Los datos de la nueva encuesta de WICHE Cooperative for Educational Technologies (WCET) son categóricos: la educación a distancia sigue creciendo en Estados Unidos y en el 2014 uno de cada cuatro alumnos en educación superior llevó al menos un curso bajo esta modalidad y uno de cada siete (14%) cursó una carrera exclusivamente a distancia. Mientras que la matrícula en educación superior cayó en 2% entre el 2012-2014, la matrícula exclusiva bajo la modalidad a distancia creció en 9%.

Tony Bates: Resources on e-portfolios

Tony Bates: Resources on e-portfolios | Media and Information Literacy for Next Gen | Scoop.it

Tony Bates:

 

"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."
