The Me-TV Trend [Need To Know: SXSWi] As we all begin to look forward to the interactive section of South By South West in March, PSFK has identified five key trends that readers should be monitoring during the festival.

Portfolio Reflection Organizing the core elements of my professional life as an educator into a single comprehensive document, structured as a professional portfolio, has truly been a growth experience for me. All of the thoughts, ideas, passions, and perspectives were in my head somewhere, but it was both challenging and rewarding to examine them in depth and state them in so many words. The portfolio itself was originally created as part of the Master of Arts in Teaching and Learning program at Nova Southeastern University, which I completed in 2003. Since then, I have continued to grow as a professional educator. This growth is reflected by the updated artifacts and professional portrait information.

An e-portfolio is a purposeful aggregation of digital items – ideas, evidence, reflections, feedback etc, which ‘presents’ a selected audience with evidence of a person’s learning and/or ability.Sutherland and Powell (2007) If portfolios are ‘simply a collection of documents relating to a learner’s progress, development and achievements’ (Beetham 2005) then e-portfolios could be defined as simply digital collections of these documents. However, ideas of what an e-portfolio ‘is’ are complex and to an extent the definition and purpose will vary depending on the perspective from which a particular person is approaching the concept. Consensus is beginning to grow as experience of e-portfolios develops which will help converge these different ideas and definitions. Essentially then, an e-portfolio is a product created by learners, a collection of digital artefacts articulating learning (both formal and informal), experiences and achievements.
