About the webinar
This webinar will provide an overview of a unique pilot project exploring the value of adding a webpage/eportfolio to an Aboriginal Art Class process in a Junior Secondary College in Victoria.
Discovering self-identity through storying in online portfolios, in tandem with artistic and creative classes (e.g. art, music, dance, drama, writing and media), aims to promote engagement for students by reconnecting them to cultural heritage and society; and as a beginning to imaging their future self and repatriation of identity.
The pilot project results are very encouraging, and the researchers are working towards a full implementation of the learning model, Aboriginal art-making + ePortfolio, in a new project, this time focussing on music as the art-form. As well as outlining the pilot project outcomes they will show some student examples, talk about the technology hitches that led to using PebblePad as the ePortfolio format, and discuss plans for future directions.
