Teacher Action Research on ePortfolio Implementation Last week, I was the external examiner on a Masters Thesis entitled, ELECTRONIC PORTFOLIOS: TOOLS FOR SUPPORTING THE TEACHER’S NEED FOR ASSESSMENT AND THE STUDENT’S NEED FOR DEEP LEARNING. I was given permission to post his final thesis. "The intent of this study was to examine how qualitative assessment in the form of electronic portfolios could be conducted to engage students in their learning." This action research focused on a small (N=12) group of mostly First Nations students in northern British Columbia, and was conducted by their teacher in his grade 11/12 Comparative Civilizations course over the 2009-2010 school year. I found this study to be enjoyable to read, although a little repetitive. ...electronic portfolios support formative assessment by encouraging dialogue between the student and teacher that focuses on improving student work and is not emotionally threatening. As part of his definitions, he further defined deep learning for his work: Nicely done!

Blank A portfolio is a collection of work that has undergone a process of selection, reflection, and revision. I believe these 3 key components are critical when thinking about portfolios, especially writing portfolios. Over the last 2 decades there has been a push to use portfolios to assess student writing. I think that the e-portfolio makes sense. On this page you will find various resources to help you get started with e-portfolios in your own classroom.

Ray Tolley's Demo eFolio : eFolio Notes If you've reached this page on our website, you've likely arrived here as the result of some error. In July of 2012, we undertook a branding change and converted the product known as eFolioWorld to myeFolio. As such, the content in individual eFolioWorld accounts was not changed, but instead the location of our hosting environment AND the name of our product and subsequent URLs did change. The cut-over to myeFolio was completed on July 6th at 3:00 p.m. If you had an eFolioWorld site and are attempting to find it, please check your URL and be certain that you've replaced eFolioWorld with myeFolio in the address (for example, login.efolioworld.com is now login.myefolio.com; and johndoe.efolioworld.com is now johndoe.myefolio.com).

LA RED DE APRENDIZAJE PERSONAL (PLN) juandon He notado una tendencia nueva y emocionante últimamente con las redes de aprendizaje personal (PLNs). Hasta la fecha el avance del PLN ha pasado algo como esto. 1) Unirse Las personas orgánicamente desarrollan sus PLNs cuando se selecciona para participar en los medios sociales como Twitter, Facebook, blogs, ya través de redes de aprendizaje como el aula 2.0. 2) que está al acecho Una vez que un miembro de una comunidad en línea, ver la gente en general para tener una idea de cómo funcionan las cosas y consumir información. 3) Conversar A continuación se mueven las personas en unaconversación por retweeting, en respuesta a la discusión, comentando en los blogs, que conecta a cara frente a la construcción de las conversaciones en curso, etc 4) Poner en marcha / Creación A veces la gente se mueve al inicio de la conversación por Twitter, a partir de los debates, el lanzamiento de blogs o redes de aprendizaje, a partir de conferencias (es decir, Educon, EdCamp), etc Wow!

Tom Vander Ark: How Social Networking Will Transform Learning There are plenty of theories about how to improve education. Most focus on what appear to be big levers--a point of entry and system intervention that appears to provide some improvement leverage. These theories usually involve 'if-then' statements: 'if we improve this, then other good stuff will happen.' Leading theories focus on people, schools, policy and community. Nonprofit ecosystems develop around theories, they ebb and flow with foundation interest. You could add 'data' to the lever list, but given the wide recognition of its importance, better data is usually incorporated into strategies in each category. One problem not addressed by these theories is the lack of innovation diffusion in education--a good idea won't cross the street. In other sectors, platforms have proven to be a big lever: iTunes for music, Wal-Mart for consumer goods, Windows for computers. I'm betting on social learning platforms as a lever for improvement at scale in education.
