Abstract

e-Portfolios have the potential not only to act as repositories for student artefacts, but to provide a powerful tool for reflection in learning. This paper details a study within a doctoral project that investigated the use of an ePortfolio to increase engagement of pre-service teachers in the process of reflection. The learning environment utilized the PebblePad ePortfolio platform to facilitate the Enculturation Teaching Model specifically by providing exemplars of good practice, opportunities to interact with other students, and activities designed to improve reflective skills. This paper examines the reported engagement of the students with the exemplar and activity prompts used within the ePortfolio platform to facilitate reflection, and how students engaged with the ePortfolio as technology. Issues that arose throughout the implementation are also discussed. The paper concludes with recommended revisions and refinements for future iterations of similar learning environments
