Talks about e-portfolios, but more importantly, quotes Helen Barret: "I made the public statement this week, that high stakes assessment and accountability are killing portfolios as a reflective tool to support deep learning. Those mandated portfolios have lost their heart and soul: not creating meaning, but jumping through hoops!" And Misja Hoebe, who makes a similar point. Some very nice diagrams emphasizing the personal uses of e-portfolios (which I hope will become more widespread soon, before the bean-counters kill the concept).
