This Thursday, come along to #whatisschool as I am joined by Dana Watts to discuss ePortfolios. How are they used, are they useful, what do you use them for? Come and share your school examples and gain some valuable insights.

Dana will be sharing her journey with ePortfolios, the implementation of ePortfolios at two different schools, and discuss the future of ePortfolios in terms of assessment and the documentation of authentic learning. Join us at #whatisschool as we discuss everything and everything to do with ePortfolios and their benefits.
