So, what is an ePortfolio and why do you have to make one for this class? An eP (my abbreviation) is a way to collect together all your work and think about what you've learned as you created each assignment. Each thing you make (digitally) is called an artifact. Your eP is like a binder that has a page for each artifact you make.
While making the artifacts and getting them into the eP is important, even more important is what you write about what you've learned. This is called reflecting on your learning and it helps you become a better learner. By realizing how you feel, what frustrates you, what situations or processes help you learn faster or are fun and easy, you can apply that understanding to new situations! Be patient with yourself as you try this out. It takes a while to get good at it!
I'll demo what it looks like & how my thinking works as we set up eP's today.
