    Best practices for learning and instruction
    Learning as a reflective process
    Emphasis on growth and development
    Emphasis on learning as a process
    Transparency in the learning process

  • Before using OSP
    Publisher and FrontPage
    Word documents to complete reflective process
    Burned final FrontPage portfolio to CD
    Required design knowledge and extra time training student to use technology
    The focus was on design rather than the reflective process
    11th Sakai Conference - June 15-17, 2010
    7
  • Phase 1Free-form portfolio implementation
    Still used word documents for reflection
    Second semester Matrix introduced but not linked to portfolio
    Portfolio page was created in Word and cut/pasted into the Portfolio tool

  • Pros and Cons of free form
    Pros
    Allowed for student flexibility
    Required less student training on technology
    Centralized the products/process in one place
    Cons
    Many bugs that student had to work through
    Students still focused more on design than reflection
    Automated the product but not the process

  • Time for a change
    Needed several design options for students
    Needed to integrate with the process tools (matrix)
    Needed to be more scalable and flexible
    Had to have mandated pages yet students could still add own pages
    11th Sakai Conference - June 15-17, 2010

  • Current implementation
    Developed by Three Canoes
    Training conducted by Three Canoes
    First implementation, we layered designs on top of page composer
    Requires certain pages, yet allows students to add additional pages
