Focusing on PebblePad


Published on

This presentation is given to staff at Canterbury Christ Church University who are considering using an e-portfolio (or personal learning space) tool to support a range learning, teaching, assessment and professional development activities. The presentation starts off with a metaphor of a wardrobe (to represent the personal learning space), clothes (to represents the various artefacts and assets collected) and suitcases (to represent the different portfolios that can be constructed for different purposes and audiences) and concludes with a series of showcase ideas.

It is a private and confidential space where learners record their myriad experiences, make sense of their learning, and aggregate their assets into powerful presentations which reflect their growth, knowledge and capability. Learning in Pebble+ is supported by structured and reflective templates and enriched by commentary and feedback from others.
