This paper describes a model for using electronic portfolio as a professional development tool with practicing early childhood educators and as a teaching tool with graduate and undergraduate early education students. The investigator utilized selected dimensions of the Classroom Assessment Scoring System™ to measure classroom quality and to guide veteran teachers in an inclusive special education preschool to reflect on process quality indicators in their own teaching practices. Digital photographs, video, audio, and other forms of documentation were made of teacher-child interactions, of learning activities throughout the day, and of the teachers’ reflections on their own behaviors. These multimedia artifacts, stored in an electronic portfolio archive, will also be used with undergraduate early childhood and early childhood special education pre-service teachers, to facilitate inquiry and discussion about elements of teaching and learning that illustrate indicators of process quality.
