When thinking about E-Portfolios I usually just think of a platform that students can use to display their work. But in fact, they can be used by anyone!
Thibodeaux says that “we have to not only give students a choice, ownership, voice and agency (COVA) over their digital domain we have to give them COVA” (Thibodeaux, 2015) over their ideas. E-Portfolios allow students to communicate and showcase skills, experiences and learning .Because e-portfolios contain documents, videos, images, presentations and reports. They are easily accessible for anyone (that has been given access) including potential employers, graduate school committees and even students.
So who owns my E-Portfolio…. I do!!!!
