Moderator (Peggy George): Great to see you Tammy! Are your fingers all warmed up for the closed captioning?


Moderator (Peggy George): we are so lucky to have Tammy doing closed captioning for our sessions!


Tammy Moore: lol. it always takes about 5 minutes of typing before they feel close to fluid. :)


Moderator (Peggy George): I know what you mean!


Tammy Moore: I am not very fast nor as accurate as I would like to be, but at least if we do have anyone wanting to view the sessions that cannot hear they will have something. :0)


Moderator (Peggy George): it is such a valuable service!! thank you!


Tammy Moore: yw :)


Moderator (Peggy George): if any of you are unable to hear the music when you click on play, please use the audio setup wizard so you won't miss out when Helen begins!

Kathie Lewis to Peggy George, Helen Barrett: If I don't need the playlist screen, I'm not worried about getting it back. Thanks.


Moderator (Peggy George): that's so funny Tammy!!


Ali in Montreal: Huge community ;-)


Tammy Moore: It is true. We watched 6 deer in the yard about 50 feet from our bedroom window yesterday as they casually nibbled the grass.

Artie: Artie O'Connor in Groton, MA 34 miles from Boston. temps today in the low 50's so I'm staying for a while.

Jason Epstein: is there a way to zoom out so that we can see everything?


elptuxman (El Paso TX): pls resize


dwilson: how do I get the slides, i had them before we started


Jonathan Wylie: yes, very big


Deb from MN: upper left corner - click magnifying glass


durff: how many of us had to create those?


chamada: @Jason at the top of the app sharing window, a zoom out button appears.


Jason Epstein: thanks


Sylvianne: how many students go and lose them half-way through too :(


Paula Naugle: Thanks for the info on sizing.


kyteacher: Thanks for sizing info!


Jason Epstein: My school is in the infancy of implementing this process


chrislittle: What kind of open source tools are there for e-portfolios?


Deb from MN: Today it's slow Internet access..ha.


kyteacher: Determined to do some of this with my students this year.


Jason Epstein: Adobe Acrobat has a great portfolio tool


Fred Haas: @Sylvianne - that is the advantage of using the electronic, especially webapps.


Deb from MN: Love Acrobat!


chrislittle: the app windo sure is exciting today!


durff: Japan has cheaper broadband that is 8 to 30 times faster than in the USA


LangLabCindy: what's the adobe tool called?


jackiegerstein: My new favorite tool for e-portfolios - http://livebinder.com/


Jason Epstein: It is actually in acrobat


Mark Spieglan: View/Layouts/Narrow Minimal


altruist21: Anyone else using Mahara (the open source package) for E-portfolios? I have it working alongside my Moodle


Valaina 1: Is this presentation available somewhere


Jonathan Wylie: livebinder is good


Moderator (Lorna Costantini) to Peggy George, Helen Barrett, Lorna Costantini: Adobe acrobat


Paula Naugle: @jackie Just started using livebinders myself.


LangLabCindy: thanx @jackiegerstein for the links!


kyteacher: http://www.slideshare.net/eportfolios/classroom20


Sabine: The screen is changing all the time now it is collapsed again


3rd grade teacher: Our system uses sharepoint. We are just beginning to use the student web pages to create portfolios. This is great information.


Jason Epstein: I know one of my teachers is looking at Digication. Anyone have experience?


chrislittle: can the kids manipulate sharepoint?


jackiegerstein: Sure LangLabCindy


chamada: @chrislittle if you give them design privilege


3rd grade teacher: Yes. They can upload pieces to sharepoint.


durff: @3rd grade our sharepoint is faculty only


Moderator (Kim Caise 4) to Peggy George, Helen Barrett, Lorna Costantini, Kim Caise 4: i am finally in and can talk/hear


Sabine: anyone using schoolfusion


chrislittle: nice wordcloud!


3rd grade teacher: Each of our students has his/her own sharepoint page.


chamada: @3rdgrade what are you using in sharepoint? Blog, wiki?


chamada: @3rdgrade Public or Private? Would love to see an example.


Mark Spieglan: App share keeps resizing; does each participant affect others?


MB: Wow! Sharepoint! Where are you?


chamada: Follow the slides on your own @ http://www.slideshare.net/eportfolios/classroom20


Lisa Carothers 1: Our district (Waunakee, WI) has used SharePoint but is now moving to Moodle, which is free, but requirea a tech person to maintain it


LangLabCindy: @Lisa - why the change from SharePoint?


Barbara: Thanks for providing the slides on Slideshare.


3rd grade teacher: The individual sharepoint sites were created last year. Our students create powerpoints and other programs to create projects. Our tech teacher has them upload pieces. We are Trussville City Schools in Alabama


Deb from MN: @chamada - that works well.


Lisa Carothers 1: Partly cost, but partly because SharePoint is much more business oriented. Moodle is intended for the educational environment.


Jason Epstein: This is a great graphic! May I show it and share it with my staff Dr. B?


Fred Haas: There are so many freely available tools, making it really hard to justify shelling out a whole lot of money to accomplish an eportfolio.


chamada: @LangLabCindy Sharepoint is limited. Difficult to embed into sharepoint wikis or blogs, for example


carole Seubert: interest point...traditional assessment skills cannot capture development of 21st centure skills


chrislittle: Does anyone know the legal aspects of storage on sites like google of graded student work?


Jen Forsyth - Woodstock,GA: I just lost sound - anyone else?


chrislittle: my sound is fine


Jason Epstein: all still good on my end Jen


sroseman: Is there a best free tool for eportfolios that you can recommend?


kyteacher: KY requires student writing portfolios, want to expand those to include digital skills, etc.


Sylvianne: mine's fine


Carlos38205: mine as well


Jen Forsyth - Woodstock,GA: thanks - will re-enter :(


Barbara: LIke stressing "Choice and Voice" - Thanks Helen


Kim Flack: can you share your blog site?


Moderator (Lorna Costantini): @ Jen lag time stay


Barbara: Great slides - May I embed this slideshow for teachers in My eCoach? This is Barbara Bray


Pilar: ning.com is a good "academic MySpace"


Fred Haas: @Barbara the slides are available on SlideShare and embeddable.


LangLabCindy: @kyteacher - required how? what do they have to do?


Moderator (Lorna Costantini): Helen's blog http://electronicportfolios.org


chrislittle: I love ining


Kim Flack: i love that!!


