Online presence and professional narratives
E-portfolios generate learning because they provide an opportunity and virtual space for students to critically assess their academic work, to reflect on that work, and make connections among different courses, assignments, and other activities, such as work experience, extracurricular pursuits, volunteering opportunities, and more. – ePortfolios Explained: Theory and Practice. Centre for Teaching Excellence, University of Waterloo.
Generally, there are 3 types of e-portfolios: assessment, learning and career. While learner e-portfolios will help our students to develop deeper learning and a better sense of themselves, professional e-portfolios give teachers the tools needed to highlight and demonstrate their skills in a modern and unique way.
After all, a professional e-portfolio is a method of self-discovery and confidence building. So let us walk the talk and showcase our accomplishments with pride!
All teachers participating in this project are currently working on their e-portfolios, which they will publish next school year.
