My work during my e-Fellowship: The development of learner-centred e-Portfolios in a secondary school

Link:

My Current Educational and e-Learning Interests: I am currently involved in:

  • The provision and delivery of adult and community education (ACE) courses aimed at encouraging second chance learners to become more literate and numerate (digitally & non-digitally)

  • Research - encouraging rural Maori women back into learning, in ways that acknowledge their unique life circumstances as mothers, part time seasonal workers etc.

  • Exploring the development and creation of safe social learning environments such as edmodo.com for classrooms with the aim of doing something similar within ACE


Skills and Knowledge I am keen to share:


  • Implementing learner-centred ePortfolios in high schools

  • Setting up ACE in rural communities to support the improvement of digital & non-digital literacy & numeracy skills in second chance learners
