Meet Your Facilitator

This is the site for supporting the development of ePortfolios in the New York City School District, South Brooklyn, Staten Island. 

What is an electronic portfolio?

An eportfolio is an electronic collection of evidence that shows your learning journey over time. Portfolios can relate to specific academic fields or your lifelong learning. Evidence may include writing samples, photos, videos, research projects, observations by mentors and peers, and/or reflective thinking. The key aspect of an eportfolio is your reflection on the evidence, such as why it was chosen and what you learned from the process of developing your eportfolio.
Adapted from Philippa Butler’s “Review of the Literature on Portfolios and Eportfolios” (2006), page 2.

This model of ePortfolio development is developed under the guidance of Dr. Helen Barrett, ePortfolio Facilitator, and her model of Balancing the Two Faces of ePortfolios.
