  5. 5. 12/11/2018 Dr. Helen Barrett The Power of Portfolios Author: Dr. Elizabeth Hebert, Principal Crow Island School, Winnetka, Illinois Picture taken by Helen Barrett at AERA, Seattle, April, 2001 5
  6. 6. 12/11/2018 Dr. Helen Barrett From the Preface (1) “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.” Hebert, Elizabeth (2001) The Power of Portfolios. Jossey-Bass, p.ix 6
  7. 7. 12/11/2018 Dr. Helen Barrett From the Preface (2) “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.” Hebert, Elizabeth (2001) The Power of Portfolios. Jossey-Bass, p.ix 7
  8. 8. 12/11/2018 Dr. Helen Barrett From the Preface (3) “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.” Hebert, Elizabeth (2001) The Power of Portfolios. Jossey-Bass, p.ix-x 8
  9. 9. 12/11/2018 Dr. Helen Barrett Let’s get personal… Think for a minute about: (Think-Pair-Share Activity) 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… 9
  10. 10. 12/11/2018 Dr. Helen Barrett 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. 10

  20. 20. Role of the Student • Students upload artifacts to showcase their learning • Student reflect on their learning (What? So What? Now What?) • Students create pages to organize and display their work • Students share pages with whomever they wish • Students evaluate and provide feedback on peer pages https://michiganmoodle.dearbornschools.org/teaching/eportfolios-what-is-the-best-tool-to-use/ 12/11/2018 Dr. Helen Barrett 20
  21. 21.

  23. 23. WHY? 12/11/2018 Dr. Helen Barrett 23
  24. 24. Context Why… Electronic Portfolios Now? 12/11/2018 Dr. Helen Barrett 24
  25. 25. 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 1 set their own learning goals, 2 express their own views of their strengths, weaknesses, and achievements [self-assessment], and 3 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)12/11/2018 Dr. Helen Barrett 25
  26. 26. Multiple Purposes from Hidden Assumptions What are yours? • Showcase • Assessment • Learning • http://www.rsc-northwest.ac.uk/acl/eMagArchive/RSCeMag2008/choosing%20an%20eportfolio/cool-cartoon- 346082.png
  27. 27. Hostos CC Vision To bring about an integrated institution-wide e-Portfolio environment to maximize the creative, academic, and professional potential of every student. 12/11/2018 Dr. Helen Barrett 27
  28. 28. Hostos CC Mission Encourage integrative learning by creating online learning spaces that foster student reflection on academic learning, personal and professional goals, and career planning to increase student performance, retention, and engagement. 12/11/2018 Dr. Helen Barrett 28
  29. 29. Vision statement for a university in the southern U.S. We envision students using an electronic portfolio as an integral part of their education: - to reflect on learning, - to integrate their knowledge, - to learn more deeply, - to shape curricular choices and goals, and - to showcase skills and accomplishments. 12/11/2018 Dr. Helen Barrett 29
  30. 30. Northeastern U.S. University • “…based on our read of the portfolios… the redesign transformed the program from a collection of courses into an intentionally designed learning experience… from a ‘degree with a portfolio requirement’ into a portfolio program whose students graduate with a collection of signature work that evidences their capabilities.” “Are we who we think we are? ePortfolios as a Tool for Curriculum Redesign.” Gail Matthews-DeNatale12/11/2018 Dr. Helen Barrett 30
  31. 31. Purpose • The overarching purpose of portfolios is to create a sense of personal ownership over one’s accomplishments, because ownership engenders feelings of pride, responsibility, and dedication. (p.10) • Paris, S & Ayres, L. (1994) Becoming Reflective Students and Teachers. American Psychological Association 12/11/2018 Dr. Helen Barrett 31
  32. 32. Changing Learning • The utilization of e-portfolio systems has the potential to change the nature of learning environments and the ways in which student learning is promoted through different modes of learning. https://michiganmoodle.dearbornschools.org/teaching/eportfolios-what-is-the-best-tool-to-use/ 12/11/2018 Dr. Helen Barrett 32
  33. 33. Empowering Students • For students, it empowers their ownership in what they're learning and how they're learning. And it also empowers them to order the way they approach information. https://michiganmoodle.dearbornschools.org/teaching/eportfolios-what-is-the-best-tool-to-use/ 12/11/2018 Dr. Helen Barrett 33
  34. 34. Tracking Growth • E-portfolios can be used to do more than just demonstrate student progress toward standards. They can also allow students to show who they are as individuals, while also providing a means for tracking a student's growth. • Model process for teachers to use with their students. https://michiganmoodle.dearbornschools.org/teaching/eportfolios-what-is-the-best-tool-to-use/ 12/11/2018 Dr. Helen Barrett 34
  35. 35. Deep Learning 12/11/2018 Dr. Helen Barrett • involves reflection, • is developmental, • is integrative, • is self-directive, and • is lifelong Cambridge (2004) 35
  36. 36. Lifelong Learner Four key pillars of Lifelong Learning (Barbara Stäuble, Curtin University of Technology, Australia) 12/11/2018 Dr. Helen Barrett 36
  37. 37. Knowing the learner (Self-awareness) • Understanding prior knowledge • Motivation for and attitudes toward learning • Help learners understand themselves • See their growth over time 12/11/2018 Dr. Helen Barrett 37
  38. 38. Evaluating learning (Self monitoring) • Systematic analysis of learners’ performance • Responsibility to construct meaning • Be reflective & think critically • Learners construct meaning, monitor learning, evaluate own outcomes 12/11/2018 Dr. Helen Barrett 38