Jason Epstein: Dr. Barrett, I would like to ask the same embed question for my blog. With your permission.


kyteacher: Like academic MySpace ... so much negativity attached to word portfolio in my area


chamada: @Fred But copyrighted, not CC


Carlos38205: @Pilar I agree with you


3rd grade teacher: I am relatively new to 3rd grade. During the past few years I have been focusing my lessons on creating digital products for home and school. My new goal is using their individual sharepoint sites.


jackiegerstein: I set up a Ning for a college class so students can have an academic Facebook page - these traditional college students took to it immediately

Maureen(bcdtech): Love this slide!


chrislittle: ning is great for video too, not just writing


Pilar: @jackiegerstein. I did the same with NING for a college class and over 70 students were able to join, customize and add blogs BEFORE I got a chance to post any instructions.


chrislittle: and ning is a good way for cooperative projects between schools


Maureen(bcdtech): My head of school said we were to start portfolios- and when I asked - what does that mean? I never got an answer.


kyteacher: @LangLabCindy Portfolios have been part of KY's assessment since the early 90s ... students required to submit a variety of writing pieces in elem, mid, and high school.


Barbara: Great cartoon!


Moderator (Kim Caise 4) to Peggy George, Helen Barrett, Lorna Costantini, Kim Caise 4: slides are uploaded


3rd grade teacher: Sharepoint can be modified to meet the needs of schools.


Moderator (Lorna Costantini) to Peggy George, Helen Barrett, Lorna Costantini, Kim Caise 4: think it is better to keep gong


Maureen(bcdtech): Love it!


Moderator (Kim Caise 4) to Peggy George, Helen Barrett, Lorna Costantini, Kim Caise 4: i agree


kyteacher: Love using Ning with students.


Moderator (Kim Caise 4) to Peggy George, Helen Barrett, Lorna Costantini, Kim Caise 4: i can do the closing with the uploaded slides


carole Seubert: Got to use this at our next professional development gathering!


Jason Epstein: at least they are speaking about the elephant in the room! Most schools wont do that!


Moderator (Kim Caise 4) to Peggy George, Helen Barrett, Lorna Costantini, Kim Caise 4: i need to get with elluminate after the show


Fred Haas: @chamada - SHe uploaded them on the site for a reason and allowed them to be shared and embedded, that seems pretty much like a endorsement to me. If it wasn't why would she have made those choices.


jackiegerstein: The student's own story of learning over time - one of the best definitions I ever heard


Jason Epstein: I don't know about others, but my school has the most trepidation about the publishing part


chrislittle: does anyone do eportfolios in multiyears? Do students carry their portfolios with them? That would be a good reflective piece of their own development


Barbara: She put the presentation up in SlideShare to share. I just like to ask permission so the author is aware who is using it.


chamada: @Fred If she has copyrighted her slides, she has copyrighted her slides. That means you do not have the right to re-disbtribute them w/o her permission.


Jason Epstein: We are starting a grade 6-8 model, but my PK-5 teachers are starting to want into the action.


3rd grade teacher: This would be great for K-5


Maureen(bcdtech): @chrislittle I am working on giving each student their own blog for a portfolio, which could go with them


jackiegerstein: But you can show her slideshare as that is what slideshare is


Valaina 1: can school fusiion be used for eportfolios?\


chamada: @chrislittle We'd like to have it as a longitudinal portfolio. Very good for MYP development, IMO.


LangLabCindy: So the process isn't really changed - still need to collect, select, etc. but tech allows you to archive, etc? Am I getting this?


chrislittle: @maureen: do they have their own site on the lan?


chamada: @LangLabCindy I think the sticky point is finding a way to use tech to leverage the portfolio effectively.


Mark Spieglan: I obsess about commiting to a data format; especially if proprietary.


Maureen(bcdtech): @chrislittle- we just started with edublogs campus this year- first the faculty, next the kids


Moderator (Lorna Costantini): there are links to other resources and Helen's blogs in the glam posted in the resoures of classroom20 live


Moderator (Lorna Costantini): here is the link http://gl.am/DaRPJ


chrislittle: I find we (the school) controls our students' on-line space more than necessary--they don't get to build their own real pages


3rd grade teacher: The opportunity to collect, select, and archive from K to graduation is great.


Jason Epstein: AMEN! Reflection is so important


chamada: Great point. As we always hear/say, it should *never* be about the tech.


chrislittle: I like the idea of reflection, but I like students to reflect on each other's portfolios too


Pilar: @chrislittle. Can you link-out to a place like ning?


Jen Forsyth: @ 3rd grade - we are working towards this idea in our county - an eLocker that allows students to archive/store work - and this will be through SharePoint :)


Andy: School control: same problem in my school, but I'm excited about Cloud Computing.


Barbara: I so agree about Relection being so important


LangLabCindy: @chamada - yes, guess i was looking for a simple "this is the best tool" answer and it's not so simple...


chrislittle: @ pilar: just ning.com. It's simple to build your own. I must have about a dozen now for different projects


durff: now Flickr groups


Jason Epstein: "Digital Footprint" = "Digital Life Portfolio"?


chamada: @LangLabCindy Oh how I wish it were!


LangLabCindy: @MarkS Good point!


Barbara: So your ePortfolio is collected from your Personal Learning Network and Digital Footprint. Do like the idea of a Digital Life Portfolio


jackiegerstein: isn't 50 the new 30?


chrislittle: vid-folios work great, too, because students love looking back at their early videos from 9th grade when they're seniors


sroseman: must bow out


sroseman: thanks


Mark Spieglan: So I'm just getting started in middle age! :)


jackiegerstein: nice Jason!


3rd grade teacher: middle age is good


LangLabCindy: Does anyone have their guidance/counseling folks involved in this?


Jason Epstein: I am beginning to use Glogster.com/edu at my school for a visual scrapbook addition to my students work


chrislittle: flipcams!!!


Jason Epstein: Thanks Jackie


jackiegerstein: ; )


3rd grade teacher: flips are great


Jason Epstein: LOVE FLIPS!!!


Mark Spieglan: What was book title again?


Barbara: You post to Facebook - everyone sees what you are doing


3rd grade teacher: has anyone used the new nano with video


Moderator (Kim Caise 4): flip cams and glogster are fabulous tools to use to create eportfolios


Moderator (Kim Caise 4): @mark portfolio life


Mark Spieglan: thx


MB: Portfolio Life


Jason Epstein: waiting for the itouch to get a camera


carole Seubert: At best most of my students will only have access to mom's or dad's cellphone. Low income families, second language learners...my classroom is a tech wonderland and their primary or only access point


Moderator (Kim Caise 4): me too @jason!


3rd grade teacher: is itouch going to camera option


Lisa Carothers 1: Can you create multiple pages in Glogster for one file?


Moderator (Kim Caise 4): yes, but not sure when it will become available


Kim Flack: facebook or linked in could be a wonderful tool to help students develop their career-ready mindset


Moderator (Lorna Costantini): http://mahara.org/


Jason Epstein: rumor has it @3rd grade


chrislittle: I find that students still treat educational social networks much less thoroughly than they Facebook--they still count them as classtime


Moderator (Kim Caise 4): you link the glogster image to the page you want to show @ lisa


Jason Epstein: my guess would be some time late 2009 early 2010


LangLabCindy: portfolio sounds more academic than footprint - maybe parents would be happier to think in these terms.


