  • I will be emphasizing this purpose for portfolio development.
  • There are the two major approaches to implementing e-portfolios. Janus is the Roman god of gates and doors, beginnings and endings, and hence represented with a double-faced head, each looking in opposite directions. He was worshipped at the beginning of the harvest time, planting, marriage, birth, and other types of beginnings, especially the beginnings of important events in a person's life. Janus also represents the transition between primitive life and civilization, between the countryside and the city, peace and war, and the growing-up of young people.
  • Spanish and Catalan
  • How do portfolios and reflection fit into the learning process?BEFORE - goal-setting (reflection in the future tense), DURING - immediate reflection (in the present tense), where students write (or dictate) the reason why they chose a specific artifact to include in their collectionAFTER - retrospective (in the past tense) where students look back over a collection of work and describe what they have learned and how they have changed over a period of time (in a Level 3 portfolio)
  • As defined in a JISC publication, Effective Practices with e-portfolios: The e-portfolio is the central and common point for the student experience… It is a reflection of the student as a person undergoing continuous personal development, not just a store of evidence. (Geoff Rebbeck, e-Learning Coordinator, Thanet College, quoted in JISC, 2008, Effective Practice with e-Portfolios)
  • Begin to develop successful ePortfolio Processes this week through your PD. Here are the strategies you need to include: Students develop multimedia artifacts through Project-Based Learning & Learning with Laptops.Engage students in reflection to facilitate deep learning through Digital Storytelling and Journals/Blogs & Presentation Portfolios.
  • Here is a digital story created at a workshop I conducted in NJ over 7 years ago.

  • ISTE NETS
  • Enhancing students' computer & multimedia skills through ePortfolios
  • Draft National Educational Technology Plan (2010)
    Technology also gives students opportunities for taking ownership of their learning. Student-managed electronic learning portfolios can be part of a persistent learning record and help students develop the self-awareness required to set their own learning goals, express their own views of their strengths, weaknesses, and achievements, and take responsibility for them. Educators can use them to gauge students’ development, and they also can be shared with peers, parents, and others who are part of students’ extended network. (p.12)
  • Legacy from the Portfolio Literature
    • Much to learn fromthe literature onpaper-based portfolios
    • As adult learners, we have much to learn from how children approach portfolios
    “Everything I know about portfolios was confirmed working with a kindergartener”
  • The Power of Portfolios
    what children can teach us about learning and assessment

  • The Power of Portfolios
    Author: Dr. Elizabeth Hebert, Principal
    Crow Island School, Winnetka, Illinois
    Picture taken by Helen Barrett at AERA, Seattle, April, 2001
  • From the Preface (1)
    Hebert, Elizabeth (2001) The Power of Portfolios. Jossey-Bass, p.ix
    “Portfolios have been with us for a very long time. Those of us who grew up in the 1950s or earlier recognize portfolios as reincarnations of the large memory boxes or drawers where our parents collected starred spelling tests, lacy valentines, science fair posters, early attempts at poetry, and (of course) the obligatory set of plaster hands. Each item was selected by our parents because it represented our acquisition of a new skill or our feelings of accomplishment. Perhaps an entry was accompanied by a special notation of praise from a teacher or maybe it was placed in the box just because we did it.”
  • From the Preface (2)
    Hebert, Elizabeth (2001) The Power of Portfolios. Jossey-Bass, p.ix
    “We formed part of our identity from the contents of these memory boxes. We recognized each piece and its association with a particular time or experience. We shared these collections with grandparents to reinforce feelings of pride and we reexamined them on rainy days when friends were unavailable for play. Reflecting on the collection allowed us to attribute importance to these artifacts, and by extension to ourselves, as they gave witness to the story of our early school experiences.”
  • From the Preface (3)
    Hebert, Elizabeth (2001) The Power of Portfolios. Jossey-Bass, p.ix-x
    “Our parents couldn’t possibly envision that these memory boxes would be the inspiration for an innovative way of thinking about children’s learning. These collections, lovingly stored away on our behalf, are the genuine exemplar for documenting children’s learning over time. But now these memory boxes have a different meaning. It’s not purely private or personal, although the personal is what gives power to what they can mean.”
  • Let’s get personal…Think for a minute about:
    Something about your COLLECTIONS:Suggested topics:
    • If you are a parent, what you saved for your children
    • What your parents saved for you
    • What you collect…
    • Why you collect…
  • Some issues to consider
    • What do your collections say about what you value?
    • Is there a difference between what you purposefully save and what you can’t throw away?
    • How can we use our personal collections experiences to help learners as they develop their portfolios?
    The power of portfolios [to support deep learning] is personal.
  • Technology & Reflection
    Two Themes across the Lifespan with ePortfolio Development and Social Networking
    21
  • What is a Portfolio?
    Dictionary definition: a flat, portable case for carrying loose papers, drawings, etc.
    Financial portfolio: document accumulation of fiscalcapital
    Educational portfolio: document development of humancapital
  • What is a Portfolio in Education?
    A portfolio is a purposeful collection of [academic] work that exhibits the [learner’s]efforts, progress and achievements in one ormore areas[over time].
    (Northwest Evaluation Association, 1990)
  • E-Portfolio Components
    • Multiple Portfolios for Multiple Purposes-Celebrating Learning-Personal Planning-Transition/entry to courses-Employment applications-Accountability/Assessment

