  • ePortfolios (revised)

    1. 1. ePortfolios What? Why? How?
    2. 2. What & Why? For students: An assessment tool for formative & summative assessment. The student collects evidence of learning & reflects on their learning. Professional: Teacher portfolio that showcases skills, background etc. with the goal of obtaining employment.
    3. 3. Student Portfolios Portfolios are increasingly common in schools & electronic portfolios are growing in popularity since they can include video, audio in addition to more traditional elements. ePortfolios can take many forms, in Manitoba ePearl is a popular platform supported by MB Ed. See ICT@BU google site for resources & information.
    4. 4. How? Offline: using PowerPoint, Keynote, Flash, html or similar product. Online: options from creating your own site to using tools like Wordpress, Google Sites, Weebly, Yola …
    5. 5. Some ideas: A welcome page Personal info, goals Resume (highlights & rest as pdf or all?) Experience: work, teaching, volunteer, etc Teaching philosophy Professional learning (include some info: what was it about? Reflection – what did you learn?) • Artifacts: student teaching reports, notes, lesson examples, activities, ICT items… • Classroom Management plan? • Sell yourself – include things you have done that might get you an interview/job • • • • • •
    6. 6. Remember! This is a dynamic, evolving artifact. Keep it: • current, • workable (no broken links), • dynamic, • aesthetically pleasing, • simple/clear navigation, • use colour, graphics, • include REFLECTIONS! • Remember the audience!
    7. 7. One more suggestion…. When you save files to include as attachments (resume, etc.) convert to a pdf & include it that way. Good luck!
    8. 8. Some examples!
