      Ronja and Patsy......great to meet you today and thanks for sharing your work with me, your action research (teaching as an enquiry) is a valuable contribution to peadagogy in New Zealand schools. I think the real value is in your goal for moving forward............."continue to refine and improve e-portfolio practice and use, based on teacher/student feedback/forward." this view is supported by the findings of the academics referenced in your action research, Hipkins, Hattie and others.

      as you share your learning with other teachers in your school is their a real "ako" opportunity here?

      The collaborative Study Note use is a fabulous way that the power of a group shows through. There are some good examples of this coming out of Wiki educator too. The multiple realtime of google docs editing is incredibly effective if we structure it right. A next post from me will look at some ideas I have to manage this environment.

      In the trial online ESOL school where I teach, we make heavy use of Google Docs and use Teacher Dashboard and this has proven to be a fantastic way of working. I have even started running my lessons out of Google Presentations. Students click on a slide when instructed while we go over material and they then have separate slides to do their own writing on within the presentation that I can easily track all at the same time. We have also done a similar thing with separate docs too. Using the 'Add comment' feature in the docs means less 'red pen' and more ownership by the student to make editing changes.
