Creating an ePortfolio for TY on iPad
ePortfolios are a way of storing evidence of a student’s learning and skills they’ve developed. Learners create a digital repository allowing them to insert a wide range of media to evidence and reflect on their learning, making the process more interesting and accessible to all students.
“To encourage and support the use of ePortfolios for teachers. - Collaborate with the Teaching Council, and other relevant professional bodies for teachers, in the use of ePortfolios in teacher CPD provision.”
In my opinion, the iPad has the tools to help teachers to unleash every student’s creativity and has the CPD resources to support teachers. Through the Everyone Can Create curriculum, TY students can develop the skills they need to express themselves through music, drawing, photo and video using the native apps on iPad.
2. Create and share a simple template that can be easily followed and manipulated by the students with sections for work experience, core subjects, optional subjects, voluntary work, achievements/courses undertaken, etc.
3. Students can use the iPads native apps to take pictures, create videos, animations, podcasts, original scores, record voice memos and presentations to document their learning. Or even photograph written work and upload it.
4. Provide your students with a ‘How to Guide’ to demonstrate how you want them to fill in their ePortfolio.
5. Students can then use the collaborative features built into the Apple apps to invite their teacher to view their ePortfolio.
