  5. 5. Why Mobile is a Must • Kids today are captivated by the personalization and socialization of online tools--the ability to build large networks of friends; share their thoughts, feelings, and goals; and communicate as they wish. …And not only is it possible, it's possible anytime and anywhere, via a plethora of devices and widely available cellular and WiFi networks. • -- Mary McCaffrey “Why Mobile is a Must” T.H.E. Journal

They have the ability to interact with other learners at their convenience, with differences in time and place presenting no hurdle. They can research, on the spot, any topic of interest. And they can capture the moment, whether it's in a picture, a video, or a blog entry. • -- Mary McCaffrey “Why Mobile is a Must” T.H.E. Journal
  7. 7. Think-Pair-Share • Think about how you use technology today and how your students use technology. – What is your most-used software? Website? – What tools/websites do most of your students use? – How could we use the skills gained from using those tools/websites to build ePortfolios? – Write down your questions about the tools/websites that could be used to create ePortfolios.

  12. 12. Planning Process Questions: A. Getting Ready 1. Are you ready? Do you have the essential technology resources & skills? 2. What are your incentives? What are the benefits of developing portfolios? “Why?” 3. What is your vision for implementing portfolios? Use vision to communicate. 4. Who are the stakeholders*? How will you communicate with them? * Students, faculty, administrators, etc.
  13. 13. Planning Process Questions: B. Levels of ePortfolio Development 5.1 How will you capture the learning, develop digital artefacts and where will you store them? [Level 1 Portfolio: Storage] 5.2 How will your students set goals, reflect on their learning and create a reflective journal as part of a personal learning record or working portfolio? [Level 2 Portfolio: Workspace] 5.3 How will your students create a showcase portfolio, reflecting on growth over time and setting new learning goals? [Level 3 Portfolio: Showcase]

  15. 15.
  16. 16. 1. Purpose • Purpose. Decide on the purpose for the portfolio. What are you trying to show with this portfolio? Are there outcomes, goals, or standards that are being demonstrated with this portfolio?
  17. 17. 1 paragraph! What is your “elevator Speech” describing your Vision for ePortfolios?
  18. 18. A California School District Vision • Electronic portfolios foster meaningful learning by allowing all students to evaluate their growth over time, to share their achievements and strengths with others, and to improve their own skills through reflection and goal setting.
  19. 19. From Mead School District’s Student Portfolio Handbook: 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!
  20. 20. Hands-on Activity & Reflection • What is your purpose (Why?) for implementing ePortfolios in your class/program this year? • How will you help students showcase their learning with their ePortfolios? When? To whom?
  21. 21. 2. Collection/Classification • What artifacts will you include in your portfolio? How will you classify these entries? • Students: convert all attached artifacts into web-compatible formats (JPEG or PDF)
  22. 22. Level 1 - Collection Google Drive
  23. 23. Share What are strategies to create digital artifacts integrated into the curriculum? Create assignments that result in digital documents. Audio, Video, Images, Text Google Drive
  24. 24. Think Digital • Paper --> Word processing --> PDF • Slide Show --> Presentation --> PDF • Camera --> Picture --> Digital Image • Audio Tape --> MP3 audio file • Video Tape --> Video file/online video • Journal --> Online journal/blog One of the most powerful elements of an online portfolio 

  27. 27. 3. Reflection. • Reflection is the heart and soul of a portfolio. Reflection provides the rationale for why these artifacts represent achievement of a particular outcome, goal or standard. Blog entries provide an opportunity for reflection "in the present tense" or "reflection in action."
  28. 28. Level 2: Primary Purpose: Learning/Reflection A Reflective Journal
  29. 29. Students Reflect – During – Dr. Barrett's Google Site on Reflection for Learning) – Students: Write a journal entry with a reflection on each learning activity or artifact (what is the context in which this artifact was developed? What did you learn?). – Students: Add your own classification using Tags – Students: Add appropriate artifacts (through hyperlinks) or as an attachment to the journal entry.
  30. 30. Hands-on Activity & Reflection • Create a “template” for reflecting on an artifact. How will you help your students reflect on their work in their journal/blogs? • Share resources to support student reflection and goal- setting (prompts, etc.)
  31. 31. 4. Connection/Interaction/ Dialogue/Feedback. • This stage provides an opportunity for interaction and feedback on the work posted in the portfolio. – provide feedback on the work posted in the ePortfolio/blog entries.

  32. 32. Hands-on Activity & Reflection • When and how will your students receive feedback on their work in their journals? • What type of resources could you share to support student commenting (prompts, etc.)
  33. 33. Types of Reflection Working Portfolio/Blog: • Future – Goal Setting • Present – Self-Assessment on artefacts OR learning experiences Showcase Portfolio • Past/Future – Metacognition (thinking about thinking/ learning) tied to a collection of evidence
  34. 34. Structure of ePortfolio Types • Portfolio as Process/ Workspace – Organization: Chronological – Documenting growth over time for both internal and external audiences – Primary Purpose: Learning or Reflection – Reflection: immediate focus on artifact or learning experience • Portfolio as Product/ Showcase – Organization: Thematic – Documenting achievement of Standards, Goals or Learning Outcomes for primarily external audiences – Primary Purpose: Accountability or Employment or Showcase – Reflection: retrospective focus on Standards, Goals or Learning Outcomes (Themes) Blog - journal website
  35. 35. Level 3: Primary Purpose: Showcase/Accountability Level 3: Showcase Portfolio Pages organized thematically with rationale
  36. 36. 5. Summative Reflection/Selection/Evaluation. • At the end of a course (or program), 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.
  37. 37. 6. Presentation/Publishing • The portfolio developer decides what parts of the portfolio are to be made public. – Student: Create a set of pages that highlight the best components of the portfolio, linking to specific entries in the blog. Add the evidence (through hyperlinks to blog entries or artifacts) to the appropriate sub-pages in the portfolio.
  38. 38. Students Reflect - After – Students: Review the blog/journal entries for that category, and write a "retrospective reflection" about the learning represented in the artifacts, selecting one or two examples that best represent achievement. – Students: Prepare a Page for each Outcome, Goal or Standard, and link to the selected "best" blog entries, writing a reflection on each page (by outcome/goal/standard) which should also have the artifact attached or linked.
  39. 39. Students Organize Showcase Portfolio – Students: Create an Introduction page, which should contain an overview of the portfolio. It serves as a “letter to the reader” and provides an explanation of the overall goals of the portfolio. Provide links to other pages developed in the portfolio. Advertise this Introduction page as the initial access point in your portfolio. – Students: Create a page with Future Learning Goals (reflection in the future tense).
  40. 40. Hands-on Activity & Reflection • When and how will your students prepare to share their best work with faculty or employers? • What type of resources could you share to support student showcase portfolios?
