K-12 Considerations• What ages are the students?• What content areas?• What is your current technology infrastructure (i.e., will network keep up with GoogleDocs network traffic)?• What is your computer-to-student ratio?• How many students will be implementing portfolios?• Will you use some type of Internet/cloud/Web 2.0 system?• What types of student eportfolios? – Storage, Workspace, Showcase – Dr. Helen Barrett: http://electronicportfolios.com/
