* Julie Stephenson: firstname.lastname@example.org@cabarrus.k12.nc.us ya_literature * Katie Sparks: email@example.com@cabarrus.k12.nc.us mediasparkles * Mission Statement: We hope that this session will provide with new tools that you can take back and implement with your staff.
* 1. What strategies can best ensure that you will maintain an interest and commitment to the creation and upkeep of an e-portfolio? * 2. Who is the audience? What is the desired result of the interaction with the e-portfolio? Where will the portfolio exist online? * 3.How can the e-portfolio encourage teachers/students to reflect on their learning?
* 4. If you don’t use an e-portfolio, what will you use instead? Will it work for you? Will it be relevant in 5 years? * 5. Would there be benefits to your entire school using a single e-portfolio platform? Multiple platforms? * 6. What do you need to do to help administrators understand the value of your e-portfolio?
a digitized collection of artifacts, including demonstrations, resources, and accomplishments An e-portfolio is “a digitized collection of artifacts, including demonstrations, resources, and accomplishments that represent an individual, group, or institution” (Lorenzo and Ittelson 2005). person or organization has reflected Wall and Phillips adds that the e-portfolio is one in “which the person or organization has reflected […] a presentation to one or more audiences for a particular rhetorical purpose” (Dekson and Suresh, 22).
* Portfoliogen * Digication $ * Pathbrite * Taskstream $ * Epsilen * Edublog * Otherpeoplespixels $ * Weebly * Google Apps/Plus * Schoolwires * Live Binders Best options, in our opinion:
AdministratorsEducatorsStudents Support teacher for evaluation Archive classroom documents, extracurricular activities Comprise interactive components Advise staffUse as a reflective tool for professional goals/growth Use as a reflective and collaborative tool Write letters of recommendation Use to facilitate student advising Write letters of recommendation Platform for sharing with colleagues Platform for potential employers Platform for potential colleges/employers Maintain avenues of communication between administration and staff Maintain/build relationships with colleagues Impart training modules Track professional development outside the norm
* Sustainability * Marketing Tool * Sharing and Collaborating * Quick and Easy Maintenance (Once Established)
* Today’s options are adaptable * Embedded sites embedded (RSS feed, Social Icons, …) * More interactive than their predecessors.
* Potential cost * Time involvement * Lack of experience with specific platforms (learning curve for both user and administrator) * TF’s may need training to assist with troubleshooting * May not work with other information/technology systems (social media sites, student information systems, etc…) * Technology and Internet Issues (random outage) * Ability to capture/document rare moments or things that cannot typically be captured
* Choose your ePortfolio preferred site * Create a list of your essential questions, standards, or key features for the site (naming tabs, creating sections on ePortfolio) * Upload documents as needed * Make sure to share link with those who might benefit or want to see your portfolio
