Teachers Guide on The Use of ePortfolios in Education

Teachers Guide on The Use of ePortfolios in Education | TEFL & Ed Tech | Scoop.it

Have you ever thought of teaching your students how to create an ePortfolio ? Well if you have not then it is about time to take the idea seriously. There are actually several reasons why you should encourage students to create their own ePortfolios but before we delve into them let me just briefly define what an ePortfolio is.

 

ePortfolio is an electronic journal where one collects evidence of their learning. It is the equivalent of the traditional pen and paper journals where we used to track our learning journey before technology takes over. ePortfolios can either be discipline specific or genrally open to the entire lifelong learning experience. We in education are interested in the first type.

 

The good thing about ePortfolios is that they help students reflect about their own learning.This reflection is a necessary mental process for developing critical thinking. Students no longer are just passive learners but rather actively participate in the improvement of their learning.

 

Read more, very interesting:

8 Great Free Educational Resources for Teachers

8 Great Free Educational Resources for Teachers | TEFL & Ed Tech | Scoop.it

It is really amazing how technology is transforming education and making it way easier and better than it used to be. If you are a digital immigrant like me (30 years old up), you would exactly not only know what I am talking about but also feel it. When I think back to those pen and pencil days when instruction used to take place in a boring classroom full of chalk dust and how hard and limited our access to information was, I know how lucky our students are to be living in this digital boom where unlimited knowledge is at their fingertips.

How Babies and Children Learn So Quickly « Annie Murphy Paul

How Babies and Children Learn So Quickly « Annie Murphy Paul | TEFL & Ed Tech | Scoop.it

Fascinating article on Slate by developmental psychologist Alison Gopnik:

“Everyone who spends time with children knows how incredibly much they learn. But how can babies and young children possibly learn so much so quickly? In a recent article in Science, I describe a promising new theory about how babies and young children learn and the slew of research that supports it. The idea is that kids learn by thinking like Nate Silver, the polling analyst extraordinaire at the New York Times.
