Kimberly House's curator insight, August 11, 2014 1:57 PM

Very thorough guide to using, assessing and making ePortfolios happen. Plenty of tips and suggestions for which apps to use and how to digitise work. Nicely presented and easy to follow. Also does a good job talking about the 'why' of ePortfolios. This is the part I find some of my teachers struggle with.

Ness Crouch's curator insight, April 9, 8:40 PM

ePortfolios are a great way of collecting artefacts digitally. Have you tried this with your students? 

David Bell's curator insight, April 12, 7:26 PM

There are some great links about ePortfolios here. Well worth a look.

Technology is an immense tool that can transform the way students learn. One of my favourite quotes which demonstrates this comes from Steve Jobs:

"Staff Meeting.

 

There are often no more dreaded words in a teacher’s vocabulary than those. The time we all get together to hear the principal talk about due dates, important initiatives, and the increasing workload on our plate. The place where teachers show up with papers to grade, emails to send, and conversations to catch up on. The one thing sure to not be tackled is the true task of schools –  changing a teacher’s practice and improving student learning."
