Lesson Delivery

Introduction

15 Minutes - E-portfolio

Time to start thinking about your e-portfolio. An e-portfolio is a ‘story of learning’. Creating one is a way of collecting evidence of your learning, achievements and qualifications, and revealing the critical and creative thinking and reflective process behind the product.

E-portfolios are an excellent way of organising and showcasing your work, and gathering evidence of your skills, knowledge and capabilities to demonstrate to yourself and others, particularly employers, that every decision you make is informed and career enhancing. 

The e-portfolio PowerPoint provides information about the purpose and importance of e-portfolios, and a focus for discussion. Using Resource B, students create their e-portfolio through Google Sites as instructed. 

Development

20 Minutes

Using the link to Google Sites, students start creating an e-portfolio that outlines their learning and career journey to date.  The e-portfolio can be stored/saved on the students’ school profile and USB for continued building.  

Using the headings in Resource B to assist, students create a personalised e-portfolio.

Closure 

15 Minutes

Ask students to login to their pathways plan and complete module eleven: My reflection and review.
