Photo, video, audio integration ideas

Using  photo, video, and audio to record this otherwise hard to document learning is the super power of your portfolio and it allows you to show real life learning.

Learning is beyond books and tests, so shouldn’t your portfolio also be?

My time with my children is short. Shorter than I like to think about, really. The longer we homeschool the more I see the blur between family life and homeschool blur. I see learning everywhere, embedded in our everyday life. I want to capture these morsels of learning and use them to motivate my children in other areas.

Here are some great ways you might catch learning at your house:

Interpersonal skills

  • Your student was caught showing extra kindness in play with a sibling or neighbor
  • Your child visits an elderly neighbor and is learning to respect adults so you video them talking
  • You interview your child about qualities of a good friend

Responsibility

  • Your child has mastered a new chore that helps keep the house running smoothly
  • Your child is making choices about how to use his allowance

Reading

  • You caught your child reading for fun and record the moment with a quick photo
  • Reading fluency- use audio or video record your child’s reading fluency

Bible

  • You capture and audio clip of your child’s new memory verse and let them explain in their own words what it means

Physical Development

  • Your child has learned to swim, ride a bike, or other big accomplishment

Organized Sports

  • Your child is learning sportsmanship and teamwork
  • Your child has learned to throw, catch, hit, or shoot the ball with good form

Cooking and Math
