Digital Portfolios Training
Digital portfolios are the foundation of EDUCOA, capturing
all activities that will occur within the Innovation for Life
In the first two pilot months, EDUCOA worked with
teachers and administrators extensively to set up Evernote
accounts and learn how to use Evernote by making use of
EDUCOA's 'Introduction to Evernote and Creating Digital
Portfolios,' a teacher's manual on Evernote and digital
portfolios (excerpt to the right).
Teachers recieved close assistance from each of the
school’s IT teacher and the designated
EDUCOA coordinator for the region.
In February 2015, the program integrated working with
students to create Evernote accounts. Guided by their teachers, students created notebooks for their academic
subjects and wrote in their Journal notebooks to practice
writing and reflection.
