Integrating Preparation and Practice through a Technology-Based Approach to Portfolios for Professional Development Using CD-ROM Technology.
Holt, Dennis; And Others
As part of the Jacksonville Urban Education Partnership (JUEP) at the University of North Florida, a CD-ROM disc designed to assist preservice teachers in the preparation of their portfolios was developed and tested. With the help of the disc, 45 preservice teachers developed portfolios as a tool for reflection and for evaluation of skill and knowledge during their clinical experience in urban professional development schools. The content of the CD-ROM includes: guidelines for assembling a portfolio; suggestions for the format and the selection of artifacts that represent teaching performance; and concrete examples for producing portfolios. The CD-ROM format was selected because it can hold a substantial amount of data, graphics, sound, and video, and is portable, durable, and inexpensive to reproduce. Evaluation of the CD-ROM project included an examination of the quality of the working portfolios produced by students in the pilot JUEP project. Conferences were held with selected students, clinical educators, and directing teachers to compile and review anecdotal records about their experiences with the CD-ROM and the portfolio development process.
