Efolio Technologies for Digital Students
Abstract: An efolio is a web-based information management system where the student builds and maintains a digital repository of artifacts, which they can use to demonstrate competence and reflect on their learning. Showcasing technology based projects in a digital format has several advantages for the students and is also starting to become more commonplace in K-12 and in higher education. In this presentation, a group of instructors from a southeastern university in the United States will demonstrate and discuss a number of efolio tools (Task Stream, Weebly, Google Sites, Microsoft Frontpage, Wikispace, Blogspot, Open Source Portfolio) available for pre-service teachers to showcase their technology projects.Advantages and Disadvantages of using the efolio tools, and how these tools are used for authentic assessment will also be discussed.
