  4. 4. Context<br />Why…<br />Electronic Portfolios Now?<br />
  5. 5. 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 />

  18. 18. Purpose<br />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)<br />Paris, S & Ayres, L. (1994) Becoming Reflective Students and Teachers. American Psychological Association<br />
  19. 19. United #7 ePortfolio Vision Statement (Draft)<br />By implementing e-portfolios, United#7 will empower students to become active participants in their own personalized education. Through use of reflection, technology, and collaboration, students and teachers will develop skills that will lead them to achieve their lifelong goals.<br />
  20. 20. From Mead School District’s Student Portfolio Handbook:<br /> Remember, you are telling us a story, and not just any story. Your portfolio is meant to be your story of your life over the last four years as well as the story of where your life might be going during the next four years: tell it with pride!<br />

  27. 27. Student Literacy Achievement through Blogging<br />The Project definitely provided a motivation for writing, an improvement in audience awareness and purpose and in presentation skills. Other school interventions also had an impact on literacy achievement; however the Project has provided a purpose and enthusiasm for literacy.<br />The students of Manaiakalani were provided with a “hook” (e-learning outcomes published in on-line spaces) which gave these decile 1 students a voice to be heard globally. Subsequently, participating in the Manaiakalani Project enhanced their literacy, engagement, oral language and presentation. (p.70)<br />Tamaki Schools, Auckland, NZ<br />
