Make The Most Of Their Learning Journey

By Admin | Published:

Life’s achievements however big or small start as soon as you’re born; from childhood to adulthood you continuously learn, every single day.

Supporting personalised and reflective learning

By Admin | Published:

Online technology has given educators new tools to make learning more personalised. Learning platforms are widely used in schools to individualise tasks and resources according to need and ability.

 

However, learning platforms are reliant on educators to update and to distribute content. The e-portfolio is owned and managed by the student, and acts as a personal record of achievement and progress that can be carried between institutions and into the workplace. The e-portfolio is an online space for reflection upon a student’s work and experiences, helping cement learning. It can also act as an internal communication hub to facilitate collaborative learning
