    More than a decade into the 21st century, teachers continue to struggle with designing digital assignments as a viable tool for learning and with assessing the demonstration of that learning through student-created products. Digital tools continue to be used primarily for consumption of available resources rather than in the creation of something new. This publication explores what types of assignments are worth engaging online, how teachers and students can leverage global interactions to improve their work, and how teachers can assess digital projects and other work. Along the way, Fisher offers practical advice on rigour and relevance, digital citizenship, formative assessment and digital portfolios.
