We are pleased to introduce our latest guest bloggers, Karen Dietrich and Stacy McBain, who are members of our Loudoun County Public Schools Assistive Technology team. Check out their posting on What are Digital Portfolios and How Can We Use Them (More Effectively)? Their links include their presentation that describes how educators can create digital portfolios to document their students' progress, and quick tutorials on tools and resources to help create the portfolios. These tools have been very helpful to our LCPS educators!

Here are their bios:
