To ePortfolio or not to ePortfolio, that shouldn’t be the question.

I admire how Harapnuik, Thibodeaux, and Cummings embrace an ever-changing future and how “you need to help them learn how to learn and prepare them to be adaptable, flexible, and innovative”, which is indicative of the need for a product as unique as an eportfolio– delivering the content that came from a unique journey.  Journeys like these are  urgently needed in the times of selfies and on-demand information at your fingertips we live in. Yes, young learners like to go and show. It would be really unfortunate if we didn’t build capacity to give students choice, ownership, and voice over their digital domain through learning environments and pedagogy that provides authentic assignments that gives the student the opportunity to solve real world problems in their own institutions or organizations and show those solutions through their eportfolio. I completely agree, narrative provides explanation–this expository form of affirmation of know-how creates a peculiar sentiment of importance within the speaker; an elevated awareness. The learner not only has a record and direction but most importantly the leaner has a voice and platform. I think the use of eportfolios in class should eportfolios should be a standard because it is an opportunity to conquer not just the platform and the content but you can definitely conquer your realization.
