Vi analyserer kort forbedringen af e-portefølje-processerne defineret af Zubizarreta (2009) med introduktionen af mobil teknologi. Vi kommer med nogle eksempler på ibrugtagning af mobilenheder i e-portefølje-processer udført af lærerpraktikanter. Disse eksempler bliver således beviset på forbedringsmuligheder af en af e-portefølje-processerne, nemlig dokumentering.
Initial Education —ePortfolio from kindergarten to further and higher education
Employability, Organisational and Lifelong Learning —ePortfolio from employees to self-employed and entrepreneurs
Healthcare Education and Practice —ePortfolio from patients to healthcare professionals (special track)
Assessment, Accreditation and Recognition —knowledge, skills and attitudes
Policies —ePortfolio and identity initiatives from a single institution to a whole country
Identity Construction — ePortfolio, social networks, web 2.0
Technologies —ePortfolio platforms, system architectures and standards
ICERI2012 will focus on the presentation of innovative projects and open up a floor for to discuss the main aspects and the latest results in the field of Education and Research. The general aim of the conference is to promote international collaboration in Education and Research in all educational fields and disciplines. The attendance of more than 700 delegates from 70 different countries is expected.
Until 5 March 2012 authors are invited to submit research papers, case studies, work in progress, position papers, workshops and posters. All submissions will be peer-reviewed by three members of the programme committee for originality, significance, clarity and quality. Accepted papers will be published in the ePIC 2012 proceedings under ISBN 978-2-9540144-1-8.
Authors are invited to address issues in relation to:
- development of lifelong learner / professional / citizen identity;healthcare education of professionals and citizens (professional- health- folio);integrative learning and holistic development;individual / community /organisational ePortfolios and identities development;continuing professional development and sustainable employability;
- assessment, recognition and accreditation of learning (formal, informal, lifelong and life-wide).
Key conference questions may include, (but are not limited to):
- Should everybody (individuals, communities and organisations) have an ePortfolio?
- How do individual and organisational ePortfolios (and identity) relate?
- How do ePortfolios contribute to the identity construction process?
- How do ePortfolios support the acquisition of 21st century skills?
- How do ePortfolios support lifelong learning, orientation and employability?
- How to develop the recognition and accreditation of prior Experience and learning (APEL) ?
- How to create an ePortfolio ecosystem?
- How do ePortfolios, Personal Learning Environments and Personal Working Environments relate?
- How can we make effective an ‘business case’ to those funding eportfolio provision when resources are restricted?
The worldwide emergence of the ePortfolio is transforming our current views on learning technologies. For the first time in the relatively short history of learning technologies we are seeing the rise of a new generation of tools dedicated to valuing and celebrating the achievements of the individual, from nursery school to lifelong and life wide learning, a technology providing a key link for individual, organisational as well as community learning (e.g. communities of practice, learning regions and cities). While some countries and regions are already providing the infrastructure required to offer ePortfolio access to all citizens, other regions and countries are considering it, and others have yet to discover its possibilities.
Europortfolio are looking for partners to submit a proposal to the European Commission. Posible funding is 150.000€ per year, with a maximum of 3 years. Deadline for the submission of proposals is 1 March 2012.
Despite success recorded in the development of ePortfolio initiatives in Europe and beyond, the growth of ePortfolio is still extremely patchy across institutions, regions and sectors. This is the consequence of a lack of leadership resulting in the fragmentation of initiatives, information, technologies and actors.
Leadership: despite the efforts made by a number of actors, including those who have succeeded in making Europe a worldwide ePortfolio actor, this initial leadership has not yet been translated into a shared European ePortfolio vision, practice and infrastructure.
Fragmentation of initiatives: most initiatives occur at individual, local and organisational levels, few at regional, national and international levels (e.g. European Language Portfolio). This fragmentation, which sometimes mirrors that of political structures (municipality/district/region/nation), institutions and sectors, is detrimental to the emergence of a an ePortfolio ecosystem working across space, time and institutions.
Fragmentation of technologies: despite efforts on interoperability (e.g. IMS and LEAP 2A standards) ePortfolios are not interoperable across ePortfolio platforms and main stream information systems in education, human resource development and employment.
Fragmentation of actors: distance, language and cultural barriers affect the ability to share information and build shared knowledge within and across sectors and frontiers. The results of interesting experiences, both successful, as well as failed, are not easily accessible to those planning or making decisions in relation to ePortfolio policy/technology implementation.
Fragmentation of information: despite the efforts of a number of actors, there is no single centralised point from which it is possible to find all relevant information on ePortfolios initiatives, technologies, practice and actors.
In order to address those issues, we are working on building a consortium to submit a proposal to the European Commission. Posible funding (link) is 150.000€ per year, with a maximum of 3 years. Deadline for the submission of proposals is 1 March 2012.
An initial summary of the proposal is accessible at http://tinyurl.com/7ddhs73.
If you are interested to join as a partner or associated partner, you are invited to provide details using an online form accessible at: http://tinyurl.com/7hrxghs. Responses will be used to update the Summary and to invite partners to join as Partner or Associate Partner.

In diesem Jahr konzentriert sich die Veranstaltung auf das Thema „eAssessment“ – die computerunterstützte Bewertung von Wissen und Können. Neben dem vieldiskutierten Thema der online-Klausur spannt sich der Bogen der Themen vom Datenschutz über Prüfungen mit ePortfolios bis zu technischen Fragen.
So bietet KeLT 2011 bereits zum neunten Mal Bildungspraktikern am Mittelrhein die Möglichkeit, neueste Entwicklungen zu verfolgen und Erfahrungen auszutauschen. Die Mischung von Beiträgen aus der Region und von ReferentInnen aus dem In- und Ausland trägt dazu bei, die Perspektive zu weiten und dieses facettenreiche Thema in ganzer Breite zu diskutieren.
