Hi there, Our school is relatively new to E-portfolio but its a huge focus this year and I'm finding myself being drownwed by all the information and have lost all my confidence. Is there somewhere I can do to get support for this to have a play around without messing anything up? We are using it through Teacher dash board Hapara and I don't want my children losing out because I lack confidence. Hope I'm not alone! Thanks!
i am trying to organise using the e-portfolio idea with senior high school music classes.
at the moment I am thinking of using Evernote and Dropbox. Use Evernote notebooks as the primary location for work and feedback, and use Dropbox as a location for larger files, such as videos of performances etc.
has anyone tried this or something similar? What have you used?how successful has it been?
Hi there. we are just going into E portfolios at our school. I would like to know how schools have successfully integrated eportfolios into a Year One classroom? How do you manage the time taken on the e portfolio with young children?
I've been trialing using myPortfolio to support students inquiry learning in NCEA L1 Geography. Students have been using myPortfolio as both a textbook and a workbook with some good results.
I have written up the results of my action research here: http://myportfolio.school.nz/view/view.php?t=C0RJM9qPcpG5fjTZ6x8d
I am trialling e-portfolio's in my year 5/6 class. Our school has, for the past 5-6 years, replaced formal written reporting by paper portfolios. These have been an evoling collection of tests, samples, self assessments etc. Now I have been faced with translating this into an online envirnment. I can see that the paper version won't translate directly onto the web but will need to evolve furthur so that we are not just taking the paper version and scanning or photographing it into the digital version. So my question is... Is anyone else using e-portfolio at primary level as a report? How are you balancing the acountability with the different structure and scope of the online environment?
Are you using MyPortfolio in your school?
If so you may want to point your mouse at this collaborative Google Presentation for some great ideas and examples.
Don't forget to add your own ideas to the doc so it will collectively become a great resource for all.
Are you integrating eportfolios into learning and teaching?
