Emerging clarity the path that lay ahead

Emerging clarity & the path that lay ahead…….

  • Clearly:

    • The use of ePortfolios requires a paradigm shift for

    • teachers, one that offers a new, yet very unfamiliar way of

    • engaging learners.

  • Our Next Step:

    • Build on experiences from the initial trial by taking a more

    • focused approach; introducing ePortfolios where they are more

    • likely to succeed.


  • Life after the initial trial

    Life after the initial trial…….

    • 2010 - the story continues with the Hairdressing team at our Nepean College continuing to lead the way.

    • This video shows students working on their ePortfolios
