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. Chapter 6-Conclusions gives a concise overview of the case study plus his conclusions. ...electronic portfolios support formative assessment by encouraging dialogue between the student and teacher that focuses on improving student work and is not emotionally threatening. 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. All across the country one can find schools and school systems creating their own portfolio initiative. 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.

Aprendizajes Emergentes y Pedagogías Invisibles La Sociedad espera de nosotros un nuevo tipo de ciudadano cuyas dimensiones social y profesional integren con naturalidad lo virtual y lo analógico, con la certeza de que de lo más real que hay en nuestra vida es lo que vivimos en Internet. Y a su vez este tipo de ciudadano necesita de una nueva escuela donde aprender a gestionar una identidad híbrida. Además, y más que nunca, la escuela ha de ser un espacio para forjar ciudadanos movidos por el bien colectivo y con actitud crítica y no simplemente un edificio donde preparar trabajadores, porque igualmente las fronteras entre lo laboral y lo no laboral son cada vez más difusas. Pero basta con acercarse a cualquier centro educativo para comprobar que, en líneas generales, poco ha cambiado en los últimos 100 años: ni los espacios, ni las formas de organizarnos, ni el currículo, ni las metodologías, ni para qué y cómo usamos la evaluación,… ¿Nos vemos en La Coruña para seguir reflexionando?

a network perspective The three overlapping circles of the network learning model – social networks, communities of practice, work teams – have been described by Patti Anklam as three network types – connectivity, alignment, productivity. This makes sense, because in social networks we mostly connect, while in communities of practice we strive to find alignment between ideas and practice, and in our work teams we produce something of value. Patti goes on to describe the key tasks for ‘network builders’. Connectivity Network (social network) – “Weaving — Helping people make connections, increase ease of sharing information”Alignment Network (community of practice) – “Facilitating — helping people to explore potential shared identity and value propositions”Productivity Network (work team) – “Coordinating — helping people plan and implement collaborative action” Perceiving all three of these spaces as networks reinforces the principle that we cannot manage networks, only influence through our interactions.

[curso] Entornos Organizacionales de Aprendizaje: Construyendo la Escuela del S. XXI Desde Conecta13 seguimos trabajando para expandir el concepto de PLE. Nuestra nueva propuesta, en colaboración con Telefónica Educación Digital, es un curso gratuito en el que reflexionamos sobre la gestión del conocimiento en las organizaciones educativas partiendo de las ideas de los Entornos Personales de Aprendizaje. Sin duda la propuesta de Graham Attwell sobre los Personal and Organisational Learning Environments ha sido decisiva para trasladar las ideas que subyacen al concepto de PLE al contexto de las organizaciones. Attwell, junto con Serge Ravet, propone el acrónimo POLE para referirse a los Entornos Personales e Institucionales de Aprendizaje como aquellos ecosistemas que facilitan la interacción entre las actividades de aprendizaje informal de los miembros de la organización, gestionadas a través de sus respectivos PLEs, y los procesos de gestión del conocimiento de la propia organización. Una vez más, contamos contigo para vivir una experiencia de aprendizaje emocionante.
