Integrated Technologies and Teacher Portfolios.
Kolloff, Mary Ann; Dickey, JoAnna; Long, Shirley; Reehm, Sue P.; Thomas, Joyce Harris
The Kentucky Department of Education and the National Council for Accreditation in Teacher Education guidelines direct institutions of higher education to plan a continuous assessment component in their preservice and inservice teacher education programs. To meet these guidelines, Eastern Kentucky University (EKU) has created a portfolio requirement to be used in its undergraduate and graduate teacher education programs. The portfolio requirement incorporates a system that students use to document the achievement of meeting the New Teacher Standards for Preparation and Certification (NTS) and the Experienced Teacher Standards for Preparation and Certification (ETS) from the Kentucky Department of Education and the guidelines from learned societies. The NTS measure the performance of preservice and intern teachers. The ETS measure the performance of teachers who are participating in an inservice development program. The use of integrated technologies will play a major role in the development of a program candidate's portfolio. Portfolio entries may be in any physical format such as print, video and sound recordings, transparencies, slides, CD-ROMs, and disks. What is essential is that there be integration of all technologies, used as tools or displayed as products. The purpose of this paper is to explain how integrated technologies will be incorporated into the portfolio process. (Author/AEF)
