Professional standards based digital portfolios vs. evidence based digital portfolios: Recommendations for creative, interesting and long-lasting digital portfolios
MetadataShow full item record
Digital portfolios have become a standardized tool for the collection and presentation of evidence of a teacher's knowledge, skills and practice. This doctoral research project has used two types of digital portfolios to understand how teachers pedagogically reason with technology. The two types of portfolio are: digital teacher education portfolio (DTEP) and digital pedagogical license (DPL). Each portfolio is constructed differently; the teacher education portfolio has used professional standards to explain teacher practice whereas the digital pedagogical license has used an evidence focused description of practice to explain digital competence. The message for teacher education is use restories of teaching practice with professional standards acknowledged through the discussion as a means to focus on the evidence of professional achievement.
