Best Practices for Sharing Student Work?

Question:

Hi all -

I'm wondering what practices you've found to be most helpful for sharing student work?

Our kids put together some amazing projects -- documentaries with iMovie, podcasts with GarageBand, occasionally some even crazier stuff with FinalCut -- but sometimes it feels like we're restricted by the way we choose to share that work out. (A document with hyperlinks "works," but it doesn't always do the projects justice / truly fulfill the need of the project.)

A few unique examples that have worked on specific project types in the past:

  • Creating QR codes to student projects and plastering them wherever appropriate. (These could be lawn signs, if they're documentaries about things that exist around the community... plaques if they're tutorials about wildlife in the area or "stuff" around the school... stickers stuck to the inside of library books linking to student reviews made in iMovie... etc.)
  • We've recently adopted Canvas as our LMS. Using their Discussion forum to make student videos easily accessible to all students in the class... while giving students the option to view and comment on their peers' work... is great. We were accomplishing something similar with FlipGrid, too. Helps to give the work they do in iMovie and GarageBand additional layers -- (1) peer feedback, support, evaluation... (2) authentic audience... and so on.

What has worked best for you?

Another great time to pull out the QR codes is any sort of "Fine Arts Night" where families come after school to see student paintings, sketches, sculptures, etc.

It also adds another level of creativity for the students to design an attractive looking QR code or a frame to display it in.
