MyPortfolio taster sessions

MyPortfolio logologogroup

Introduction: Many schools have been asking how they can learn more about MyPortfolio and get started in using it. A few of us put our heads together and decided to create a marketplace where schools requesting taster / introductory sessions can link up with those willing to offer these sessions. There is also a link to the guidelines we as a community think should apply to these sessions.

What to expect: A MyPortfolio Taster is a short (90 minutes) introduction to Mahara and specifically the hosted service This a free professional development workshop for NZ teachers designed to help them get started with ePortfolios using Mahara.

Conditions: these are not sessions for an entire school (to get their PD), but each session should be attended by ICT leaders, teachers, principals, DPs etc. from at least 3 schools so that they can then take their experiences back to their own schools and continue the discussion.

Facilitators: An experienced MyPortfolio user will visit your school / cluster and facilitate this face-to-face session.

By the end of the session each attendee will have:

  • Started their own ePortfolio
  • Understood what an ePortfolio is and why would you use one?
  • Understood how to make an ePortfolio page and have an idea of what to put into it?
  • Understand how to use multimedia in a page? (image, audio and video)
  • Understand how to share my page with others?