Barbara: Working with world language and second language teachers - podcasts, videos are so important to collect their growth


chrislittle: @barbara: yes!


3rd grade teacher: Podcasts would be great for mathematical thinking.


Kim Flack: fantastic diagram


Barbara: reflecting on the process is so important


chrislittle: great slide!


McTeach: Here's Portfolio Life on amazon: http://tinyurl.com/ox3xso


kyteacher: Our students have an eLocker on District servers, but can only store Office-type applications. Limits the types of products students produce. Using PBWorks to allow more opportunities.


carole Seubert: great point barbara...having to push against traditional pen/paper decision makers who think they're "playing"


Barbara: need to step out for 5 minutes


3rd grade teacher: At one point teachers thought ball point pens were evil too1


chamada: <is there any way to resize the chat area?>


Teresa: I remember that time 3rd grade teacher


3rd grade teacher: Place your arrow on the line to the left for resizing.


chrislittle: How can we make e-portfolios different/better than just pen and paper portfolios?


3rd grade teacher: Oops right for resizing.


chamada: @3rdgrade Thx


Moderator (Lorna Costantini): resize - maxmimize the window just like a browser window


Maureen(bcdtech): We don't yet have good integration across the curriculum, but my gr 7-9 are tech mentors and one of their jobs is to digitize and teach others how to digitize their work.


elptuxman (El Paso TX): right click?


chrislittle: @maureen: great!


jackiegerstein: Have started using Voicethread for reflection too -


Moderator (Kim Caise 4): you can drag out the window to resize it


3rd grade teacher: Just place your arrow on the right line to resize.


chamada: @Lorna but then I can't follow along with the slides on slideshare...


Moderator (Lorna Costantini): or view layout wide


artykel 1: Using Wki to keep records/dscussions for our PLC vs. old paper folders, resources will be used more and shairng in real time vs. once weekly.


jackiegerstein: wow the recording just started?


Moderator (Lorna Costantini): @ jackie - not a good day


jackiegerstein: Wanted my grad students to watch this - sadness


chamada: @lorna will try that. thx.


Jason Epstein: @ jackie, I have started talking with my 6-8 spanish teacher about using voicethread!


3rd grade teacher: This would be great for grad students.


LangLabCindy: @barbara - good point - will make that a goal for me this year!


elptuxman (El Paso TX): please re-post all links for recording


jackiegerstein: @Jason - it is a good tool


Teresa: Hi Dr. Gerstein!


jackiegerstein: Teresa!


Moderator (Kim Caise 4): http://gl.am/DaRPJ has all the links to the resources shared and addtional resources for follow up


jackiegerstein: well - you are getting to see it in person -


Jason Epstein: When I was in Gradschool (7 years ago) I made my teacher portfolio digital and my professor thought I had invented the wheel! This should be standard for all teacher candidates now.


jackiegerstein: This is the theme for the next Module of our online course - assessment


3rd grade teacher: Wow! That was great!


Sylvianne: How can you assess work in an e-portfolio


chamada: Can't embed in SharePoint... biggest drawback.


Deb from MN: My teacher prep program can't seem to collectively verbalize what they want in the required ePortfolios - It's a sad mess.


Jason Epstein: Does anyone use netvibes? Might be a good tool for this as well


Barbara: Love being able to embed Glogster, Voicethreads, and so much more for ePortfolios. We use Web 2.0 in My eCoach


Teresa: glad I made it then


kyteacher: No blogs allowed in my District :(


LangLabCindy: @chamad - thx, that limitation rules out that exploration for me!


jackiegerstein: Smiles at Teresa


Mark Spieglan: Paranoid about portability if platform folds.


Maureen(bcdtech): I no longer trust embed codes... use them constantly, but if I really want to save it- I download it and save it. Too many web 2.0 tools have disappeared along with the embedded articles.


Barbara: @kyteacher - what if blogs were private and the ePortfolio was public


Teresa: smiles back


Lisa Carothers 1: kyteacher: That's a shame!


3rd grade teacher: How sad! Blogs are great for students.


Deb from MN: Can't wait to pour over these detailed slides later!


kyteacher: No blogs.


carole Seubert: How might we scaffold students' ability to reflect via journals effectively?


chrislittle: @Ky teacher: give us your administrator's e-mail and we'll tell them why they should allow them!


chamada: @Mark or if the kids leave the school (if it is in-house)


3rd grade teacher: Me too!


jackiegerstein: @Teresa - already embedded here slideshare into our course/


Teresa: ok


Jason Epstein: wikispaces has a student feature. no-emails necessary


jackiegerstein: http://sites.google.com/site/eportfolioapps/Home


chrislittle: we're writing a communal novel in googledocs


kyteacher: My admin supports everything I want to do ... it's District IT that doesn't.


Jason Epstein: WOW @ chrislittle! That sounds so cool!


Mark Spieglan: teachers get together to work on open source portability stds?


chrislittle: @Jason: In Spanish!


Paula Naugle: I use Google sites all the time.


Jason Epstein: @ chris little. Would you be willing to share link so that I could see?


3rd grade teacher: This is such motivation!


Sabine: grapjic organizer from inspiration have a hyperlink option too


chrislittle: and the novel will be critiqued by students in URuguay and Buenos Aires--they'll help us write it next year


Lisa Carothers 1: If each student had his/her own Google Site, how would the teacher be able to track them all?


LangLabCindy: @chrislittle Open to others or just your estudiantes?


Jason Epstein: @chrislittle. You are killin me! So cool!


Mike: I wish gmail wasn't blocked in my county


kyteacher: Can't have students create email accounts.


chamada: Isn't there a problem w/ google TOS?


chrislittle: @jason: they write one chapter every three weeks


Barbara: I like that the student owns the account for life - is there a way of monitoring what they do with their gmail account?


McTeach: We're getting Google Apps! I'm so excited!!


jackiegerstein: applause


Jason Epstein: @chrislittle: trying not to drewl on my computer! :)


LangLabCindy: @chamada - have the same Q and still seeking definitive answer.


Paula Naugle: @McTeach That is great.


Mike: @mike_mccormick


McTeach: Paula...can't wait!!!!


Jason Epstein: Adobe Acrobat can accomodate video/voice and other file types


chamada: "Invidivual Identity" is key.


Barbara: Are there templates for ePortfolios on Google Sites? or should they be open-ended. Personal identity is great but should there be some guidance


Lisa Carothers 1: I agree @ chamada!


kyteacher: I'm being negative. In spite of limited access, there are still ways to make this happen even in my District. Wish I could just spend more time doing and less time trying to figure out how.


chamada: FYI, Dr. Barret will be at ASB Unplugged in Mumbai in Feb.


chrislittle: that's probably the hardest part of FL portfolios--they're more worried about correct grammar than creating their own voice


3rd grade teacher: Our tech teacher uses Gaggle for students.


