  3. 3. Agenda • Introducing Web-based lessons • Definition • Steps to create Web-based lessons • Web-based lesson samples • Introducing e-portfolios • Definition • Exploring some e-portfolios • Step to create an e-portfolio • E-portfolios samples • Designing a web-based lesson and/or an e-portfolio Izquierdo, E.

  4. 4. What is a Web-based lesson? Izquierdo, E. (2014) Web-based lessons, e-Portfolios and e-assessment
  5. 5. A web-based lesson is… …simply a lesson that in some way incorporates a Web site or many Web sites. A Web-based lesson can be conducted entirely online or it can be a traditional classroom lesson with an online component…It can be used in a lesson for a variety of purposes, including research, reading, writing, publishing, communication and collaboration with teachers and learners around the world. (World Education Literacy Division, 2005) Izquierdo, E. (2014) Web-based lessons, e-Portfolios and e-assessment
  6. 6. Advantages Web-based lessons: • Are more interactive, dynamic and interesting. • Develop creativity. • Promote original activities. • Promote critical thinking. • Promote digital skills development. • Provide opportunities for all learning styles. • Fit to any target language level and students’ age. • Improve teacher-student and student-student interaction. • Promote collaboration. • Are very useful for language learners since they are exposed to a variety of formats, images, video, and sound. • Are a great tool for teachers. They can share their course works easily. • Can be used for multicultural exchange purposes. Izquierdo, E. (2014) Web-based lessons, e-Portfolios and e-assessment

  9. 9. What is an e-portfolio? Izquierdo, E. (2014) Web-based lessons, e-Portfolios and e-assessment This image belongs to Helen Barrett, 2007. See the original image in context.
  10. 10. An e-portfolio is… “… a purposeful collection of information and digital artifacts that demonstrates development or evidences learning outcomes, skills or competencies. The process of producing an ePortfolio (writing, typing, recording etc.) usually requires the synthesis of ideas, reflection on achievements, self-awareness and forward planning; with the potential for educational, developmental or other benefits. Specific types of ePortfolios can be defined in part by their purpose (such as presentation, application, reflection, assessment and personal development planning), pedagogic design, level of structure (intrinsic or extrinsic), duration (episodic or life-long) and other factors.“ (Newcastle University, 2008) Izquierdo, E. (2014) Web-based lessons, e-Portfolios and e-assessment
  11. 11. Advantages E-portfolios are excellent for: • EFL teaching and learning • Fostering content • Developing creativity • Increasing students' motivation • Working collaboratively • Promoting and developing group work • Integrating ICT into the traditional f2f classroom • Developing tech skills Izquierdo, E. (2014) Web-based lessons, e-Portfolios and e-assessment
  12. 12. e-Portfolios for K-12 by Helen Barrett, 2009 Izquierdo, E. (2014) Web-based lessons, e-Portfolios and e-assessment
  13. 13. e-Portfolios for higher education by Helen Barrett, 2009 Izquierdo, E. (2014) Web-based lessons, e-Portfolios and e-assessment
  14. 14. Important points to consider… • Purpose. Decide on the purpose for the portfolio. What are you trying to show with this portfolio? Are there outcomes, goals, or standards that are being demonstrated with this portfolio? • Collection/Classification. What artifacts will you include in your portfolio? How will you classify these entries? • Reflection. Reflection is the heart and soul of a portfolio. Reflection provides the rationale for why these artifacts represent achievement of a particular outcome, goal or standard. Blog entries provide an opportunity for reflection "in the present tense" or "reflection in action." • Connection/Interaction/Dialogue/Feedback. This stage provides an opportunity for interaction and feedback on the work posted in the portfolio. This is where the power of Web 2.0 interactive tools becomes apparent. • Summative Reflection/Selection/Evaluation. At the end of a course (or program), 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 entries. • Presentation/Publishing. The portfolio developer decides what parts of the portfolio are to be made public. Izquierdo, E. (2014) Web-based lessons, e-Portfolios and e-assessment By Hellen Barrett

Audience: Students, other teachers and all people who will read the e-portfolio 3. Steps: Every single step students have to follow in order to develop the e-portfolio, including their reflection on the work done. 4. Schedule: Content and activities to be posted per week. 5. Structure: Design pattern students should follow for their class work. If you design a group e- portfolio, you should add a page for each Team and team members. 4. E-portfolio (s): A collection of different woks done by the students. 5. Evaluation: Quantitative and/or qualitative, rubrics 6.

  20. 20. Agenda • Defining what e-assessment is • Making a difference between e-assessment and evaluation • Exploring different assessment tools • Designing a rubric for an e-assessment project.
  21. 21. http://willscullypower.wordpress.com/2009/08/ Assessment Vs Evaluation Sue Watson http://specialed.about.com/od/assessment/a/AandE.htm • Assessment requires the gathering of evidence of student performance over a period of time to measure learning and understanding. Evidence of learning could take the form of dialogue, journals, written work, portfolios, tests along with many other learning tasks. • Evaluation on the other hand occurs when a mark is assigned after the completion of a task, test, quiz, lesson or learning activity. A mark on a spelling test will determine if the child can spell the given words and would be seen as an evaluation.
