Tony Bates: Resources on e-portfolios

Tony Bates: Resources on e-portfolios | SteveB's Social Learning Scoop | 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."

Edit Photos Just Like In Photoshop: You CAN Do That On A Chromebook! ~ makeuseof | SteveB's Social Learning Scoop | Scoop.it

by Daniel Price


"Chromebooks are fantastic machines. As the quality of the apps in the Chrome Web Store improves they’re becoming increasingly capable of doing everything that your primary PC or Mac can do, but for a fraction of the cost. Their security, ease of use, and portability is rapidly making them a popular choice for schools, businesses, and university students – all of whom are taking note of their advantages.


"In the previous piece in this series we looked at how, contrary to some people’s opinions, Chromebooks can play Google Play movies and television shows when offline. The latest installment in our mini-series looks at the wide choice of high quality photo editors that are available to all Chrome users."

This eLearning Technology Compass provides another way to help you choose technology tools. Working from the inner circle towards the outer circle you will find

* Goals

* Competencies

* Performance Assessments

* Ring of Technologies

Under this visual you will also find a detailed table that lists:

* Desired Competencies

* Rationale

* Related Activities

* Potential Technologies

And the site also provides tutorials on many of the tools.

This is like a one stop shop that will help you find great tools to help students grow skills in the desired competencies.
