Online “ePortfolios” are the new hot thing in education. Tracking student work through a semester or multiple years is all the rage and everyone wants to do it. With the introduction of cloud based storage systems it’s much easier to accomplish this (you used to need to have a network specialist on hand to manage the server). But how do you actually collect and display student work? There are now a dozen or so websites that offer services, but being the (wannabe) Computer Scientist, I wanna create and teach the students to create. But you need to start somewhere and general rules seem to be a good place.
April 10th – ePortfolios
Today is another cop out post, basically guiding you to a great article posted almost a year ago but floated to the top of my twitter feed with the year somewhat winding down. Edutopia is a blog devoted to, well, education and I often find myself getting lost clicking on article after article with plenty of good, useful information. 11 Essentials for Excellent ePortfolios is a great article by Vicki Davis that has an excellent website on the side. So enjoy the article and click around a bit on Edutopia, it’ll be well worth your time!
