Part Two - Collecting Evidence

 

Student Dialog About ePortfolios

Brian: Hey guys, what's up?

Sage, Deena, Lori: Hi, Brian!

Sage: Check out Lori's new laptop!

Brian: Cool. What are you doing?

Lori: Well, I'm working on my ePortfolio.

Brian: ePortfolio? What's that?

Sage: An ePortfolio is like a Web-based collection of information about yourself.

Brian: I see . . . kind of like an online resume?

Lori: I guess you could think about it like that. But my ePortfolio is a class assignment, so I'm supposed to show evidence of what I have learned.

Deena: Yeah, I've got to do an ePortfolio too! Seems to be a pretty popular assignment this semester.

Sage: So how do you get started?

Lori: First, you think about your experiences and accomplishments.

Brian: All of them? Man, that would take forever.

Deena: No Brian, not all of them. You pick the important ones and go from there.

Lori: Deena's right, Brian. You only put significant items in your ePortfolio. I'm going to pick the top five for mine.

Brian: I get it.

Sage: So how do you choose the top five?

Deena: Are you going to list the hot dog eating contest you won?

Lori: Of course not! Eating 50 hot dogs in 20 minutes isn't what I want people to remember about me.

Deena: Sorry, I couldn't resist kidding you about that.

Lori: I know, no worries. I have to think about how I want to be perceived before I decide which items to include.

Sage: I get it. You're kind of creating your "on-line" presence!

Lori: Exactly! You guys want to see what I've collected so far?

Deena, Sage: Sure!

Brian: I'll be a minute...