Jason Epstein: Keep plugging away KYteacher, it will happen. You can make it happen.


montagne to Peggy George, Helen Barrett, Lorna Costantini, Kim Caise 4: hey all


chamada: If you give the students clear directions as to what it is for and what needs to be included, then they can personalize it and meet those requirements.


montagne to Peggy George, Helen Barrett, Lorna Costantini, Kim Caise 4: disappointed I missed this!


rgriley: put another way, students are making an argument?


Pilar: Could you paste it in the chat window?


Pilar: The site


Barbara: We are working with class teams that use gaggle accounts and are making ePortfolios that include voice, video, etc. Reflection is the most important


Paula Naugle: @Angela C You do a great job of using what you can with your students, but I know it can be so frustrating.


jackiegerstein: The Pixar guy (forgot his name) says he hires people not from the promise of a resume but a proof in the portfolio


kyteacher: It's happening. Just get frustrated sometimes.


Moderator (Kim Caise 4): http://gl.am/DaRPJ


Moderator (Kim Caise 4): http://sites.google.com/site/eportfolioapps/Home


Pilar: Thanks!


maryfarrag to Peggy George, Helen Barrett, Lorna Costantini, Kim Caise 4: Hello all. Sorry for being so late. Mary from Cairo, Egypt who forgot the time change :(


carole Seubert: hurray...attention for k12


carole Seubert: I'm rolling out all of these things in my classroom


Lisa Carothers 1: Just curious--one advantage of these tools is access from anywhere. Is availability for ALL students still an issue, or are you finding that most students have access to computers and internet?


durff: did she refer to http://electronicportfolios.org/ ?


Moderator (Kim Caise 4): http://sites.google.com/site/eportfolioapps/Home


maryfarrag to Peggy George, Helen Barrett, Lorna Costantini, Kim Caise 4: Peggy or Kim, Can U plz copy & paste all of the chat & have it sent to me at my e-mail address?


Bob Caro: @Lisa - my concerns involve the fact that MS Office is installed on all student computers, but few parents can afford to install it at home


carole Seubert: access is a huge issue...that's why I noted earlier that my classroom is their main access point


Sylvianne: can't get access to the assessment4learning google site


Moderator (Lorna Costantini): chat will be posted in the archives later today


jackiegerstein: http://sites.google.com/site/eportfolioswp/


chrislittle: Mosep would be a great way for our students to connect with foreign students to share portfolios


durff: and after you consider, have a coffee


Moderator (Kim Caise 4): the slides are posted online with other resources in our gl.am link http://gl.am/DaRPJ


Mark Spieglan: nice slogan!


Jason Epstein: This is such a great nugget of wisdom!


maryfarrag to Peggy George, Helen Barrett, Lorna Costantini, Kim Caise 4: Thanks 2 th Moderators


Teresa: that's a good rule


Jason Epstein: AMEN! Dr. B!


chrislittle: great, thanks barbara


3rd grade teacher: This is great information!


Barbara: Thank you Helen! I agree with ePortfolios becoming dynamic.


jackiegerstein: Kim!!!


Moderator (Lorna Costantini): apologiesa about the recording - what we have weill be posted in the archives


Pilar: GREAT PRESENTATION!


durff: applause for Barrett


Sylvianne: What methods are there for assessing work


Paula Naugle: What ;is wrong with Blogger at elem level?


McTeach: Fantastic information! Thank you!!!


Sabine: what rubric do you use?


carole Seubert: teacher reflection and cross-action researching would be critical as well...teachers' learning curves can be very steep particularly with pressures of high-stakes testing


chrislittle: Are there legal issues to holding student work on-line?


Jen Forsyth: Thanks so much! And thanks to all for posting more links - I'm going to have a busy weekend!!!!!


Dorie: awesome presentation


chrislittle: who owns it?


Mark Spieglan: thanks; my brain is buzzing!


Pilar: RUBRICS


cpgates: Thanks for the information!


3rd grade teacher: Thank you for this motivational presentation!


Anne: how can you best blend multiple open source apps in one place?


jackiegerstein: Feedback - I really appreciate how Dr. Barrett keeps evolving her e-portfolios to reflect the tools available


Carlos38205: Thank you for the presentation, it's been fantastic


John Thawley: good info


Tammy Moore: We have been using Cmaps and e-notebooking for our portfolios. It has been fun!


Moderator (Peggy George): this was fabulous information Helen!! I'm so sorry we had so many technical difficulties at the beginning!


Lijun: anyone has experience in using portfolio to for teacher education?


LangLabCindy: What was the email offer she made?


McTeach: Would love to know more about assessment


Heidi Chaves: Thank you so much for sharing.


Dorie: I'll send you an e-mail soon about using e-portfolios with my third graders on PBWorks


Sabine: Danke


John Thawley: why


Debora (Oakland Adult & Career Education) 1: I'm an dult school teacher and distance learnng coordinator for ESL; I'm using a class wiki and also using "Voxopop" (a sort of asynchronous voice chat) with very good success so far.


durff: there is code to erase the next blog thing at the top


montagne: How do we prevent ePortfolios in a school community from being seen as an add on to what we already do? ePortfolio learning is a cultural shift, and I'm afraid it will be seen as yet another thing...


durff: making it safer


Moderator (Peggy George): All of Helen's links are in our gl.am bookmarks today http://gl.am/DaRPJ


chrislittle: @jason: what's your e-mail address?


Debora (Oakland Adult & Career Education) 1: (I'm using PB wiki for the wiki).


kathycassidy: I use classblogmeister for my grade ones.


Sabine: We have a blog in gaggle


Paula Naugle: Mine doesn't block Blogger and they suggested we use it instead of EduBlogs.


jackiegerstein: Kid blogging site - http://www.21classes.com/


durff: why?


Jason Epstein: @chrislittle work: jepstein@newtownfriends.org gmail: phoenix1027@gmail.com


Moderator (Peggy George): All of Helen's slides from today are here: http://www.slideshare.net/eportfolios/classroom20


durff: @Paula why?


Bob Caro: @LCindy - goto slide #53 at http://www.slideshare.net/eportfolios/classroom20


Caroline - Florida: Working online sometimes can be very time consuming. What have you learned about assessing these types of projects so that time is used effectively and efficiently by a teacher?


Mike to Bodie: hey bodie


Bodie: hey mike!


3rd grade teacher: Gaggle seems to have the option of monitoring students wonderfully according to our tech teacher.


Kim Flack: thank you so much -- I can't wait to pour over your website!


chamada: Is there any evidence (anecdotal or otherwise) that suggests private or public portfolios are more effective?


