The Web as a notebook, or Portfolio

Wow, what a concept. Think of the mess I, and many others have. Organization, where to put things, how to prepare for conferences, where to put all of our files. I personally have 25 students, and 25 manila folders for each individual student’s that include artifacts from the year to prepare to show their progress for me, administration, and their parents. I imagine a parent conference going on a smart board, and being run by a computer, smartboard, and talking. Instead of parents having to listen about their student for 20 minutes, and flying through a report card, and papers while talking, just pull it up on the computer.  Each student could have a username, and password given to the students, parents, teachers, and parent/guardians. They could check the website any time to see their children’s work.
