What functions can be achieved with mobile phones for each of these processes? • Capturing & storing evidence - this evidence of learning can be in the form of text, images, audio or video • Reflecting - “the heart and soul of a portfolio” - this reflection could be captured in real time in different formats: writing, voice capture (and voice-to-text conversion), video capture and digital stories • Giving & receiving feedback - one of the most effective uses of a portfolio is to review a learner’s work and providing feedback for improvement • Planning & setting goals - a very important part of the portfolio process is personal development planning and setting goals for achievement • Collaborating - learning is a social activity - technology provides new forms of collaboration • Presenting to an audience - at specific points in the learning process, a learner may put together a presentation of their learning outcomes for an audience, either real or virtual
