  18. 18. Assessment for Learning: It is based on the idea that pupils will improve most if they understand the aim of their learning, where they are in relation to this aim and how they can achieve the aim (or close the gap in their knowledge). QCA, 2005
  19. 19. “Good planning is essential to being clear.” Absolum, 2006
  20. 20. “Embedded in a view of teaching and learning, of which it is an essential part.” Assessment Reform Group, 1999
  21. 21. “The awareness of learning and the ability of learners to direct it for themselves is of increasing importance in the context of encouraging lifelong learning.” Assessment Reform Group, 1999
  22. 22. “What this amounts to is that self-assessment by pupils, far from being a luxury, is in essential fact an component of formative assessment.” Black & Wiliam, 1998
  23. 23. “Formative assessment does make a difference, and it is the quality, not just the quantity, of feedback that merits our closest attention.” Sadler, 1998
  24. 24. ePortfolios: Types... What are you trying to achieve by implementing ePortfolios?
  25. 25. ePortfolios The Accountability ePortfolio The The Process Showcase ePortfolio ePortfolio www.flickr.com/photos/96dpi

  43. 43. ePortfolios: The ‘container’...
  44. 44. ePortfolios: The tools... Have you thought about these...?
  45. 45. Should an eportfolio include all aspects of a student’s life and learning? www.flickr.com/photos/pasq

  50. 50. Do your current internet & computer use policies cater for eportfolios and use of Web 2.0 tools?
  51. 51. Will your eportfolios play a role in reporting achievement against the National Standards?
  52. 52. Do you need a packaged solution or is a mash-up of Web 2.0 tools OK? www.flickr.com/photos/diathesis
  53. 53. Is it important for eportfolios in your school to have a consistent look and feel? http://www.flickr.com/photos/cobalt/
  54. 54. Should your school expect the teachers to have a reflective eportfolio just as the students do? http://flickr.com/photos/torres21/
  55. 55. ePortfolios: The criteria... What would your criteria be for selecting an eportfolio solution?
  56. 56. Selecting an ePortfolio Solution Purpose and Perspectives Student Parents ePortfolio Solution School Teacher Management/ Leadership Government Policy?
  57. 57. Selecting an ePortfolio Solution Parent/School Students Teacher Leadership Communty Purpose: Non-Negotiable Criteria/features: What capability does the eportfolio need to support this purpose? Additional criteria/features: What else do you want to be able to do?

(criteria, feedback, feedforward, peer/self- assessment, reflection) • Celebrate and share achievement. • Ownership of learning Non-Negotiable Criteria/features: What capability does the eportfolio need to support this purpose? • Upload/embed post learning examples (photos, movies, Web 2.0 creations) • Allow comments • Ability to customise/personalise Additional criteria/features: What else do you want to be able to do? Student retains ownership even if leaving or transferring schools.
  59. 59. Web based (anywhere, anytime) Web 2.0 tool integration Ability to comment, reflect & feedforward Ability to demonstrate learning Facilitate social networking Secure User friendly Aesthetics User storage space Manageability Expandability Level of technical know how required Availability of technical support Cost Access/edit from mobile device
  60. 60. ePortfolio Management... In order to be effective and support the process of student learning, eportfolios: •need to be embedded into your teaching and learning. •require a high level of access to technology. •you need to set time aside for students to first learn how and then to actively reflect and give feedback on learning. Start small, and work your way up. Get students actively blogging in a class blog and move on to individual spaces
  61. 61. ePortfolio Management... ePortfolios do not add to your workload. Instead you will need to change some of the ways you: • give feedback • facilitate reflection • engage students in self and peer assessments and • you need to adapt learning and teaching so that the process and outcomes can be shared digitally within the eportfolio platform.