Maureen(bcdtech): @montagne- that's how it is seen at my school- not a culture shift or a living thing- but yet one more thing to do, and the worry that it will end up on a dusty shelf( vrtual shelf) somewhere


jackiegerstein: http://electronicportfolios.org/


Paula Naugle: When we learned about blogs a couple of years ago there was some kind of problem with EduBlogs so they taught us Blogger.


chrislittle: I'm clittle@collegiate-va.org


artykel 1: Are you interested in preparing a template for teachers to create their own professional portfolios to share online?


Sylvianne: I'm used to writing over an assignment, showing where improvements can be made, what are the options assessing online?


3rd grade teacher: Student portfolios are a great place for motivation for students and parent communication1


montagne: I think ePortfolios provide such a compelling alternative to letter grades, report cards, and other reductive measurements of student learning


chrislittle: @montagne: great point!


Moderator (Peggy George): our problem with eportfolios at the university was the template approach (commercial) with no use of web 2.0 tools


chrislittle: meaningful evaluation!


3rd grade teacher: @montagne Great Thought!


montagne: @Maureen...I share that concern in my school community


Jen Forsyth: example - I am being "required" to use LiveText for my Ed.S. portfolio - it's gotten better - but is limited in terms of file uploads (size limitations...)


jackiegerstein: Shouldn't use any tools that students can't take them with them after they leave the school


Jason Epstein: we have turned to e-portfolios in lieu of end of grade exams in 8th grade! YAY! out with BS testing1


Deb from MN: Dr. B - So true about commercial apps for ePortfolios in teacher ed program. Totally inflexible!


Jonathan Wylie: Good point Barbara


Dorie: Amen, Montagne! I totally agree!


LangLabCindy: @BobCaro - thanks!


Moderator (Peggy George): it was all about documentation for accreditation of learning at the university


Pilar: At our college, we are still allowed to link out of the CMS.


Barbara: We are working with National Board Certified teachers who are videoing their classrooms so they need to collect data in a private space. They can grab pieces for reflection and their ePortfolio that is public


Sheri Edwards: which eportfolio tools can students take with them after school?


Jason Epstein: tHANK YOU!


Dorie: Lot to think about!


Maureen(bcdtech): Most examples I have seen are little more than a rubric being checked off with artifacts... not a lot of reflection


John Weidner: Do you recommend giving students an ePortfolio tool that they can continue to develop from year to year or if they move to another school?


Artie: Thanks for your time and sharing information


Dorie: thank you!


carole Seubert: As a teacher I was EXTREMELY frustrated by the eportfolio tools they gave us! Just PowerPoint templates!


Pilar: DOES ANYONE HAVE RUBRICS FOR EPORTFOLIOS?


aprilbrown: Thank you very much. Lots to think about and learn.


carole Seubert: Sounds like Pilar is upset!


Pilar: No, not at all.


Moderator (Peggy George): be sure to spend some time exporing all of her fantastic resources on her website!! tongs of great things!! http://gl.am/DaRPJ


Jason Epstein: Have a good Day everyone!


Moderator (Peggy George): Helen has examples of rubrics for eportfolios


jackiegerstein: you too Jason


montagne: Should ePortfolios be graded/evaluated like other school tasks?? I would say no...use a social platform and allow commenting to serve as the main feedback


Pilar: Thanks


Sheri Edwards: thank you all


chrislittle: gracias y adios.


Lorraine L to Peggy George, Helen Barrett, Lorna Costantini, Kim Caise 4: Thanks very much everyone.


LangLabCindy: @Jason Epstein Cool! Can you share more details with me?


Deb from MN: Excellent seminar - wish we had had better luck with the tech in the beginning so we wouldn't have had to move so quickly thru the great info! Thanks.


artykel 1: How great to hear you speak again-Thanks Helen!


chamada: @montagne is the portfolio for the student or the school? If for the student, why assess?


Teresa: thank you!


Lijun: Thanks Helen!


Moderator (Peggy George): Thank you sooooo much Helen!!


mjoao: Dr. Helen, thanks. :-)


Jason Epstein: do you twitter Langlabcindy? I am Epstein27 or you can e-mail me at jepstein@newtownfriends.org


artykel 1 to Peggy George, Helen Barrett, Lorna Costantini, Kim Caise 4: Dr. Barrett and Steve-Thanks so much -will share!


Ali in Montreal 1: Thank you, Dr Barret and all


jackiegerstein: This was great


kyteacher: Excellent info. Thank you so much!


Moderator (Peggy George): click on your mic to speak Debora


kyteacher: Great conversation too.


durff: It's Coffee Time ! (Like Howdie Doodie Time)


montagne: @chamada...good point, I think it is for the student...I think it should really be student owned, not owned by the institution


LangLabCindy: @Jason - will be in touch - thanks!


Moderator (Peggy George): the student voice in eportfolios is so important!


Jen Forsyth: is the google at the same time next week?


Debora (Oakland Adult & Career Education) 1: My question is about using e-portfolios in adult ed?


Moderator (Peggy George): yes same time next week :-)


Sylvianne: we need to assess against criteria, how could that be done using an e-portfolio


LangLabCindy: Great session! Thanks, all!


Jen Forsyth: ty


artykel 1 to Peggy George, Helen Barrett, Lorna Costantini, Kim Caise 4: what is Dr. Barrett's Twitter user name?


Artie: Good Day All!


chamada: G'night all.... it's past midnight here. Thank you Dr. Barrett and thank you all for the conversation.


Ali in Montreal 1: Thank you, Peggy, Kim ND lARNA


Ali in Montreal 1: lORNA


Kathie Lewis: What is cloud computing?


Moderator (Peggy George): thank you so for joining us!!!


artykel 1 to Peggy George, Helen Barrett, Lorna Costantini, Kim Caise 4: Where do recommend for teacher to study master's degree for e portfolio research?


Debora (Oakland Adult & Career Education) 1: As an addult educator, I'm wondering if I can participate in any of the projecs you mentioned?


Moderator (Peggy George): great question Debora!


Barbara: Can you share the website about LaGuardia? I am working with teachers of ELL


Moderator (Peggy George): you all can become part of this very important research for k12!!


Bob Barboza: Do you know of any e-Portfolio use in Charter Schools? Bob


Lijun: Dr. Barrett, do you know any evidence for portfolio supporting reflection and identity building for new teachers? It sounds for me ituitive, but I don't know any related work about that


Kathie Lewis: What is cloud computing?


Mark Spieglan to bruna ori: Hi, Bruna! (Chicago Pam Slim vet here)


Mark Spieglan: @Kathie Lewis: use of web apps rather than desktop apps


Sabine: cloud computing= all your researchers are on the internet


Moderator (Kim Caise 4): we have a link in our gl.am that links to a site where you can volunteer for some of Dr. barret's projects http://gl.am/DaRPJ


jackiegerstein: http://www.amazon.com/Electronic-Portfolios-2-0-Emergent-Implementation/dp/1579223214


Moderator (Peggy George): thanks Jackie!


jackiegerstein: Of course Peggy


Moderator (Peggy George): how about charter school use??


