Conversation with my daughter -

Conversation with my daughter - | ePortfolios | Scoop.it

My daughter is in Year 12 and is studying graphics, media studies and art among other subjects. You should be getting the idea that she has a liking for visual design. We started an eportfolio for her at home in the hopes that it could be used to showcase her talents and gain entry to the courses she is interested in. With these subjects it just makes so much sense to use an ePortfolio. Well today I received a text that just made my heart sink.

 

I either need to approach the school and enlighten them :) or teach my daughter to make these suggestions herself.

 

It shouldn't be this hard though.

 

Heath

Relationships for learning: using pupil voice to define teacher−pupil relationships that enhance pupil engagement

Author: Helena Marsh:This paper is a summary of a pupil voice research project conducted to investigate the influence that teacher−pupil relationships have on pupils’ feelings of engagement with their school. The study involved two year groups (12−13 and 14−15 year olds) in a rural secondary school in Cambridgeshire. Data sources were collected through a questionnaire and follow-up focus groups and pupil interviews to explore pupils’ opinions and experiences of learning relationships and their impact. Findings include pupils’ identification of the features of effective teacher−pupil relationships and their perspectives on how these have a positive influence on their levels of motivation and engagement at school.

Perfect Teaching: Bachelorthesis - Mahara and teacher education

Bachelorthesis - Mahara and teacher education

The last few points are getting finalized, and then starting with the next term, a colleague and me are going to start to work on our Bachelor thesis, which will include a heavy dose of Mahara, and it's role in our teacher education at the University of Education Vienna.

Our Mahara-research project is in it's second year now, and we are getting more and more involved with Mahara as an ePortfolio tool for our student-teachers.

The thesis will include the basics of ePortfolios, what kind of portfolio types are there and how are they used. But our biggest focus will be on Mahara, not only on the technical part of it, but also the possibilities of its use.

Some of the data that’s available from our research project will also be processed, and we will focus on our teacher education. We are both very much looking forward to digging in and involving ourselves more and more into Mahara, ePortfolios and teacher-education at our University.

Digital Portfolio or Website?: Online Presence and Signalling

Digital Portfolio or Website?: Online Presence and Signalling | ePortfolios | Scoop.it

In Two Things to Consider When Developing an E-Portfolio, Kevin Currie-Knight talked about the two advantages of having a website as an academic: signalling and the unique presentation of materials. First, having any online presence is becoming increasingly important for signalling, otherwise we would not have this entire series of posts. More specifically than Facebook, LinkedIn, a blog, or even a personal website, Kevin wrote specifically about the advantages of an E-Portfolio (electronic portfolio, digital dossier, or whatever you want to call it). The digital portfolio has risen over the past few years as an increasingly common way of showcasing yourself for the job market, tenure-review, or even post-tenure review and as resistant as academia is to change, it will probably continue to gain popularity for good reason.
