  2. 2. The Problem: Drop-outs! Benchmark 2010
  3. 3. Requirement: Upskilling! “ By 2010 only 15 % of newly created jobs will be for people with basic schooling, whereas 50% will require highly skilled workers”. (EU Commission, 2005)‏ “ Half the EU workforce (some 100 million people) require upskilling, a gap that cannot be closed through classroom instruction alone, but will require e-learning scenarios”. (Urdan et al, 2005)‏
  4. 4. “ Every act of conscious learning requires the willingness to suffer an injury to one’s self-esteem. That is why young children, before they are aware of their own self-importance, learn so easily.” Thomas Szasz

  6. 6. MOSEP - Aims <ul><li>The age group of 14-16-year-olds will be familiarised with e-portfolio as a method for self directed and life-long learning. </li></ul><ul><li>Teachers will be traines to support young learners to identify and reflect on their strengths and improvement areas </li></ul><ul><ul><li>to better develop their skills and competences </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>to improve their self-presentation skills </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>to become aware of their potentials and in this way foster their self-esteem </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>to continue their school careers or vocational trainings </li></ul></ul>
  7. 7. 7 e-portfolio processes (G.Attwell 2007) <ul><li>Recognising Learning Learners frequently lack the skills to recognise their own learning, especially ongoing learning that does not necessarily lead to formal outcomes. </li></ul><ul><li>Recording Learning What should be recorded in a portfolio? </li></ul><ul><li>Reflecting on learning Giving meaning to the learning by reflecting on a meta-level </li></ul><ul><li>Validating learning Validating is the process of proving that learning has taken place, including the abilities and competencies identified and recorded. </li></ul>
  8. 8. 7 e-portfolio processes (G.Attwell 2007) <ul><li>Presenting learning Presenting offers an opportunity to select artefacts from the portfolio to tell a story or make a point. </li></ul><ul><li>Planning learning Planning is a structured form of reflection – looking back and looking forward. What have I achieved and what do I want to achieve? </li></ul><ul><li>Assessing learning Assessing is an external process, not within the control of the learner. Assessing is external judgement of the value of a set of artefacts presented by the learner. </li></ul>
