E-portfolios and Google Sites

  1. 1. + Creating e-Portfolios with Google Sites Claire Amos Deputy Principal Hobsonville Point Secondary School
  2. 2. + What is an e-portfolio? An e-portfolio (electronic portfolio) is an electronic collection of evidence that shows your learning journey over time. Portfolios can relate to specific academic fields or your lifelong learning. Evidence may include writing samples, photos, videos, research projects, observations by mentors and peers, and/or reflective thinking. The key aspect of an e-portfolio is your reflection on the evidence, such as why it was chosen and what you learned from the process of developing your e-portfolio. (Adapted from Philippa Butler‟s “Review of the Literature on Portfolios and Eportfolios” (2006), page 2.)
  3. 3. + Why create a portfolio? " The overarching purpose of portfolios is to create a sense of personal ownership over one's accomplishments, because ownership engenders feelings of pride, responsibility, and dedication." (p.10) - Paris & Ayres.(1994) .
  4. 4. + Why use Google Sites? • Free • Easy • Allow for multimedia evidence • Can control who can view and edit at a page level • Can create templates for students to use.

  7. 7. + E-portfolios and 21st Century Skills
  8. 8. + Setting up an E-Portfolio  What is the purpose?  Who is audience?  Who is going to own it and control it?  Is it for one subject or a portfolio of all work?  Will you provide a template for them?
  9. 9. + Google Site Page Templates - Web Page  A web page is the simplest kind of page; you can write content, embed gadgets, and arrange it however you like.  The web page has standard formatting controls like bold, italic, and underline, bullets, and more. You can attach documents from your hard drive to the bottom of the page, and you can let other site collaborators comment on your pages.  These are great for „showcase‟ pages where students want to embed and display text, images, film or audio.
  10. 10. + Google Site Page Templates - Announcements  Much like a blog, announcement pages display posts you make to the page in chronological order, starting with the most recent. For example, an announcement page would be great for keeping a record of weekly meeting notes, while providing quick access to the most recent meeting info.  This is great for student reflections or for writing formative assessment that needs to be commented on and changed easily.
  11. 11. + Google Site Page Templates - File Cabinet  File cabinet pages let you store and organize files from your computer‟s hard drive, making it an easy way to share files with other users of your site.  Anyone subscribed to the page will be notified when files are added, changed, or removed.  This is great for keeping all summative assessments filed online
  12. 12. + E-Portfolios and Digital Citizenship A digital citizen:  is a confident and capable user of ICT uses technologies to participate in educational, cultural, and economic activities  uses and develops critical thinking skills in cyberspace  is literate in the language, symbols, and texts of digital technologies  is aware of ICT challenges and can manage them effectively  uses ICT to relate to others in positive, meaningful ways  demonstrates honesty and integrity and ethical behaviour in their use of ICT  respects the concepts of privacy and freedom of speech in a digital world  contributes and actively promotes the values of digital citizenship
