Tools for Documenting and Making Learning Visible

This section includes three types of learning tools: documentation tools, protocols, and technical help.

Documentation Tools is designed to help you understand the varied purposes and distinctive features of documentation and different ways to go about developing and presenting meaningful documentation in and outside the classroom.

Protocols offers a set of protocols for creating and looking at documentation, including how to develop a question to guide your documentation and ways to discuss and critique documentation at different points in the process. It also provides a short description of similarities and differences between documentation and the "Looking at Student Work" movement.

Technical Help offers more specific factors to consider as you engage in some of the visual languages of documentation: photography, graphic design, and the creation of documentation for more public display.
