Digital portfolio day
Funny. Today is Digital portfolio day:
Sebastian Fiedler comments on The Electronic Portfolio Boom:
Right on, David. Why should electronic portfolios contain only the polished, completed products of a learner? Why shouldn't they also document the struggles of individual knowledge construction?
Then my referers page brings the answer: Building Digital Portfolios in On-line Distance Education course, which requires students to prepare digital portfolio that "consists of both of collection finished tasks and of a learning journal - a weblog that each student keeps through the course".
It worth checking for the collection of links about digital portfolios and weblogs in education. I didn't check all of them, but at least one is going to be printed tomorrow: Blogs: Personal e-learning spaces (.pdf):
this report seeks to understand what the blog "revolution" is about, and whether it has application in learning and teaching. It was also nice to find link to my own post in the reading list :)
