Secondary Preservice Teachers' Development of Electronic Portfolios: An Examination of Perceptions
Wilson, Elizabeth K.; Wright, Vivian H.; Stallworth, B. Joyce
Journal of Technology and Teacher Education, v11 n4 p515-527 2003
National and state technology standards for students, teachers, and administrators, teacher certification program standards, and revisions of many states' computer course of studies have encouraged teacher educators to seek innovative techniques to prepare teachers to effectively use and to seamlessly integrate technology into content classrooms. This study examined the perceptions of preservice teachers who were required to develop an electronic portfolio as part of a preservice teacher education program. Most participants concluded that the electronic portfolio assessment was a more authentic method of assessment for their work. However, the preservice teachers did not seem to reflect upon the portfolio or the process. Recommendations are made for teacher education programs employing electronic portfolios.
