http://myportfolio.school.nz/registration.php

Taster sessions are an overview of the MyPortfolio system, we also aim to provide information about the links ePortfolios have to teacher practice and the NZ Curriculum. The session will last about 1 1/2 hours with the first half hour being presentation and discussion. The remaining time is spent hands on using MyPortfolio, provided attendees have an account. If you haven't created a school account you can do so at this link. (There is no obligation to use nor cost associated with creating a school account)

Focus areas:
  • Student use of ePortfolios as learning journals.
  • Teacher use of ePortfolios for appraisal, resumes and reflective professional journals.
  • Using MyPortfolio as a PD tool.
