Hi, I'm Jon Nicholls and I work at a large comprehensive state school in Greenwich, South East London. I am interested in the notion that all teachers should maintain an ePortfolio (embracing a variety of content curated on the web) as part of their professional responsibilities. I am using ePortfolios with my students (in media and photography) and I have experienced their many benefits. Many more students are arriving in my classes with competent web literacies but many more need support. I have some colleagues who make very creative use of a wide range of web based resources and make some attempt to share them with others, but they are in the minority. I would like to learn more about how colleagues from around the globe are creating, remixing and sharing their knowledge and skills.
Welcome to this learning group! Our purpose here is to look at online portfolios as a personal learning tool for teachers.
