Batson, T. (2010) Reviewers unhappy with portfolio ‘stuff’ demand evidence Campus Technology, October 6
Another excellent article by Trent Batson about e-portfolios. Key message: ‘Collecting is easy. Interpreting and integrating the collection is hard.’
More evidence that you can’t just look at the technology, but also how it’s used. If it’s not used well, it won’t work, no matter how promising the technology. And ‘well’ is usually determined by a good theoretical or empirically-based approach to teaching and learning, whatever the technology.
