I am attending the Western AAEEBL conference in Salt Lake City Utah on ePortfolios. Helen Barrett was the lunchtime speaker and she provided a great deal of information which I have compiled in tweets at the #11WAAEEBL hastag. [To find those, go to Twitter and type that hashtag in the search box.] Barrett discussed 3 points that I want to note here:
- Label the eportfolio with an adjective so we know its purpose, e.g. learning eportfolio
- Mobile technology is important for future technologies
- Digital storytelling is more than entertainment; it’s also a method of learning
Those items have given me food for thought as I continue my journey to determine whether ePortfolios are solid assessment tool. I’ve discussed this a little bit in a previous post.
