Using ePortfolios to enhance students' cultural and linguistic awareness
February 9, 2012
Lisa Anderson and Aine Zimmerman demonstrated how ePortfolios can help to develop students' cultural and linguistic awareness. We discussed:
- how ePortfolios can prompt students to reflect on the language they encounter and use, and to articulate the challenges they face in the learning process.
- how including revision and reflection in ePortfolios enables students to track both their progress and their changing perceptions.
- how multimedia reflections and event creation in the ePortfolio can engage students in ways that paper portfolios do not.
