tWe are well into our TLLP project now and are working our way through using 3 different electronic portfolio tools. The learning curve has been immense as we have had to personally develop familiarity with our respective eportfolio platforms and then share this learning with our students. In each of our classes we have gotten to the point where our students have uploaded materials to their own portfolios and we have begun the process of providing feedback in order to establish opportunities for student self-reflection. We are finding that it is important to revisit our initial goals for our project as it is so easy to get caught up in the tech issues.
Has anyone used electronic portfolios to promote student reflection and metacognition? We would love to hear about your experiences.
