Eportfolio use in Schools: Webinar Resources

Eportfolio use in schools is alive and well both in helping students become creative and innovative thinkers, as well as helping student and experienced teachers learn how to use eportfolios to demonstrate their skills and experiences against their sector’s professional standards.

Jill Margerison, The Southport School, and Mary Gallagher, Australian Catholic University, both shared their use of eportfolios in schools as part of the ePortfolios Australia 2014 webinar series this week.

Jill shared how eportfolios are supporting participatory learning for middle school students through group work using the “Group” function of the Mahara eportfolio tool. Jill’s students are also using their eportfolio to express their innovation and creativity through showcasing their learning via their eportfolio.

Mary shared how eportfolios are supporting student teachers demonstrate how they can meet the professional requirements for the Teaching Quality Institute (TQI) in the Australian Capital Territory to gain their teacher registration.  TQI also are supporting the on-going use of portfolios for experienced teachers by providing a Mahara eportfolio profile for all teachers.