  • Focus on ePortfolios for Teacher Professional Development & Student Lifelong Learning
  • Four key pillars of Lifelong Learning(Barbara Stäuble, Curtin University of Technology, Australia)
    http://lsn.curtin.edu.au/tlf/tlf2005/refereed/stauble.html
  • Knowing the learner (Self-awareness)
    • Understanding prior knowledge
    • Motivation for and attitudes toward learning
    • Help learners understand themselves
    • See their growth over time
  • Planning for learning (Self management)
    • Setting goals
    • Develop a plan to achieve these goals
  • Understanding how to learn (Meta-learning)
    • Awareness of learners to different approaches to learning
    • Deep vs. Surface Learning, Rote vs. MeaningfulLearning
    • Different Learning Styles
    • Help learners recognize success
    • Accommodate approaches that are not successful
  • Evaluating learning (Self monitoring)
    • Systematic analysis oflearners’ performance
    • Responsibility toconstruct meaning
    • Be reflective & think critically
    • Learners construct meaning,monitor learning, evaluate own outcomes
  • Learner-Centered Philosophy
    "A portfolio tells a story. It is the story of knowing. Knowing about things... Knowing oneself... Knowing an audience... Portfolios are students' own stories of what they know, why they believe they know it, and why others should be of the same opinion.” (Paulson & Paulson, 1991, p.2)
  • Deep Learning
    • involves reflection,
    • is developmental,
    • is integrative,
    • is self-directive, and
    • is lifelong
    Cambridge (2004)
  • Electronic Portfolios
    almost two decades (since 1991)
    used primarily in education to
    store documents
    reflect on learning
    feedback for improvement
    showcase achievements for accountability or employment

  • Process
    Purpose. Decide on the purpose for the portfolio. What are you trying to show with this portfolio?
    Collection/Classification. What artifacts will you include in your portfolio? How will you classify these entries? (Level 1)
    Reflection. Blog entries provide an opportunity for reflection "in the present tense" or "reflection in action.” (Level 2)
    Connection/Interaction/Dialogue/Feedback. This stage provides an opportunity for interaction and feedback on the work posted in the portfolio. (Level 2)
    Summative Reflection/Selection/Evaluation. Students would write a reflection that looks back over the course (or program) and provides a meta-analysis of the learning experience as represented in the reflections stored in the blog/journal entries. (Level 3)
    Presentation/Publishing. The portfolio developer decides what parts of the portfolio are to be made public. (Level 3)
    REPEAT for each learning activity or artifact.

    When did the event occur?
    Where did the event occur?

    Analyze: "digging deeper."
    • "Why" of the evidence or artifact
    • "How" of its relationship to teaching practice
    Appraise: In the previous three steps, you have described and analyzed an experience, a piece of evidence, or an activity. The actual self-assessment occurs at this stage as you interpret the activity or evidence and evaluate its appropriateness and impact.
