ePortfolio - summary

Every student has a personalised site in which they can demonstrate control of their own learning Self-assessment of key skills is continual, with students also owning their own ambitions for improvement To achieve ambitions, students gain access to examples (over time) of how others have achieved their goals Students can store and display examples of their work, and provide access as required to others Students can benefit from active engagement in on-line study and focus groups Potential exists for ePortfolio to collate student’s achievements from more than one educational setting, and the work-place

ePortfolio and CIAG
Collation of achievement and evidence from more than one setting Future focus Enable youngsters to find out about their own ambition We can certainly look after the “Information” by making it accessible

Making quality information readily available. Careers information when the student decides. Schools can move away from Careers week. Gives the opportunity to make Careers part of the daily conversation.

Closing Remarks
Evolution not revolution! Technology can’t really solve the guidance issue It can only help to promote discussion
“ePortfolio can help by making information available to young people in an environment in which they are managing their personal skills and self development.”
