How to implement e folios in the classroom
How to Implement E-folios in the Classroom

Teachers of all grades and all schools must:

  • be open and receptive

  • be aware of the benefits of this technology

  • be trained in using technology in order to become successful

  • have the availability of computers in order to implement technology in education (Specht, 1999)

Types of teacher e folios
Types of Teacher E-folios

  • Product e-folios= shows the finished products

  • Process e-folios= shows educator’s growth and development in thinking

  • Process/product e-folios= shows both(Norton-Meier, 2003)


  • E-folios must be put into action in education because of the functions and uses in education and the benefits for future opportunities; ensuing in teachers using e-folios themselves and implementing them in the classroom in the right procedure.

  • The more and more teachers that use e-folios, the better educated students will be.

  • Educators and students should remember that their e-folio is never done, and can always be altered. As technology advances, a teacher must be able to do the same to keep up with the twenty first century students.
