An electronic portfolio (also known as an eportfolio, e-portfolio, digital portfolio, or online portfolio) is a collection of electronic evidence assembled and managed by a user, usually on the Web. Such electronic evidence may include inputted text, electronic files, images, multimedia, blog entries, and hyperlinks. E-portfolios are both demonstrations of the user's abilities and platforms for self-expression, and, if they are online, they can be maintained dynamically over time. Some e-portfolio applications permit varying degrees of audience access, so the same portfolio might be used for multiple purposes. E-portfolios also help to foster an independent and autonomous way of thinking, according to Strivens. An e-portfolio can be seen as a type of learning record that provides actual evidence of achievement. Students have been taught to create digital identities using presentation software or tools to create web pages. Types Usage Services See also

MAPS - Managed Assessment Portfolio / ePortfolio | Delivering solutions that evidence skills and capabilitiesEdu-portfolio.org : Votre portfolio électroniqueThe Paperless ClassroomNew York, NY — Many tasks that used to require pen and paper are done in digital form these days. To-do lists are entered in mobile phones, e-tickets replace paper slips, personal finances are sorted on laptops and tablets. One New York City teacher is on a quest to rid her classroom of paper – thousands of pieces per year – and she’s doing it with new devices and the adoption of an education-based, social media platform. Rachel Fein, a ninth-grade social studies teacher at the High School for Arts, Imagination and Inquiry in Manhattan, convinced officials there to purchase nearly three dozen devices that enable students to get and complete assignments without touching a pencil or paper. She says it wasn’t easy and took some convincing, but this week her students unboxed 34 Google Chromebooks. A combination of the Chromebooks and Edmodo, a social learning network for teachers and students, will replace older technology and thousands of printed pages per month, Fein said.

Educator Connection: Flipped Classroom Resources from the Teach 100 (by Jackie Gerstein)“I don’t do teaching for a living. I live teaching as my doing . . . and technology has increased my passion for doing so.” Dr. Jackie Gerstein believes that an important role and responsibility of the 21st century educator is to share resources, ideas, and instructional strategies with others. She tweets @jackiegerstein and blogs at User Generated Education (Teach 100 blog, #29) The Flipped Classroom has jumped onto the education radar in recent years as a way to potentially alter pedagogical and instructional practices by utilizing emerging technologies. The time spent on lecturing and lessons is literally “flipped” with the time spent on homework and projects. A lot of discussions have occurred, presentations have been made, and blog posts have been written about the flipped classroom: how to implement it; its potential to change educational outcomes and/or why it may not; it’s “fad” status; how it favors students of privilege; and so on.

J'ai commencé ma présentation par définir le contexte... Référence et lien pour ce rapport: Thivierge (2011). En gros, j'ai présenté 3 raisons principales pour lesquelles je crois que l'on devrait intégrer les réseaux sociaux au niveau des Cégeps.

Raison 2: Parce qu'il y a plusieurs choses à apprendre qui sont importantes et que les jeunes peuvent apprendre en utilisant les réseaux sociaux.

12 Characteristics Of An iPad-friendly ClassroomImplementing iPads isn’t exactly a just-add-water proposition. While they’re wondrous little devices capable of enchanting learners for hours, to get the learning results you’re likely after will take planning, design, and reflection.
