Resources on e-portfolios

Resources on e-portfolios | Education | Scoop.it

 

In education, a ‘portfolio’ refers to a personal collection of information describing, documenting and recording a person’s achievements and learning. Portfolios are used for many different purposes such as a tool for evaluating leaning, for accreditation of prior experience, for continuing professional development, to assist a job application, or for a certification of competences acquired through a course or from work experience . An educational portfolio is mainly used to encourage personal reflection and involves the exchange of ideas and feedback. Many people have already used some kind of portfolio. Most of them have built a portfolio to collect evidence required to get certificates or to show what they have learned in a concrete situation or training. The development of information and learning technologies has led to the development of digital portfolios or electronic portfolios, commonly referred as e-Portfolios".

More than 50 percent of students who have completed Algebra II in high school find themselves in a remedial math course in college. (Even 13 percent of those who complete Calculus do.) How can this happen?

Why learning management systems will probably go away

Why learning management systems will probably go away | Education | Scoop.it
I’d like to argue – and yes it is perhaps a case of wishful thinking – that there are reasons to suspect that learning management systems (LMSs) will probably go away. Or at the v...

Moushira Issa's curator insight, June 16, 2013 5:04 PM

Get recognition for learning that happens anywhere. Then share it in the places that matter.

Paula Iaeger PhD's comment, June 18, 2013 9:43 AM
This is one application of badges that cross generations and circumstances. When workers are offered recognition for the training they receive, there is a desire to know more. A simple certificate might help but a digital badge for its transportability is much better. In a classroom grades of course have their place but what I like is that the natural curiosity is rewarded when a badge is voluntarily pursued. Badges celebrate extra effort, not mediocrity and a just-get-by mentality.

 there a future for MOOCs in Europe? Will this historical movement in Open Education have a lasting resonance in the digital age? To what extent can MOOCs engage users socially? How well can they promote entrepreneurship education?

Back in Summer 2011 when I first began to notice the disruptive word 'digital' preceding the comfortable (though perhaps under-theorised) word 'humanities', the two together leading to capitalisation and the acronym DH, I was uncertain quite where...
