  25. 25. Draft National Educational Technology Plan (2010)<br />Technology also gives students opportunities for taking ownership of their learning. Student-managed electronic learning portfolios can be part of a persistent learning record and help students develop the self-awareness required to set their own learning goals, express their own views of their strengths, weaknesses, and achievements, and take responsibility for them. Educators can use them to gauge students’ development, and they also can be shared with peers, parents, and others who are part of students’ extended network. (p.12)<br />

  28. 28. The Power of Portfolios<br /> what children can teach us about learning and assessment<br />Author: Elizabeth Hebert<br />Publisher: Jossey-Bass<br />Picture courtesy of<br />
  29. 29. The Power of Portfolios<br />Author: Dr. Elizabeth Hebert, Principal<br />Crow Island School, Winnetka, Illinois<br />Picture taken by Helen Barrett at AERA, Seattle, April, 2001<br />
  30. 30. From the Preface (1)<br />Hebert, Elizabeth (2001) The Power of Portfolios. Jossey-Bass, p.ix<br />“Portfolios have been with us for a very long time. Those of us who grew up in the 1950s or earlier recognize portfolios as reincarnations of the large memory boxes or drawers where our parents collected starred spelling tests, lacy valentines, science fair posters, early attempts at poetry, and (of course) the obligatory set of plaster hands. Each item was selected by our parents because it represented our acquisition of a new skill or our feelings of accomplishment. Perhaps an entry was accompanied by a special notation of praise from a teacher or maybe it was placed in the box just because we did it.”<br />
  31. 31. From the Preface (2)<br />Hebert, Elizabeth (2001) The Power of Portfolios. Jossey-Bass, p.ix<br /> “We formed part of our identity from the contents of these memory boxes. We recognized each piece and its association with a particular time or experience. We shared these collections with grandparents to reinforce feelings of pride and we reexamined them on rainy days when friends were unavailable for play. Reflecting on the collection allowed us to attribute importance to these artifacts, and by extension to ourselves, as they gave witness to the story of our early school experiences.”<br />
  32. 32. From the Preface (3)<br />Hebert, Elizabeth (2001) The Power of Portfolios. Jossey-Bass, p.ix-x<br /> “Our parents couldn’t possibly envision that these memory boxes would be the inspiration for an innovative way of thinking about children’s learning. These collections, lovingly stored away on our behalf, are the genuine exemplar for documenting children’s learning over time. But now these memory boxes have a different meaning. It’s not purely private or personal, although the personal is what gives power to what they can mean.”<br />
  33. 33. Let’s get personal…Think for a minute about:<br />Something about your COLLECTIONS:Suggested topics:<br /><ul><li>If you are a parent, what you saved for your children
  34. 34. What your parents saved for you
  35. 35. What you collect…
  36. 36. Why you collect…</li></li></ul><li>Some issues to consider<br /><ul><li>What do your collections say about what you value?
  37. 37. Is there a difference between what you purposefully save and what you can’t throw away?
  38. 38. How can we use our personal collections experiences to help learners as they develop their portfolios?</li></ul>The power of portfolios [to support deep learning] is personal.<br />

  98. 98. Be reflective & think critically
  99. 99. Learners construct meaning,monitor learning, evaluate own outcomes</li></li></ul><li>Learner-Centered Philosophy<br /> "A portfolio tells a story. It is the story of knowing. Knowing about things... Knowing oneself... Knowing an audience... Portfolios are students' own stories of what they know, why they believe they know it, and why others should be of the same opinion.” (Paulson & Paulson, 1991, p.2)<br />
  100. 100. Deep Learning<br /><ul><li>involves reflection,
  101. 101. is developmental,
  102. 102. is integrative,
  103. 103. is self-directive, and
  104. 104. is lifelong</li></ul>Cambridge (2004)<br />

  158. 158. Google Sites ePortfolios<br />
  159. 159. Process<br />Purpose. Decide on the purpose for the portfolio. What are you trying to show with this portfolio?<br />Collection/Classification. What artifacts will you include in your portfolio? How will you classify these entries? (Level 1)<br />Reflection. Blog entries provide an opportunity for reflection "in the present tense" or "reflection in action.” (Level 2)<br />Connection/Interaction/Dialogue/Feedback. This stage provides an opportunity for interaction and feedback on the work posted in the portfolio. (Level 2)<br />Summative Reflection/Selection/Evaluation. 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/journal entries. (Level 3)<br />Presentation/Publishing. The portfolio developer decides what parts of the portfolio are to be made public. (Level 3)<br />REPEAT for each learning activity or artifact.<br />