Lijun: Thanks, Dr. Barrett


Moderator (Kim Caise 4): thanks for that link @jackie


jackiegerstein: Good luck explanining that one ; )


Moderator (Peggy George): :-)


Moderator (Peggy George): very good explanation Helen!!


montagne: moodle is cloud computing...basically apps delivered thru the internet


Moderator (Peggy George): Diigo and Delicious :-)


Kathie Lewis: Thanks!


Sabine: oops I meant research


montagne: What is your thought on the Mahara platform Helen??


Moderator (Peggy George): you will want to spend hours exploring her website! fabulous resources and examples!


Sabine: resources - I need to wake up :)


Moderator (Peggy George): we also have a number of links for Mahara examples


montagne: I like the Mahara platform, but it doesn't seem to have critical mass in development and lacks many features you would expect...


Moderator (Peggy George): http://gl.am/DaRPJ


jackiegerstein: and Slideshare automatically gives credit to the creator!


bruna ori: thank you


Moderator (Peggy George): love it!!!!!!!


McTeach: We do what we can! :)


Ali in Montreal 1: Great!


Paula Naugle: The power of sharing great work is wonderful.


carole Seubert: yes....


sdreyer: Thank you, I'll be reading, thinking, and reflecting all day!


Moderator (Peggy George): thank you all for hanging in there with our startup glitches!! definitely worth it!! Dr. Barrett is awesome!


John Weidner to kyteacher: Thanks for tweeting about studystack


carole Seubert: Can't find the student examples on your site....hints?


mjoao: How can we follow Helen at Twitter?


montagne: What is your thought on the Mahara platform Helen??


Ali in Montreal 1: A good incentive to do more!


montagne: I don't think sites allows templates


Rose: Informatiove presentation! Thank you!


jackiegerstein: Hands-on E-Portfolio Workshop using Google® Tools
GoogleDocs® Document & Presentation by Dr. Barrett - http://electronicportfolios.com/google/workshop.html


jackiegerstein: Templates promote conformity


montagne: @jackie...agreed...templates certainly can box you in


Moderator (Peggy George): some great resources here too: http://eduscapes.com/tap/topic82.htm (Eduscapes: Electronic Portfolios: Students, Teachers and Life-Long Learners)


Sabine: Have you ever used graphic organizer to link the artifacts?


Moderator (Peggy George): you could definitely use a Glogster poster to create clickable links to artifacts!


Deb from MN: @Sabine Good question!


carole Seubert: what a great idea!


Moderator (Peggy George): I love what you can do with Glogster!


Paula Naugle: That's a great idea Peggy.


Deb from MN: CMaps for graphic organizer?


carole Seubert: Am about to teach my kids Kidspiration and they could create that as a page in their portfolios


Moderator (Peggy George): you can also use Prezi for creating eportfolios that include images, docs, videos, etc.


carole Seubert: where will I find Cmaps?


Sabine: Kidsspiration and inspiration let you use hyperlinks


Tammy Moore: Cmaps link coming up ...


Paula Naugle: Kids would like makimg Glogs and Prezi.


Barbara: I like the idea of providing a framework instead of a prescriptive template for ePortfolios


carole Seubert: thanks Tammy!


Tammy Moore: http://cmap.ihmc.us/download/index.php


Tammy Moore: We have used Cmaps for years


Moderator (Peggy George): thanks Tammy-I was looking for that link


Moderator (Peggy George): Tammy is an expert with cmaps!!


carole Seubert: hadn't heard of cmaps before...love finding out about new tech stuff


carole Seubert: or are u really talking about concept maps


Teresa: I found Cmaps to be more intuitive than Prezi or Creately or Mindomo


Moderator (Peggy George): if you use Moodle students can create fantastic eportfolios


LangLabCindy: Will anyone be collecting all of the links shared in ShareTabs?


Tammy Moore: Here is our family Cmap root concept map ... http://cmapspublic2.ihmc.us/rid=1161009382437_885763749_8663/armoorefam%20Home%20Cmap.cmap


Deb from MN: @Tammy - I might have questions for you about Cmaps. Would you share contact info?


Jen Forsyth: Dr. Barrett - have you seen Prezi used to create ePortfolios? If not - do you think it's feasible?


maryfarrag: Is anyone using an online lesson planner? or just using printed ones?


Moderator (Kim Caise 4): our gl.am link has the resources and you can save this chat http://gl.am/DaRPJ


sdreyer: How are students creating eportfolios in Moodle?


Moderator (Peggy George): we will publish the chat log with all of the links shared here and the gl.am links include all of Helen's resources


montagne: Will the LEAP2 format address some of those portability issues Helen??


Tammy Moore: My contact info is armoorefam@centurytel.net


Moderator (Kim Caise 4): matt, did you want to take the mic to ask your question?


carole Seubert: which my school would get on the Moodle wagon! can't seem to work with it as an individual teacher on my own


Deb from MN: Thanx, Tammy!


Moderator (Peggy George): Tammy-want to take the mic to share how your students use Moodle for eportfolios?


Sabine: instead of moodle try gloster


montagne: there are moodle eportfolio blocks


jackiegerstein: Tammy will disagree - I have a hunch


Tammy Moore: Moodle doesn't give the student quite enough direct access to their own space


Moderator (Peggy George): yes :-)


Daryl Bambic: What do you think about PBworks as an eportfolio tool?


Ali in Montreal 1: Can we have the links to the google groups you mentioned?


Moderator (Peggy George): you can include cmaps in Moodle eportfolios :-)


jackiegerstein: I like the idea of using PBWorks as a portfolio tool


Tammy Moore: But you can link out from Moodle to a tool that does better for e-portfiolios


jackiegerstein: Prezi doesn't allow enough - no embedding


Jen Forsyth: thanks :) I'm exploring this now -


Jen Forsyth: prezi


montagne: I wonder about the permanence of prezi tho


Jen Forsyth: I HATE powerpoint - it's dull, lifeless and it never works for me!


Anne: Google group name or site


Moderator (Peggy George): that's always a worry Matt with web 2.0 tools!


Paula Naugle: You can embed in Prezi I thought.


Moderator (Peggy George): yes you can embed in Prezi


Sabine: http://edu.glogster.com/


Barbara: Conversations and interactivity is very important. Need a way for teachers to provide discrete feedback


Ali in Montreal 1: How about hosting them on the web?


