Family Suitcase by using e-Portfolio


Family Suitcase by using e-Portfolio

Logo for Family Suitcase by using e-Portfolio
As more and more grade schools use e-Portfolio as a assessment tool instead of classic paper report card, students need to prepare themselves by collecting and organizing their web artifacts in one place. To understand each student's cultural backround will be a good opportunity not only as a promotion of international understanding, but as a implementation of e-Portfolio.

I thought this was a good idea for how to engage your students!  I think the students would really enjoy this project overall, as it seems to give them the ultimate choice in where to take this project from a cultural standpoint. 


Technical Remarks:

A potential boundary I noticed is the requirement for students to have a computer and high-speed internet access at home. Without this piece, they may struggle to keep up with the expectations of this e-portfolio.

This resource is easy to follow and would be an engaging, rich project for the age group for which it is intended.  The motivational aspect, in particular, seems strong.  The steps as written are easy to follow, and would also be simple to adjust as needed in a specific classroom situation.

In reading through this, I began wondering if having a range of sites selected for students ahead of time would be helpful, especially sites at a variety of reading levels.  This can be a challenge, but some students will find the reading on sites they find simply by searching to be too high-level.  I would not recommend limiting them to these sites... Just providing them as an appropriate jumping off point.

I wonder a bit about the designation of the project as an e-portfolio.  As I read through it, I felt like it was more of a research product than an e-portfolio.

Regardless, this is an engaging, interesting, meaningful lesson plan which could be adapted and modified in myriad useful ways.

Technical Remarks:

No technical difficulties!
