Portfolios – A very tricky, simple idea.

It seems that organizing a process in schools where students gather evidence of their learning and compile a #portfolio is very simple. That is, it would be very simple if you didn’t need to bother about it being a meaningful process. This is where the difficulty lies. I have experimented with different types of portfolios, both student and teacher, for a number of years and have always found that they tend to get done, yet the purpose of the portfolio is more than getting it done. Looking back, one thing I would change if I was to go through this process again is to better define their purpose, and ensure a higher degree of choice offered throughout the process, choices based on this flexible purpose. It just so happens that I am in the middle of this process and will share my thoughts along the way.
