I would use the e portfolio for students to put their recipes and pictures of their food on it and share it with their friends and family members

Reasons for e-portfolio:

Can present work using different learning styles e.g. Create Videos showing understanding of concepts, using different presentation skills online to show new innovations instead of using old PowerPoint. Can then be embedded on the blog as par to presentation and song new technology.


A variety of media
To enable access to parents so they can understand learning better
To show the learning journey as well as the final product
More a part of your learning
Accessible anywhere for comment and feedback
An engaging format to work in

Easy to access for parents/students/teachers
Student voice
To use in place of mid year reports as others schools have (perhaps)
Moving away from generic worksheets or reflections

Why use eportfolio

use eportoflio instead of reports
instead of wkik

Why use eportfolio

- authentic audience
- increases ICT skills
- broader audience- option to be more selective

Our thoughts are "Why does it need to be public?"

To share learning with parents, family. To increase the partnership between child, parent and school rather than a closed forum.

Reflection can be achieved in a variety of ways through audio, video and text. This is a fabulous way to encourage all students, regardless of age and abilities.
