3. As teachers, we are often told our profession needs to compete with what our students are into…e.g. gaming…so we can engage them. The word “edutainer” is often coined to describe the implementation of “entertainment” into education. Do you feel the notion of being an edutainer diminishes the teaching profession? Please rate.

Question about eportfolios

I am researching eportfolios for a pitch to my k-8 DL program.  They sound like they would fit our program perfectly, but I don’t have any experience with them.

I am wondering if anyone has experience with using eportfolios in  k-12 system that they could share – platform, security, etc.

If you prefer, you could email me at sonnannAtgmailDotcom.

I would appreciate any advice, particularly about platforms used.

Thanks,

gillian
