Today we were encouraged to read and reflect on a number of our peers ePortfolio posts.
Examples of MA1 posts:
Layla – Fear of feedback
Claire-Emma: The ability grouping debate continues
Rachel: Children are the real teachers
Rebecca: My tired
Examples of MA2 posts:
Rebecca Sharpus-Jones: Longitudinal coherence and the conceptual knot
Sharon Iddir: There’s been a breakthrough
What did I notice?
Throughout these posts, I noticed many aspects which I felt add clarity and depth, as well as making the posts engaging to the reader. These include:
- Speaking about initial feelings/ past experiences to show growth and development,
- Showing enthusiasm and passion for a topic,
- Providing links to further reading or resources,
- Adding references and quotes,
- Showing connections to the curriculum,
- Making the posts visual and attractive through use of pictures and videos,
- Using a combination of terminology and academic language as well as accessible, every day language,
- Speaking about how new understanding and knowledge will impact on future practice,
- and identifying areas that they must continue to develop
I hope that these are all elements that I include within my own posts. I aim to use my ePortfolio as evidence of my personal and professional growth, as well as for sharing interesting discoveries and my own ‘eureka’ moments.
