English as an Additional Language has piloted e-portfolio on Glow as a tool to support the transition from Primary to Secondary School in the context of EAL, and to better evaluate the use of technology as an inclusive practice in the learning process.
In line with the guidance set by The Scottish Government, e-portfolio on Glow is an initiative in our local authority. Building the Curriculum 5 provides advice on developing learners’ profiles at the key transition points of Primary seven (P7) and Secondary third year (S3). The profile format may vary whenever a change is required leading to the next stages of learning.
The use of e-portfolio in the context of EAL will offer different means of communication and expression for pupils to present their own culture and background knowledge. It can reveal the ability to capture, review and manage a large amount of material. In addition, it offers flexibility, dynamic for integration, opportunities to develop and demonstrate technology skills through samples of the pupil’s work such as, photographs, videos, audio clips, projects, research and assessments. Furthermore, the e-portfolio will provide opportunities to develop ownership and show more interest in the culture in which the additional language resides. It is a way to demonstrate learners’ creativity with different emerging skills and reflect about choices to break down the barriers for learning. Teachers can access information about their pupils’ learning development, thereby also offering an opportunity for parents to appreciate the improvement.
It provides interesting ways for children to learn in classes, where many different languages are spoken, and where children are learning English while accessing the whole curriculum.
There are examples of EAL friendly group talk activities that will benefit all children, while at the same time provide scaffolding for learning English.
Collaborative activities are vital for children learning English, but at the same time other learners benefit in many ways. They are good for developing sustained shared thinking, and also help retention of information through pleasurable repetition. They provide opportunities for all the children in a class to work with every other child at some point during the week. Children new to English need exposure to visually stimulating collaborative talk activities in short sessions throughout their learning, if they are going to be able to draw on their prior knowledge and skills.
