digital technologies into their classrooms, while encouraging student involvement. Their portfolio upgrades offer assistance to students who struggle to analyze and interpret required readings. Their techniques are interactive and help stimulate students’ rhetorical thinking via Twitter, blogging, documentary, video creation, podcasting, digital narrative projects, and use of applications such as TodaysMeet. The presenters go beyond PowerPoint in examining useful modalities that easily integrate into writing projects, including portfolio building.
