  3. 3. Legacy from the Portfolio LiteratureMuch to learn from the literature on paper-based portfoliosAs adult learners, we have much to learn from how children approach portfolios“Everything I know about portfolios was confirmed working with a kindergartener”
  4. 4. The Power of Portfolios what children can teach us about learning and assessmentAuthor: Elizabeth HebertPublisher: Jossey-BassPicture courtesy of
  5. 5. The Power of PortfoliosAuthor: Dr. Elizabeth Hebert, PrincipalCrow Island School, Winnetka, IllinoisPicture taken by Helen Barrett at AERA, Seattle, April, 2001
  6. 6. From the Preface (1) Hebert, Elizabeth (2001) The Power of Portfolios. Jossey-Bass, p.ix“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.”
  7. 7. From the Preface (2)Hebert, Elizabeth (2001) The Power of Portfolios. Jossey-Bass, p.ix “We formed part of our identity from thecontents of these memory boxes. Werecognized each piece and its association with aparticular time or experience. We shared thesecollections with grandparents to reinforcefeelings of pride and we reexamined them onrainy days when friends were unavailable forplay. Reflecting on the collection allowed us toattribute importance to these artifacts, and byextension to ourselves, as they gave witness tothe story of our early school experiences.”
  8. 8. From the Preface (3)Hebert, Elizabeth (2001) The Power of Portfolios. Jossey-Bass, p.ix-x “Our parents couldn’t possibly envisionthat these memory boxes would be theinspiration for an innovative way of thinkingabout children’s learning. These collections,lovingly stored away on our behalf, are thegenuine exemplar for documenting children’slearning over time. But now these memoryboxes have a different meaning. It’s not purelyprivate or personal, although the personal iswhat gives power to what they can mean.”
  9. 9. Let’s get personal…Think for a minute about:Something about your COLLECTIONS: Suggested topics: If you are a parent, what you saved for your children What your parents saved for you What you collect… Why you collect…
  10. 10. Some issues to consider What do your collections say about what you value? Is there a difference between what you purposefully save and what you can’t throw away? How can we use our personal collections experiences to help learners as they develop their portfolios? The power of portfolios [to support deep learning] is personal.

  16. 16. National Educational Technology Plan (2010) 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)

  68. 68. Voice 6+1 Trait® DefinitionVoice is the writer coming through the words, the sense that a real person is speaking to us and cares about the message. It is the heart and soul of the writing, the magic, the wit, the feeling, the life and breath. When the writer is engaged personally with the topic, he/she imparts a personal tone and flavor to the piece that is unmistakably his/hers alone. And it is that individual something–different from the mark of all other writers–that we call Voice.
  69. 69. Portfolio as Story"A portfolio tells a story.It is the story of knowing. Knowingabout things... Knowing oneself...Knowing an audience... Portfolios arestudents own stories of what theyknow, why they believe they know it,and why others should be of the sameopinion.”(Paulson & Paulson, 1991, p.2)
