Defining "ePortfolio": Four Ways of Seeing an ePortfolio - 0 views

    Conversations about portfolios often suggest them as a solution to one problem at a time, whether that problem is integrative learning, student self-representation outside the college, or institutional (and departmental) assessment.

The Teaching Naked Cycle: Technology Is a Tool, but Psychology Is the New Pedagogy - 0 views

  •  
    "Our real goal is to improve how students integrate new information. We want to change them. While what we have to teach our students may get them a first job, it will not on its own get them a second job-especially one that may not yet even exist.

Jose Bowen argues that we should treat both technology and disciplinary content as tools, in pursuit of the larger cognitive changes we try to create in the liberal arts.

I think it provides a set of metrics which may be useful in examining anyone's pedagogy.

  •  
    Like many people, I prefer to take notes on my computer rather than writing with a pen or pencil because I can type much faster than I can write longhand. The authors report on a study which indicates conceptual understanding is deepened when one takes notes by hand. The study points to benefits resulting from a greater level of "encoding" of the information because of "selective strategies" employed when a person can't simply type everything verbatim.
