Denton presentation implementing electronic portfolios through social media

  1. 1. Implementing ElectronicPortfolios through Social Media:Steps and Recommendationsfor Sustainable Portfolio UseBy David W. DentonSeattle Pacific University
  2. 2. AbstractOver the last two decades, students and teachers, across educational levels anddisciplines, have been subject to a variety of school reform efforts. Nevertheless, someinstructional practices, such as portfolio assessment, persist and grow in popularity evenin the midst of changing educational reform goals and shifting priorities. Teacher educationprograms have used paper-based portfolios for more than three decades. Recently,institutions have migrated to electronic portfolios since these provide several advantages.Early models of these systems required special technical skills, hardware, or fee-basedcontracts with service providers. The newest iteration of portfolio platforms are based onsocial media applications, which are easy to use, free, and more sustainable. However,the accelerated adoption of social media applications as repositories for student portfoliocontent has produced several gaps in the literature. Two of these include steps forimplementing electronic portfolios in social media platforms and instructional methods forsoliciting quality entries from students through questions and prompts. Basic instructionsfor implementing social media portfolios and for promoting quality entries are discussed. Inthis paper, new lines of inquiry involving social media portfolios are proposed.

  5. 5. Teacher Education  Professional knowledge and skills  Battery of assessments, TPACompete for RTTT $(many are called, few are chosen)Addition-subtraction ofstandards & assessments = ↑complexity
  6. 6. Portfolio AssessmentPortfolio assessment involves the collection and presentationof different types of student work samples, gathered over time,to show depth and breadth of learning. Work samples arecollected systematically to validate accomplishments relative tospecific instructional objectives. Portfolios contain writtenentries, often accompanying work samples, which arecharacterized by self-assessment through reflection. (Shermis & DiVesta, 2011)
