Mahara ePortfolio for Transition from High School to Post-Secondary

May 10, 2012

Learning Agents will work with Springbank Community High School in Calgary to update and enhance their Mahara eportfolio system for post-secondary transition, based on Springbank’s needs and lessons learned in developing Career Portfolio Manitoba, an innovative Mahara eportfolio system for adults in transition.

This work will include:

  • Creating a new student template for Springbank, integrating the best of the current SCHS template and a youth-adapted version of the Career Portfolio Manitoba template.
  • A model eportfolio, working with a young person who will be a fictional exemplar (this technique has proven useful in Career Portfolio Manitoba.)
  • A series of video tutorials showing students and teachers how to create and display content in their eportfolios with the tools demonstrated in the template and model eportfolio. At least one tutorial will demonstrate how to manage privacy and security settings.
  • Two days of in-service with SCHS teachers during exam week in January 2013
