Lenva Shearing, deputy Principal of Bucklands Beach Intermediate School, New Zealand, gave us a fabulous session on the pedagogy behind eLearning Portfolios and illustrated them with practical examples of her students’ work. If you are interested in learning portfolios (which all educators should be) then you must listen to the recording (see link below!). The New Zealand Curriculum Vision Statement states: “Students will need 21st century skills to enable them to be confident, connected, actively involved lifelong learners”. Her school’s vision is: “To educate, guide and mentor all students to become internationally minded lifelong learners.” With this great introduction and a general discussion of the pedagogy behind eLearning Folios, Lenva then used application sharing to share with the participants some examples of student work. Thanks Lenva for a great session.
