Why ePortfolio?



They add a new dimension to learning and create new opportunities to enhance one's learning and self-development. An ePortfolio is a personal record of learning and an expression of identity in a digital medium. An ePortfolio helps substantiate your claims of achievements, strengths and potential by incorporating appropriate evidence. ePortfolios facilitate the process and documentation of whole-person development and life-long learning.
 
Driving Forces
 
ePortfolios are being developed by university students all over the world, particularly in the USA, the UK, Canada and Australia. Advances in technology are providing new opportunities for learning, teaching and communication. As part of the new 3-3-4 education system in Hong Kong, secondary school students will soon be creating student learning profiles. Get started as soon as you can, because there is a driving force for all Hong Kong students to possess their own ePortfolios when they graduate.
 
Benefits Over Paper Portfolios

  • incorporate multimedia elements such as audio, video and photos.
  • make your learning visible and receive feedback at any time.
  • communicate to your teachers what interests you and motivates you.

  • insert hyperlinks to make connections between different areas of learning.
