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.
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.”
