Barrett on ePortfolios

While researching how best to present the third aspect of my culminating MEd(TL) course – an ePortfolio covering specified topics – this Helen Barrett (2010) diagram and accompanying article has led me to realise that I’m going to need to create a dedicated site (Wiki or Weebly maybe) where my coalesced thoughts will be hyperlinked back to various objects and points of reflection that demonstrate my developing learning.

Balancing 2 Faces of ePortfolios.

Barrett’s article clearly identifies the two aspects of an ePortfolio:

“An ePortfolio (electronic portfolio) is an electronic collection of evidence that shows your learning journey over time . . . The key aspect of an eportfolio is your reflection on the evidence . . . it is more a combination of process (a series of activities) and product (the end result of the ePortfolio process). . .  The real value of an e-portfolio is in the reflection and learning that is documented therein, not just the collection of work.”

. . . upon reflection . . .

. . . upon reflection . . .
