    • HOW DID I GET JOBS?
      • Simsmetal (word of mouth)
      • Royal Show (word of mouth)
      • Labourer (word of mouth)
      • Kitchen Hand (word of mouth)
      • Passport Courier (employment agency)
      • Market Research (word of mouth + form)
      • Teacher (full on application process)
      • Projects – tapped on shoulder or application
      • Being the straightforward people that Australians are, sometimes the best way to find job leads is to go into the nearest pub, sit yourself down with a drink and see what happens.

    • CURRENT STATE OF JOB FINDING
      • 60 – 70% of jobs in Australia are found via word of mouth
      • Around 20% of employers fill positions from online applicants
    • SURVEY (20 – 40 yrs)
    • Should one size fit all?
    • 21c http://flickr.com/photos/7447470@N06/1345266896/ Organisations will need to adapt to the fact that web 2.0 citizens will enter places of work and learning highly connected to a network of peers that they rely on for entertainment, mutual learning, and collaboration. They may expect to be able to make use of these personal learning and social networks, and the technologies that make these networks possible, in their places of work or study. These web 2.0 citizens operate in a world that is open and mobile, and they are unlikely to accept authority that is automatically assigned to a position. Their world is flat and devoid of hierarchy. In a world where information about their areas of interest or expertise is increasing exponentially they will place greater store on connected networks, which may extend beyond classroom or workplace boundaries,and knowing where to get the knowledge and information they need, rather than having that knowledge and information themselves.
    • OPEN SOURCE OR PROPRIETARY?
      • We can store our evidence in many places online (a federated cloud-based storage system); we just need a tool to aggregate that data for different purposes and different audiences. (Helen Barrett, 28/10/10)
    •  
    • Lifestream Try Spezify, Addictomatic
    • Where’s the push coming from?
    • Gordon Boyes: “If eportfolios are such a good idea why aren't they more in evidence?”
    • THE AGE FACTOR
      • Boomers don’t really need eportfolios (reaching end of professional life)
      • No incentive to model process

    • Victor Callan grouped elearning, e-assessment, and eportfolios together, and detailed some challenges and solutions.
      • Martin Dougiamas (creator of Moodle), sadly proclaims that 90% of thousands of Moodle sites world wide are basically respositories of documents, with a token forum or other interactive space.
    • Skills of the Teacher/Lecturer Mitchell and Ward:
      • A report on the National Survey of Vocational Education and Training (VET) Practitioner (January, 2010)
      • Elearning seen as part of an advanced skill set; less than 10% of VET lecturers see themselves in this category
    • Skills of the Teacher/Lecturer Callan and Clayton : E-assessment and the AQTF: Bridging the divide between practitioners and auditors
      • Many VET staff don't have a proper understanding of ASSESSMENT, let alone e-assessment!
    • They're Disruptive Eportfolios are a disruptive technology and represent 'troublesome knowledge'. (See Christiansen's “Disrupting Class”)
    • Elearning + E-Assessment + Eportfolios = JUST ALL TOO HARD FOR ORGANISATIONS TO MANAGE
    • MAYBE BEST LEFT TO THE INDIVIDUAL. PROVIDE A TOOL, AND SUPPORT IF STUDENT NEEDS OR REQUESTS IT....
    • ePortfolios need to be
      • A matter of personal choice
      • Able to easily import content (see Mahara/Moodle integration) ; via RSS feeds
      • Fully exportable (to HTML or other format)
      • Fully portable
      • Permanent (favours open source route)
    • What matters more? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LeaAHv4UTI8