John Weidner to kyteacher: Do you think "Google Wave" integration will be important in providing this conversation to an ePortfolio?


carole Seubert: I'm using wikispaces for interactive student experiences....just getting that going so wish me luck


Jen Forsyth: @ Paula - yes - you can - I was just wondering if Dr. B had seen any in Prezi just yet


kyteacher: @jackiegerstein I like using PBWorks too. Gives a ton of options.


jackiegerstein: How Peggy? Their website says they do not have embeds as of yet - just links to files


Moderator (Peggy George): PPT is too linear for portfolios IMHO


montagne: in a way I worry about the permanence of google sites as well...you can't really zip them and export them


Tammy Moore: So far, a good portfiolio is a mix of tools.


Moderator (Peggy George): you download the video (like YouTube) as flv and upload to Prezi


montagne: @tammy...excellent point...


t mohan: Have any colleges used e-portfolios in terms of the application process?


Deb from MN: Google Wave...can't wait. Anyone have any insight into when it's coming?


carole Seubert: Could Dr. Barrett repeat what a reasonable starting point for 3rd graders might be on eportfolios..what would be the most important first step...did I hear collection?


Tammy Moore: Home schoolers are using e-portfolios


jackiegerstein: Agree Peggy - but I want to embed slideshares, VOkis etc into Prezi - It still has a way to go.


Moderator (Peggy George): our college used eportfolios as the "graduation" process but not an application process :-)


Tammy Moore: because colleges want verification of parent transcripts


Moderator (Peggy George): I agree Jackie but it has great potential


jackiegerstein: agree


montagne: but, some colleges are asking students to submit YouTube samples (for things like theater, etc)


Sabine: this site is a plattform which offers portfolios tools too


Moderator (Peggy George): great to know more about the power and potential of Google!!


John Weidner: I had heard that google wave would be made available for educational purposes this year. And available to all in 2010.


Jen Forsyth: I have recommended to my students to START an ePortfolio and include it with their application - it's just getting so competative - it might give them an "edge" at more selective universities - I liken it to "Legally Blonde" where she does the video to "advertise" herself - corny, but some have started - now I have more tools to share with them!


jackiegerstein: During these last few months I have become a bit of a google fantatic - can't believe all the functions and tools they have and keep having'


Tammy Moore: I recommend using tools that you can backup to your own computer just in case a site dies


jackiegerstein: http://googlepublicpolicy.blogspot.com/2009/09/introducing-dataliberationorg-liberate.html


Sabine: You can apply to try it


LangLabCindy: Were the links to Dr. Barrett's Google Groups posted here? Would love to see them!


sdreyer: In a K12 setting, when (if ever) should GAPPS me made public?


Paula Naugle: And Google Voice.


Moderator (Peggy George): @Jen-great idea to have your students create an eportfolio to include with their application!


Paula Naugle: I got invited to Google Voice.


Moderator (Peggy George): yes


Moderator (Kim Caise 4): http://gl.am/DaRPJ


jackiegerstein: http://electronicportfolios.org/


Deb from MN: I'm waiting on my Google Voice invite...and waiting...


sdreyer: Love Google Voice.


montagne: Queen!


Paula Naugle: I remember signing up to be one of the first to get Google Wave, waiting to see if I get the invitation.


jackiegerstein: Guru and Grandmother!


Moderator (Peggy George): please contact Dr. Barrett and get your students involved in her research and next book!! :-)


Jen Forsyth: I would LOVE to have info on that!!!!!!


Jen Forsyth: is there a site set up yet for registration??


jackiegerstein: SIG


mjoao: I have to go. Thanks so much. It was so great. :-)


Jen Forsyth: the ePortfolio conference?? info??


Moderator (Peggy George): we'll definitely be looking forward to that Helen at the next NECC (ISTE Conference) :-)


Tammy Moore: lol


Paula Naugle: London?


Sylvianne: oooh, sounds good


Jen Forsyth: Um...don't think my school will spring for that! LOL altho I love London!


jackiegerstein: Want to and can are two different things


Moderator (Peggy George): I would love to go to London!! Wish I could!


Sylvianne: Only 2hrs for me to get there ;)


Paula Naugle: Would love to go to London. Do you need someone to carry your bags?


Teresa: so true


Barbara: Let;s look for good deals for London - I can carry your bags


Moderator (Peggy George): you can be our representative Sylvianne!!


jackiegerstein: Please do Tammy


Tammy Moore: OK


Moderator (Peggy George): yeah!!


carole Seubert: first step question please....did u say collection is the most important thing to do first?


Sylvianne: I'll have to talk to our ILT manager and see ;)


Carlos38205: A tip to introduce adult students to eportfolio


mjoao: Europe/London, would be a great opportunity to get to know each other. :-)


montagne: I'm about to introduce ePortfolios to our 9th grade students in a multi-discplinary art/design course...


montagne: I think I'm going to have half the students use Mahara and the other half use sites...


Moderator (Peggy George): that's such an important point that keeps coming up! not a single tool!!


montagne: and run a little experiment


jackiegerstein: My next "push" is using Wordpress for e-portfolios - anyone using it?


Sheri Edwards: ePortfolio links reflections to students' own stories


sdreyer: Do you have any thoughts about making GAPPS education Sites public, or should the setting be private?


Moderator (Peggy George): Helen has a great professional development handbook for eportfolios in our links today


montagne: @sdreyer...I think it depends upon alot of factors regarding making sites public...age, maturity, etc


Moderator (Kim Caise 4): http://gl.am/DaRPJ


Moderator (Peggy George): purpose is definitely the key!!


Sabine: What are you thinking of a class portfolio as a modeling idea?


LangLabCindy: @montagne - Cool! Will you be sharing your experience somewhere - Ning, blog...?


Moderator (Peggy George): @Matt-that will be an interesting experiment! We'll have to have you come back to do a show on that once you do it


montagne: I actually just transferred ownership of a google site from our school's domain to my personal gmail...it was a little tricky


Moderator (Peggy George) to Tammy Moore: Tammy can you take the mic?


Moderator (Peggy George) to Tammy Moore: would love to have you share your experience!


Bodie: Mike - are you getting this?


montagne: @peggy @langlab...the experiement is just a thought and right now I'm toggling back and forth between moodle and google sites for the portfolios...I will share out if we have half use sites and half use mahara


Tammy Moore: I can, but Helen is gowing great and I don't feel I should step in. If things slow down, I will jump in then. :0)


LangLabCindy: Got to run, but have thoroughly enjoyed this! Thanks!


Tammy Moore: *going


Moderator (Peggy George) to Tammy Moore: ok


Moderator (Kim Caise 4): is tammy doing the CC?


montagne: that is the nice thing about Mahara...is it provides year to year views for organization


jackiegerstein: I like having my head in the clouds


Moderator (Peggy George): we're all starting to understand more about the "cloud" now!


Moderator (Peggy George): that is such an important point about the student being able to take their portfolio with them after it's been created!!


