Great piece of news via Search Engine Journal, finally, we can upload photos directly to blogger.com blogs, just like in MSN spaces, no more messy installing of hello!/picasa clients.

This posting by Graham Attwell mentioned the growing interest of eportfolio in Europe because of “an increased interest on personal learning” … “and of course it’s partly due to the ongoing pressure for lifelong learning”.
Attwell defines the following activities in developing a portfolio:
* Identifying learning and achievement
* Reflecting on learning and achievement
* Recording learning and achievement
* Validating learning and achievement
* Presenting learning and achievement
and the sentence that i find most interesting follows: “Assessing plays no part in this.” this really makes me ponder, does assessing a portfolio ‘kills’ a portfolio? if so, how are we going to resolve the assessment issue, which is one of the core concern of our teachers? *hmm*
