The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) is the statutory framework that sets the standards for early years education in the UK. It promotes teaching and learning to ensure children are ready for school.
As part of the EYFS, every early years teacher must evidence each child’s development in a profile. This covers areas including creative and physical development, personal and social development, and communication, language and literacy.
Gathering this evidence has proven time consuming and problematic for Early Years educators. The Learner Journey e-Portfolio is the ideal tool to ease this problem.
Early years teachers can quickly and easily set up a
So, the new school year has begun. Before you get into creating name badges for your new class so you remember who’s who, before your marking starts to pile up, and before you start trying to think up new ways to re-engage your class with learning, at Webanywhere we recommend you do one thing.
Take a look at Learner Journey!
The beginning of the new school year is the best time to implement our pupil e-portfolio system. Learner Journey is easy to use – in fact, even without a training session, many people can pick it up in minutes. Here are
e-Portfolio systems are starting to become as popular for workplaces as they are for schools, colleges and universities. It’s easy to see why: They provide a convenient solution for tracking learning and development of staff, whatever the industry.
But that’s not the full picture. Introducing an e-portfolio system to your workplace can give you an invaluable insight into your staff’s competencies, allow them to demonstrate their knowledge and experience when applying for promotion, and ultimately engage them further with their own development within your company.
If you’re planning on introducing an e-portfolio system to your workplace, here are five reasons why
Life’s achievements however big or small start as soon as you’re born; from childhood to adulthood you continuously learn, every single day. The way in which these achievements are documented, however, differ dramatically. Some people keep paper documentation, some have e-portfolios, whilst others don’t have anything at all.
In life there are those key moments that are integral to a person’s progression, and this documentation is crucial for smooth transition and understanding of their skills. There are several phases in life that require the ‘bridging the gap’ approach, particularly for moving from primary to secondary school, secondary school to college
There are many benefits of using an e-portfolio system in your school – giving pupils a way of showing off their proudest achievements, record a history of their work and improving their ICT skills. With Learner Journey, however, there are other benefits – which help with making classroom time more engaging – and encourage learners to put in that little extra effort. Here are our top three.
Track Pupil Progress
Any e-portfolio creates an online record of a learner’s work. You can do this with Learner Journey, of course – but it goes a little deeper than that. Acting as a
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
The Learner Journey e-portfolio is a fantastic tool for pupils, allowing them to create a personal document of their time in school, packaged with multimedia content. However, these e-portfolios can also be a very useful tool for teachers when assessing pupil progress.
Pupil progress assessment is most effective when it draws on a broad range of evidence demonstrating what learners can do independently. Learner journey provides both the tools for pupils to document their learning achievements, and also acts as an online showcase of those achievements.
An effective Learner Journey e-portfolio can provide the evidence of learning teachers look for, for