  41. 41. Portfolios provide Encouragement for Reflection Metaphors: Sonnet – Mirror – Map 1. …provides both the discipline and the freedom of structure, allowing one to see one's own work. (Sonnet) 2. …provides the opportunity to assess one's own strengths and weaknesses through examination of a collection of samples, as well as to get feedback on one's performance from others. (Mirror) 3. …the process of self assessment leads one to setting goals for future development and professional growth. (Map) (Mary Diez, 1994) 12/11/2018 Dr. Helen Barrett 41
  42. 42. 12/11/2018 Dr. Helen Barrett “The portfolio is a laboratory where students construct meaning from their accumulated experience." (Paulson & Paulson, 1991, p.5) 42
  43. 43. “metacognition lies at the root of all learning” “…self-knowledge, awareness of how and why we think as we do, and the ability to adapt and learn, are critical to our survival as individuals…” - James Zull (2011) From Brain to Mind: Using Neuroscience to Guide Change in Education

  61. 61. E-portfolios should be more Conversation than Presentation Because Conversation transforms! Learning is a Conversation! 12/11/2018 Dr. Helen Barrett 61
  62. 62. Portfolio as Story "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) 12/11/2018 Dr. Helen Barrett 62
  63. 63. Helping Students to Reflect • Provide models and examples • Begin with forms or prompts • Move to journals/blogs • Be careful that reflection in portfolios doesn’t become an exercise in filling in the blanks on a web-based form. 12/11/2018 Dr. Helen Barrett 63
  64. 64. Reflective Questions that tie the Past to the Future 12/11/2018 Dr. Helen Barrett 64

Describe • Who? • What? • When? • Where? 3. Analyze • Why? • How? 4. Appraise • Interpret events • Determine impact • Determine effectiveness • Determine the relationship to goals, values, philosophy 5. Transform • Utilize the information and data • Apply to teaching practice • Develop new goals and strategies based on the data 12/11/2018 Dr. Helen Barrett North Carolina Reflection Cycle Self- Assessment: The Reflective Practitioner http://www.ncpublicschools.org/pbl/pbl reflect.htm 65
  66. 66. Writing a Reflection - 1 http://www.ncpublicschools.org/pbl/pblreflect.htm 1. Select: What evidence/artifacts have you included? 2. Describe: This step involves a description of the circumstances, situation or issues related to the evidence or artifact. Four "W" questions are usually addressed: – Who was involved? – What were the circumstances, concerns, or issues? – When did the event occur? – Where did the event occur? 12/11/2018 Dr. Helen Barrett 66
  67. 67. Writing a Reflection - 2 http://www.ncpublicschools.org/pbl/pblreflect.htm 3. Analyze: "digging deeper." • "Why" of the evidence or artifact • "How" of its relationship to teaching practice 4. Appraise: In the previous three steps, you have described and analyzed an experience, a piece of evidence, or an activity. The actual self-assessment occurs at this stage as you interpret the activity or evidence and evaluate its appropriateness and impact. 5. Transform: This step holds the greatest opportunity for growth as you use the insights gained from reflection in improving and transforming your practice. 12/11/2018 Dr. Helen Barrett 67

  102. 102. ePortfolios: Not a Magic Bullet Questions that need asking • Are ePortfolios really student-centred? • Is an ePortfolio just another way of getting a grade? • Is ePortfolio just another way of “reporting up”? • If ePortfolios are used for learning assessment, are you prepared to assess for prior learning? • If it is a tool for transition: – What happens when a student brings an ePortfolio to your institution, say from high school? – Will your students want to keep their ePortfolios after they graduate? – Will you do this as a favour, or a deliberate strategy? • Are they too much work?
