I am just getting started using ePortfolios with my high school students.  We are setting up Weebly webpages as a place to showcase and document students' assignments as evidence of their learning.  Has anyone experienced any pros or cons to using ePortfolios with high school students?

hi, I thought I would share my presentation slides with you as I mentioned them here a while ago. You can see it here: http://www.slideshare.net/teresamac/llas-2012

It was a large scale pilot with 100 students submitting a mahara e-portfolio through moodle. Students found it a useful exercise in reflection and transferable skill acquisition.

Thanks Daniel for your quick response.  I want to go digital because I want my kinders to have an audience that can respond and give feedback to them on their work. It very motivating for them to share their work with others.  We can post videos, recording, drawings, really there is no limit on what can be posted.  I started a class blog and twitter last year and the parents loved it. Parents like to see what their kids are doing at school plus they can talk about it at home that night instead of what did you do at school today nothing! I am just taking it  to 21st century.

Hi Tanya,

what about Wordpress? It is pretty common, relatively easy to use and with the custom post type plugin you can add further ePortfolio functions. I wouldn't know if Kindergartens can deal with it, though.

It's interesting to see ePortfolio make its way into (very) earyl education - what are the driving forces that make you want to go digital with the kids' portfolios? Do you have any opinions of parents about this?

I am creating eportfolios in September with my Kindergartens and I am looking for some feedback on which blog platform to use. The idea is that on our class blog, each child would have one page where he/she would post.  Any recommendations?

Thanks

Do Educators Eat Their Young?

Many years ago I read an article in Time Magazine where they attempted to select and rank the most difficult jobs in the US. The criterion that was used was based on the number of decisions that had to be made on that job in a single day. I was delighted and surprised to see that an Eighth Grade English Teacher position was ranked at the top of the list. As an eighth grade English teacher at the time, I felt both validated and appreciated. Of course, it was an article totally overlooked by most…See More
