PRESENTER : Olga Morozan


DATE: January 10, 2015

A PORTFOLIO
is a collection of work developed across varied contexts over time, that can
advance learning by providing students and/or teachers with a way to organize,
archive and display pieces of work in an asynchronous online manner
(multi-types of content and formats).

Why Use An E-Portfolio?


Storage/Access of online information, hyperlinked with one another
so, users do not have to worry about losing or misplacing documents.
Multimedia: Once the student work is organized, users can add easily add
sound, pictures, graphics and video to the electronic portfolio.
Computer Skills: Students gain valuable computer skills while creating
and editing their portfolio.
Assessment: Electronic portfolios directly relate student work as an
evidence of learning to the defined standards or criteria.

HIGHLIGHTS OF EFL TEACHERS REFLECTIONS

Nicoleta: An e-portfolio is a digitized collection of most successful personal


and teachers' artifacts, presented through text, visuals, audio and video
formats, and used to provide evidence of information for a specific activity.

Natalia Rata: It is a personal space for learning in digital era. It is a


collection of evidence that shows our learning journey over time. It
communicates and showcases skills, experiences and learning.

Rodica Aculov: E-portfolio is "a visual record of ongoing learning that


fosters an autonomous way of thinking through reflection" both for personal
and professional reasons through updated post of individual work and
partnership collaboration.

HIGHLIGHTS OF EFL TEACHERS REFLECTIONS

Eduard Rudenco: E-Portfolios represent the "Voices of Teachers", as a tool


to promote their future goals and achievements, and also an excellent
device to naturally engage students.

Irina Pushney: It is a personal and professional "electronic identity", which


records "ones teaching philosophy or personal credo", providing multiple
learning literacies.

Dumitru Grusca: The most important things we need to take into account
when starting working with an E-portfolio: understanding the use, goals and
the benefits of a paper-based portfolio, which is quite similar to E-Portfolio.

HIGHLIGHTS OF EFL TEACHERS REFLECTIONS

Natalia Borta: As a digital collection, it is a purposeful and dynamic "learning


story", which engages students in "self-reflective, self-regulated process, leading
to the gradual release of responsibility for lifelong learning to the student".

Emma: An E-Portfolio is an asynchronic CV or Resume of educational and


professional goals , which continuously provides active learning anytime for
both students and professionals.

Aliona Bragaru: It helps to "contextualize the artifacts for a particular


audience, communicate our skills, experiences and learning" though oral
presentations, projects, compositions, reflections and self-evaluations, which
lead to collaboration and autonomy.

HIGHLIGHTS OF EFL TEACHERS REFLECTIONS

Katy: E-Portfolios as an alternative to paper-based portfolios became better


tools for instruction, "because they provide the opportunity to review,
communicate and give feedback in an asynchronous manner.

Viorica Gaidar: Through E-Portfolio "you pass through a personal growth".,


and "enhance group work competences by collecting, selecting, managing,
sharing and transmitting your reflections".

T YPES OF E-PORTFOLIOS

Developmental/Growth Portfolios: demonstrate the advancement and


development of student skills over a period of time. Developmental
portfolios are considered works-in-progress and include both selfassessment and reflection/feedback elements. The primary purpose is to
provide communication between students and teachers.

Assessment Portfolios: demonstrate student competence and skill for


well-defined areas. These may be end-of-course or program assessments
primarily for evaluating student performance. The primary purpose is to
evaluate student competency as defined by program standards and
outcomes.

T YPES OF E-PORTFOLIOS

Showcase Portfolios: demonstrate exemplary work and student skills. This


type of portfolio is created at the end of a program to highlight the quality of
student work. Students typically show this portfolio to potential employers to
gain employment at the end of a degree program.

Hybrids: Most portfolios are hybrids of the three types of portfolios listed above.
Rarely will you find a portfolio that is strictly used for assessment, development
or showcase purposes.

!!!Self-reflection is an important component of electronic portfolio development.


If you do not require participants to self-reflect on the artifacts they add to the
portfolio,
they will not gain from the rich learning experience that e-portfolio development can
provide!
