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

How to learn common core math standards?

This is the most common question, I observed the students usually have. We all know how to learn math, but what has to be done for learning math according to the common core standards. It’s quite organized once you follow it. Common core standards have…See More

How Do We Stop Illiterate Educators?

We are now better than fifteen years into the 21st Century and educators are still discussing what role technology plays in education. The fact of the matter is no matter what educators, who are mostly products of a 20th Century education, think, our students today will need to be digitally literate in their world in order to survive and thrive. Digital Literacy is a 21st Century skill, but therein lies the rub. Most of our educators have been educated with a twentieth Century mindset using…See More
