Launched in 2009, the new curriculum (CfE) is aimed at developing the attributes, knowledge and skills needed to flourish in life, learning and work⁴. The political and economic 1. aspirations of a nation are resting on educational reform¹ and investment in technology² but a lack of support in a key area could act to dilute the ambition. 5. 6. Research evidence⁷ indicates that e-portfolios are appropriate tools to support CfE assessment profiling.

Scottish Parliament Building by Kim Traynor, on WikiMedia Profiles Centrally, e-portfolios are being promoted to support the production of the statutory summative statement on pupil achievement - the 'Pupil Profile⁸. Crucially, the potential for e-portfolios to support profiling is being neglected by the pupil, teacher and parental support services. 7. Stakeholders are in need of support material in order to set a context for e-portfolio use in the day-to-day learning and teaching of a school. The web site resource E-Portfolios and profiling: a new resource for Scottish schools aims to provide that support.

  4. 4. Transcript Click for transcript audio Back to poster Summary statement E-portfolios and profiling: a new resource for Scottish schools is the title of a website that will be developed to help Scottish schools capitalise on the potential of e-portfolios to support the requirements of the assessment framework of Scotland’s new Curriculum for Excellence. Problem statement In setting out their agenda for the future economic prosperity of Scotland, the Scottish Government have looked to reform the school curriculum and invest heavily in technology in the state school sector. Unfortunately, key support resources needed to maximise the aspirations and ambitions of the reforms and investment have not been put in place and could thus act to minimise the hoped for effect. Background In 2007 the Scottish Government launched Glow, the worlds first national education intranet. Glow is equipped with a number of online collaborative tools including an e-portfolio tool. In 2009, the reformed curriculum labelled the Curriculum for Excellence was launched. The new curriculum is aimed at developing the attributes, knowledge and skills needed to flourish in life, learning and work. The assessment framework of the new curriculum, which is grounded in the research associated with assessment for learning, looks to promote high quality interactions between learners and staff; learner involvement in reflection; peer and self assessment. These processes have collectively been labelled as 'profiling' by the assessment framework. Research evidence would suggest that e-portfolios tools are ideally matched to support the assessment process of pupil profiling. Issue E-portfolios are generally being promoted by Education Scotland, the independent agency that provides educational support to schools and local authorities in Scotland, as a tool to support the creation of a summative document of achievement called the pupil profile. The production of the pupil profile is a statutory requirement of schools. The potential of e-portfolios to support profiling is being neglected by Education Scotland and the agencies that support children and parents. Transcript (cont'd)
