When I first used ePortfolios for my TY classes I was a bit apprehensive – would it work? Would the students find it difficult to use? Would the teachers find it difficult to use? What could the students share with us using an ePortfolio? What I learned after year one was that all 147 students in TY managed just fine.
As well as being easy to use, OneNote has the ability to record students work in many ways including dictation and recording features allowing students to video their art/technology/practical work and record short videos explaining the process.
2. Click on ‘Class Notebook’ and create a class notebook for each class.
3. Add the students to the class so they now have access to the notebook.
4. Create the Sections for the students’ notebooks, ie. Work Experience, Core Subjects, Optional Subjects, Extra-curricular activities, Voluntary Work, Gaisce, Additional Modules undertaken, Visiting Speakers etc.
5. In the Content Library provide the students with a ‘How to Guide’ to demonstrate what you’d like them to do within each section.
Students ePortfolios can be assessed by teachers with ease. They can also be used on Graduation night to reveal to the parents how they have been encouraged to reflect on and learn from their experiences in TY.
