Loved this webinar! I learned so much and got so many new ideas for my site. I will definitely look for more webinars by Lauren Boucher - great teacher.

I like organizing the discussion around four modes of interaction: student to content, student to teacher, student to student, and student to self. Lots of useful sites mentioned, like PollEverywhere, AnswerGarden, DotStorming, and BlendSpace.
[Rather than "portfolio," I prefer to refer to a "sharing site" or "sharing pages." Sharing is easier to understand than portfolio, and it keeps the publication purpose at the forefront of student minds as they add and edit their pages.]

I'm always looking for new ways to consolidate student portfolios.
