Slides for breakout presentation

This presentation will focus on the two main approaches to ePortfolio development: portfolio as workspace (supporting learning and reflection) and portfolio as showcase (supporting assessment and self-marketing/employment). Dr. Barrett will provide a balanced framework for developing ePortfolios using mobile devices that support lifelong learning, with the essential elements of reflection and intrinsic motivation. We will explore the two conflicting paradigms of assessment according to Peter Ewing (Accountability vs. Improvement) as applied to ePortfolios