Carlos38205: Have to leave now, thak you so much for this wonderful session. See you all next week


montagne: Sites is cool for student ownership after they leave...upon graduation the organization could even buy a domain for the student and transfer the site to her personal gmail


Moderator (Peggy George): I've been really impressed with the Mahara examples I have seen. Sharon Betts is doing some great things with them. Link in our gl.am links


Moderator (Kim Caise 4): http://gl.am/DaRPJ


Moderator (Kim Caise 4): http://gl.am/DaRPJ


Moderator (Peggy George): we also included a video tutorial from Matt re Mahara in our links :-)


jackiegerstein: http://cmap.ihmc.us/conceptmap.html


montagne: it looks like you can "Copy" google sites as well


Moderator (Peggy George): Tammy's concept maps are awesome!! You should take a look!


montagne: OK, I think Helen has converted me from Mahara to Google Sites...I love the portability


Moderator (Peggy George): http://virtualhomeschoolgroup.com/ Tammy's site


jackiegerstein: Tammy where can we see your maps as examples/


Kathie Lewis: Wonderful info - good luck to all!


Moderator (Peggy George): portability is essential!!


montagne: @peggy, definitely...so cool how google sites from a school's domain can be transferred and copied to a user's personal gmail


Moderator (Peggy George): thank you all for joining us!!!


Moderator (Peggy George): that is awesome Matt and something I didn't know before today!


Moderator (Kim Caise 4): http://www.mywebspiration.com/


Moderator (Peggy George): selecting the appropriate tool is such a critical 21st century skill!!


Moderator (Peggy George): opportunity cost--what you give up when you adopt a certain tool/approach--very helpful explanation!


Moderator (Peggy George): templates just don't work for that!!


montagne: but do we want to "Grade" portfolios??


jackiegerstein: Semi-structured -


Moderator (Peggy George): free form eportfolios--so creative and valuable and yet don't fit with a rubric :-)


montagne: perhaps we want to give feedback, and not "Grade" them


Moderator (Peggy George): I agree Matt!


Sabine: Portfolios could be enter for a contest too


Sheri Edwards: map good for initial and final thoughts


jackiegerstein: I provide the competencies but the students can use whatever tools they want to achieve those competenices - I suggest tools through a list


Moderator (Peggy George): our university required us to grade the eportfolios and it was very limiting--students just made sure they included all of the "required" pieces and there was very little reflection and deep learning


montagne: I think if we "Grade" them as we've typically done with student assignments we'll kill student interest/motivation in creating a showcase of learning


Moderator (Peggy George): Amen Matt!!


Moderator (Peggy George): university students really didn't understand how to write reflections!! need to be taught!


Sylvianne: we want to create online assignments using e-portfolios, but need to show where each criteria has been met, how could we do that electronically


Sabine: Evidence of learning


Teresa: there is so much that needs to be taught to students in K-12 to better prepare them for college


Moderator (Peggy George): yes Teresa!!


Tammy Moore: Lots of examples of many different styles of reflection are good. Students begin to relax when they realize that they can use their own personal style because they see lots of personal styles in examples.


Moderator (Peggy George): that's really helpful perspective Tammy!


virginia alberti: thanks ! hello!


Moderator (Peggy George): incompletes :-) I know about that!


Sheri Edwards: @sylvianne -- would Diigo highlighting of criteria work?


Moderator (Peggy George): great suggestion Sheri!


montagne: I agree helen...it shouldn't be just best work...


Teresa: good point Helen


Sylvianne: haven't ever used Diigo, was just signing up at the start of this session :), must continue


Sabine: Perhaps they could highligt their progress on their work


Moderator (Peggy George): timelines can help for showing progress with work


montagne: that came up just the other day with our photography class' shared flickr account...the teacher only wanted best works to be posted there...I asked her to consider allowing half-baked works to be posted so flickr community members could comment and offer feedback


Moderator (Kim Caise 4): @sylvianne we have a classroom 2.0 live group at diigo


Moderator (Kim Caise 4): to share resources


Sheri Edwards: Diigo allows highlighting and commenting; can extract both for a reflection


Sylvianne: we need to identify when they've met a criteria and also give comments to help them improve their work so they achieve


Jen Forsyth: thanks Dr. Barrett & all moderators - I have to get going :( LOVE all the fantastic resources!!!


Moderator (Peggy George): I love the timelines online that allow you to upload images to demonstrate the examples at any point in time


Tammy Moore: That is why you want a portfolio that let students keep past work and connect or build on them.


carole Seubert: Wow...Dr B's resource offerings on her sites are awesome....many thanks!


Teresa: such a good idea, it is so important for students to actually see what they have learned


montagne: Wow, thanks SOOO much for staying longer Helen


montagne: this was just an AWESOME talk


Sylvianne: Will try and find you on classroom 2.0


Bodie: I've learned so much!


Tammy Moore: Thanks Dr. Barrett. :0)


Sylvianne: thank you


Paula Naugle: Thank you so much, Helen.


montagne: we've talked about portfolios in schools for decades...now they seem attainable


Moderator (Peggy George): this has been fantastic Dr. Barrett!! We really appreciate your staying with us so long afterwards!


Sabine: that really was very helpfull to get an idea what a portfolio is


Teresa: thank you!


montagne: My students would LOVE that


Kathleen Thomas: Excellent presentation...so useful


montagne: a showcase!!!!


Teresa: great idea!


Moderator (Peggy George): that's a great suggestion!! showcase for student eportfolios!


Sheri Edwards: thanks so very much; so many resources. how about a resource group for eportfolio users -- wiki?


Paula Naugle: A showcase would be awesome.


McTeach: Love that idea!!


montagne: AWESOME Helen!


Moderator (Peggy George): it's so hard to get them outside of walled gardens!!


Moderator (Peggy George): we'll start exploring this!!


Sheri Edwards: ning?


carole Seubert: be great for students to share phenomenology of creating their portfolios


montagne: That suggestion has my mind spinning about possibilities right now!


Bodie: tea. can take out identifying information


carole Seubert: am looking at Dr. B's google group now


montagne: but live sharing would be great too


Moderator (Peggy George): wouldn't you love to see students reflecting and giving feedback on each others eportfolios? :-)


Tammy Moore: A portfolio of portfolios. :)


Teresa: examples are so helpful when students are "blocked" in the creative process of creating the portfolio


montagne: have students share live via elluminate, edtechtalk, whatever


Moderator (Peggy George): maybe we should start a LearnCentral group for student eportfolios?? great way to share resources and connect with others using them


Tammy Moore: LearnCentral would be great!


Paula Naugle: Good idea, Peggy.


montagne: presenting is a major component of the ePortfolio process and sharing live in elluminate would be a great option for kids


Sheri Edwards: thanks kim


Moderator (Peggy George): and we can hold followup elluminate group sessions on LearnCentral too :-)


jackiegerstein: Love when these sessions lead into action steps


Sheri Edwards: thanks Helen and Peggy and Tammy


montagne: @Jackie...agreed


Sabine: Vielen Dank!
