Electronic Teaching Portfolios: Technology Skills + Portfolio Development = Powerful Preservice Teachers.
Capraro, Mary Margaret
An electronic portfolio is a collection of work captured by electronic means that serves as an exhibit of individual efforts, progress, and achievements in one or more areas. Due to rapid growth and updates in technology, keeping electronic portfolios is becoming increasingly common in a variety of educational settings. In fall 2002 at one large public university, 24 field-based preservice teachers designed professional portfolios using either an electronic format or a traditional three-ring binder format. On a ten-point rubric scale, preservice teachers received a mean score of 9.61 and 9.48, respectively, on their electronic or traditional portfolio presentation, indicating little difference as determined by principals and university professors. Through interviews, however, it was determined that the value of video clips included in the electronic portfolios proved to be valuable to administrators in determining teacher candidate effectiveness.
