11 Essentials for Excellent ePortfolios

11 Essentials for Excellent ePortfolios | E-Teaching | Scoop.it

"If done well, portfolios can aid students in metacognition (PDF), reflection, and ownership of learning (PDF). If done poorly, students and teachers may feel like portfolios are a waste of time. While some see portfolios as excellent qualitative measures instead of standardized tests, we know that the subjective nature of portfolio assessment can make it an unreliable comparison between schools.

 

You'll face 11 essential decisions in your pursuit of portfolio excellence."

Our students create portfolios for their culminating project for our E-Learning for Educators course. This excellent article by Vicki Davis provides good food for thought about how to create "excellent" portfolios.
Bibhya Sharma's curator insight, February 21, 7:17 PM

Excellent article. I must add that in employers in the future will want to see the ePortfolios of their potential employees. Students can have a definite headstart with their skills and knowledge detailed and practiced in their ePortfolios.

The Ultimate App Guide for Students – Infographic ~ EdTech & MLearning

The Ultimate App Guide for Students – Infographic ~ EdTech & MLearning | E-Teaching | Scoop.it
Studying is a necessary activity that few enjoy. The key to good study is organisation. An ad-hoc approach to studying may seem like you are getting things covered but in the long run you are likely to miss important topics. By taking a formatted and structured route to your study plan, you will likely be more relaxed and feel more prepared for examinations when they come around. With anything in life, accepting help is a good idea and in the case of studying, you can gain great help by utilising smartphone and tablet apps which will help to increase your efficiency. This guide from Study Medicine Europe gives a useful guide on apps that may enhance your studying efforts. Some are free and some are paid versions and they are split up according to different goals. Check it

Gordon Dahlby's comment, February 13, 6:12 PM
Looks more like a walk down an exhibit hall of vendors than skill/talent tied to teaching & learning.
Rod Murray's comment, February 13, 7:21 PM
If every teacher had this skill set, that would dramatically change teaching and learning. The "vendors" are, contrary to your suggestion, mostly free technologies that can and do change teaching and learning.
Richard Whiteside's curator insight, February 19, 5:10 AM

These and many other tools are available. But if you are a teacher, what do you think? Is it really necessary to have all these skills? There is so much content readily available online and if you can organise to prepare materials in teams, or have access to a PLN on or offline, then you can share the load. 

 

Some teachers and content creators have specific skills and their expertise can be used or accessed by anyone. Personally, I think it's good for teachers to be aware of the digital possibilities for their teaching context, but it is generally unrealistic for anyone to expect all teachers to become skilled in so many different areas. 

 

Is it not better to pick fewer areas more relevant to you and focus on them? Be a master of a few areas useful to you, not a jack of all trades feeling stressed that you are master of none.

I'm teaching a notetaking lesson next week using the Cornell system so this is a timely article. I haven't gotten into the visual notetaking since I"m NOT an artist so I'm skipping that but will encourage students to try it. Our notetaking will be mainly for research and I will include the citation for each article they take notes from on the Cornell note sheet.
