The Tech Curve: On Varieties of Electronic Portfolios

The Tech Curve: On Varieties of Electronic Portfolios | teaching with technology | Scoop.it

Portfolios in education have been around for some time, and I think the term has developed a number of meanings depending on the educators or students purpose. In this video, one of my students talks about three varieties of digital portfolios and because of how we have implemented their collection, how a student can move easily from one form to the next. The three types discussed are:

1) The portfolio as "Catch-All" where all the students work is collected.
2) The Educational portfolio that emphasizes pieces of work the teachers is looking for.
3) The Showcase portfolio where students can manage and select examples of their best work.

Tweeting for teachers: how can social media support teacher professional development? | Pearson Centre for Policy and Learning

Tweeting for teachers: how can social media support teacher professional development? | Pearson Centre for Policy and Learning | teaching with technology | Scoop.it

 In the current constrained financial climate, this type of low cost, self-directed teacher development is interesting. Might the spread of such informal, peer-based, online CPD help to support the drive to raise teaching standards at minimal cost? This report explores this question, focusing on:

• how teachers and other educators are currently using social media to aid their professional development, and what they and their students gain from it;

• what evidence there is for the benefits of peer-to-peer teacher CPD, and for using social media in this way; and

• what teaching can learn from industry in this respect.

Drawing on emerging academic research in this area, and on the experience of trailblazing teachers, it recommends ways in which school leaders and policymakers can exploit the benefits of social media for effective and affordable teacher professional development.

A great site where you can collaborate with an online whiteboard. Invite other by giving them the page link and see then their drawings in real time. Upload images, chat and embed the whiteboard on your site. Your whiteboards are automatically saved for you to return to later. I'm excited by the possibilities of this site!
