Abstract

Abstractâ??Teachers have to work with e-portfolio with their students. This is a very demanding task because they never were educated with e-portfolio themselves. Therefore a European Comenius project was submitted in 2005. In this approved project a whole week formation (april 2007) was offered to nineteen teachers from all over Europe. A year later they will meet again to see in what way the course has had effects on their work with e-portfolio and students. Most interesting to notice was that the basic ICT-skills of teachers are nowadays realized. However teachers are still busy with text and text-files. Rarely they uploaded multimedia, like e.g. photoâ??s, videoâ??s, youtube-movies, â?¦ in their e-portfolio. The essential element of an e-portfolio, the personal and professional development plan, that forms the backbone of the e-portfolio and offers the possibility to make the e-portfolio an effective learning instrument was unknown.
