Keeping track of learning through review, target setting and action planning e-Profiles – supporting personal development learning and information, advice and guidance
●You may use this set of slides to plan an introduction to other staff in school about how to introduce and use the e-Profile templates and explore how it will develop. ●A couple of other examples of types of profile are also included, from other sources. ●You may use as many or as few slides as you wish. ●You may hide slides, you may delete slides or you may add new slides to suit your purpose. ●This is a read only document. So when you open it from the CD, and before you make changes, you must save it to your hard disc under another name. ●Delete or hide this green instruction slide before using the presentation. How to use this PowerPoint presentation
Purpose of the session To introduce the idea of e-Profiles as a means to: ●developing the skills of a reflective learner and support independent learning ●contributing to the development of e-mature learners ●providing support for guidance activities ●creating a whole-school strategy, providing easy access for all pupils to record and review progress. During the session participants will: ●have the opportunity to look at and explore the proposed new electronic e-Profile ●explore the ways to adapt the system to the needs of our school ●have considered issues of progression from Early Years to Post-16.
What do we want to achieve? ●To encourage practitioners to find ways of evaluating the impact of personal development learning on students’ thinking and action, linked to the five outcomes of Every child matters – that all children and young people: –be healthy –stay safe –enjoy and achieve –make a positive contribution –achieve economic well-being. ●To create a replacement for the Progress File that reflects the move to helping students to develop as e-mature learners.
Expectations for pupils ●Pupils should talk and write about their opinions and explain their views. ●An e-Profile helps pupils to recognise and value what they have learned, know how they are progressing and set targets for the future. ●Self and peer assessment: –is first hand –expects pupils to take more responsibility for their learning –helps increase motivation –makes a positive impact on achievement.
Pupils as reflective learners – maintaining a record of achievement and involvement It is used to: ●collect evidence for a presentation about their learning ●involve pupils in taking responsibility for their own learning – targets and planning ●provide a record as a transition tool between classes or schools ●provide a pupil perception of the impact of the PDL programme. What is the purpose of creating an e-Profile?
Helping children and young people to: be healthy, stay safe, enjoy and achieve, make a positive contribution, and have economic well-being. Extended schools Extra-curricular activities Outdoor education, eg: Trailblazers Making sense of personal development learning Study support Drugs education, including alcohol and tobacco Personal, social, health and economic education (PSHEE) Sex and relationships education Healthy schools Work-related learning Enterprise education Financial capability Individual learning plans (ILP) and e-Profiles e-Profile and portfolio – assessment, recording and action planning Careers education and guidance Functional skills Communication Numeracy ICT Working together Improving own performance Problem solving Physical education Religious education Education for sustainable development Citizenship and rights, respect and responsibility Personal learning and thinking skills: team worker self-manager independent enquirer reflective learner creative thinker effective participator Social and emotional aspects of learning (SEAL)
What ideas are there to guide our thinking? ●SEAL (social and emotional aspects of learning) – providing a primary focus. ●Personal, learning and thinking skills – a QCA secondary focus. ●The ICT curriculum requirements – to teach the use of PowerPoint (PPT). Also … ●The move, nationally, to improve Assessment for Learning.
Social and emotional aspects of learning SEAL offers a whole-curriculum framework for teaching social, emotional and behavioural skills to all children and is organised into seven themes, which can be covered within a school year: ●new beginnings ●getting on and falling out ●say “no” to bullying ●going for goals! ●good to be me ●relationships ●changes.
A framework of personal, learning and thinking skills The framework comprises six groups of skills that are essential to success in learning, life and work. The titles of the six groups of skills are set out below and it is these skills that will enable young people to enter work and adult life confident and capable: ●self-managers ●creative thinkers ●independent enquirers ●reflective learners ●team workers ●effective participators.
As reflective learners Young people: ●assess themselves ●set goals ●review progress ●invite feedback ●evaluate experiences and learning ●communicate their learning for different audiences.

So how is a PPT e-Profile going to help? It is: ●a basis for reflecting on and reviewing learning and action planning ●a means of holding and accessing personal information ●a means of presenting oneself and one’s skills, qualities and achievements to others ●a means of collecting and selecting assessment evidence, including examples of coursework, results and achievements ●a guidance tool to support review, choice and transition.
Things to be considered ●Purpose: Who is it for? What is it for? What do we want it to do? ●Support and guidance: Does it support overall learner development, such as that encountered in PDL? ●Protocols on managing information: Issues of confidentiality of information. ●Functionality: How are the PPT functions used to best effect? ●Form and feel: How does the process look and feel in use? What do its outputs look like?
Summary of outputs The process: ●focuses on and promotes the needs and interests of learners ●takes account of learners’ diverse purposes in learning ●encourages learners to reflect on and recognise their own progress and achievement, to increase their confidence ●promotes and supports learner self-assessment, peer assessment and dialogue about learning and achievement between learners and tutors/mentors ●enables both the achievement of planned learning objectives and learning outcomes not specified at the outset to be recognised and valued.
Addressing whole-school issues for implementation
Getting started – Storyboarding This is an example of a storyboard that pupils design about the things they want to include in their e-Profile PowerPoint.
