Whether you're a student, educator, executive or a scientist, Google offers online services and products that help everyone remain as productive as possible. There are many Google services that have come and gone through the years, but a few of them -- like Gmail, Google Drive and of course Google Search -- stay even more…

Apple is making it easier for schools to put iPads in classrooms - Engadget

Apple is making it easier for schools to put iPads in classrooms - Engadget | ePortfolios | Scoop.it
Apple's dreams of putting iPads in classrooms have run into a number of roadblocks, but one of the biggest is simply the amount of work involved -- each slate needs its own account, making it a nightmare if you want to outfit an entire school. That won't be a problem for much longer, however. Both MacRumors and 9to5Mac have discovered that Apple is ditching the requirement for individual IDs on school-supplied iPads as of this fall. Staff will just have to decide which devices get apps or books, letting teachers focus on the actual education instead of getting things running. They'll still have plenty of control, so kids can't load up on games and other distractions unless they get the green light. It's too soon to know if this will lead to more kids taking home tablets instead of textbooks, but there will at least be fewer barriers to making that happen.

5 Essential Questions About ePortfolios - Getting Smart by Susan Lucille Davis - edchat, EdTech, eportfolio

5 Essential Questions About ePortfolios - Getting Smart by Susan Lucille Davis - edchat, EdTech, eportfolio | ePortfolios | Scoop.it
You have - no doubt - tuned in to the buzz about ePortfolios. Digital portfolios certainly were the talk of ISTE 2012 in June.

This post provides links to resources for ePortfolios as well as asking five essential questions.

* Whose ePortfolio is it?

* Who will read the ePorfolio, and for what purpose?

* Who will curate and organize the materials of an ePortfolio?

* What shape will the ePortfolio take, and where should it be housed?

* What is the teacher's role?

When choosing to move in the direction of ePortfolios there are many questions that we need to answer. This post helps us begin to think deeply about issues that surround the use and management of ePortfolios.

So I would want to use the RTC in a cyclic and ongong matter too. So what might that look like in practice when it is captured and shared within an eportfolio? You could take an approach similar to this Mahara/MyPortfolio template.

A Place to Call Our Own: Personal, online learning spaces through eportfolios | ePortfolios | Scoop.it

Learning has been flipped on its head, with second-hand learning experiences now being converted to first-hand discovery experiences through experiential and problem-based learning. It is commonly recognized that learning no longer occurs only in classrooms; approximately 70 percent of learning occurs in the workplace and in the community as informal learning.

Teachers Guide on The Use of ePortfolios in Education

Teachers Guide on The Use of ePortfolios in Education | ePortfolios | 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.

Ten Reflective Questions to Ask at the End of Class - Brilliant or Insane

Ten Reflective Questions to Ask at the End of Class - Brilliant or Insane | ePortfolios | Scoop.it
How deep is your commitment to reflective practice?

Do you maintain a reflective journal? Do you blog? Do you capture and archive your reflections in a different space?

Do you consistently reserve a bit of time for your own reflective work? Do you help the learners you serve do the same?

I began creating dedicated time and space for reflection toward the end of my classroom teaching career, and the practice has followed me through my work at the WNY Young Writer’s Studio. I’ve found that it can take very little time and yet, the return on our investment has always been significant.

Really good practice for your ePortfolio.

Darrington Lee's curator insight, March 7, 2015 9:36 PM

I feel that it is generally important to reflect on one self after taking a lesson, this ensures we are learning on the right track and doesn't "fall off" the topic. Reflection keep us calm and collected, so we can stand back straight up even after a failure to accomplish something. This gives us a never ending space to improve and beyond than just learning, but also to persevere, take responsibility in one's learning and also to excel in things we do.

Sue Alexander's curator insight, March 9, 2015 1:54 PM

Reflection...don't leave class without it!

This is a great recommendation by Robin Good on graphics for Google Hangouts. Hangouts are taking off and using graphics to spruce up the hangout for calls to action or logo/display has great impliations for adding value. I will check this out and pass it along.

"Just a few years ago ePortfolios were all the rage with schools and employers. You couldn’t open an education or employment blog without reading tips for creating the best online ePortfolio so you could get into the school of your dreams and land your ideal job afterwards. But it seems the ePortfolio fad has died out or at least slowed down quite a bit as of late. So, what caused the flow of articles on ePortfolios to subside?"
