Why and how to use e-portfolios in D&T
This course aims to help D&T teachers implement e-portfolios into their classes from year 7 to 13. By showing you the benefits of such an approach and helping you to begin to produce your own through the course and gain confidence and understanding.
• To develop teachers' understanding of the use of e-portfolios to support teaching and learning, for example in preparation for tackling the Design and Technology GCSE non-examined assessment.
• To develop teachers' technical skills and understanding of terminology, for example publishing, embedding or uploading assets.
• To consider the range of available options for hosting an e-portfolio and related assets and the benefits and limitations of each.
• To encourage teachers to feel confident in taking the first steps in creating e-portfolios with their students.
Design and Technology (D&T) is the inspiring, rigorous and practical subject which prepares all young people to live and work in the designed and made world.
