Welcome to our e-portfolio page. Over the following months you will use this tool to help you create your own e-portfolio using a WIKI. This process will help you reflect on the kind of MYP learner you are becoming and showcase your work in different knowledge areas.

Have Fun!

Digital Portfolios


  • Area of Interaction: Human Ingenuity
  • Significant Concept: It is important to discover how we learn best in order to grow as a life long learner.
  • Unit Question: How can I document and reflect on my own learning process in order to develop and grow as a learner?

Week 1 to 3: Investigate



Task 1: WIKIs

Discuss with your teacher and classmates what a Wiki is. Use the following questions as reference.
  • What is a WIKI?
  • What kinds of WIKIs have you used?

Once you have done that just click on Add link and your link will be added to your page.


Here you can find a video that explains what a Wiki is.



Task 2: Digital Portfolios

Explore different Portfolios, digital or paper versions.
  • What are they?
  • What is its purpose?
  • What are the features of a "good" portfolio?
  • What kind of information do you find there?
  • What kind of information should not be shared in a porttfolio? Why?
  • In the case of Digital Portfolios, What Web 2.0 tools have been used?

Visit the following e-portfolios, they belong to teachers and students.
Christianne Cowie
Hellen Barret
John Smith
Lara D

Go to your journal and create a link (following the same process you followed the previous week) for a student portfolio you liked. Briefly describe the strengths and weaknesses of this portfolio. Always remember to frequently SAVE your work.

Task 3: Create your New Wiki


In order to complete your e-portfolio you need to start a new space using WIKISPACES. In order to have a free of charge Wiki with no Ads on it, follow this link Create your Wiki, once you log into your account using your password and username you will find a window that looks like this.
Captura_de_pantalla_2010-01-13_a_las_16.44.42.png
Add your name and last name as your WIKI name. For Wiki Permissions click protected and then tick the educational use box. Click create and after a few seconds you have created your own Wikispace for your e-portfolio.

Week 4 and 5: Design and Plan


This week you will satrt designing your Portfolio. Go to Manage Wiki and then to Settings under Look and Feel. There you can explore different themes. Choose the one you like the most and select it. Don´t worry later you can always change it to another one.

e-portfolio checklist

Look at the following Checklist for completing you e-portfolio and create the different pages. Add your titles, subheadings, anything you want.

5th Grade E-Portfolio


Look at the checklist again, you can download it and print it just by clicking on it and create a timeline for your project. How long are you going to take in each step, what materials, samples, photos, etc. do you need to collect, Write it down and give it to your teacher who will give you some feedback and guidance on how to achieve your purpose. You know where you want to get (Your final version of an e-portfolio) now think of the steps you need to take in order to get there.

Here you have our technology Rubric to see what are the different achievement level indicators. The checklist and rubric are essential tools for you to complete your plan, look at them carefully.



e-portfolio Assessment Rubric


Criterion A: Investigate : Maximum: 6
Investigation is an essential stage in the design cycle. Students are expected to identify the problem, develop a design brief and formulate a design specification. Students are expected to acknowledge the sources of information and document these appropriately.

You generate one design, and made an attempt at giving some kind of justification to it.


6 - 7


5 – 6


You generate one design, and made an attempt to evaluate it against the design specification. You have given some kind of justification to the design.

Criterion B: Design - Maximum: 6
Students are expected to generate several feasible designs that meet the design specification and to evaluate these against the design specification.
Students are then expected to select one design, justify their choice and evaluate this in detail against the design specification.

Criterion D: Create - Maximum: 6
Students are expected to document, with a series of photographs or a video and a dated record, the process of making their product/solution, including when and how they use tools, materials and techniques. Students are expected to follow their plan, to evaluate the plan and to justify any changes they make to the plan while they are creating the product/solution.Students will sometimes embark upon a very ambitious project, or they may encounter unforeseen circumstances. In some circumstances a product/solution that is incomplete or does not function fully can still achieve one of the levels awarded for this criterion.

Criterion E: Evaluate - Maximum: 6
Students are expected to evaluate the product/solution against the design specification in an objective manner based on testing, and to evaluate its impact on life, society and/or the environment. They are expected to explain how the product/solution could be improved as a result of these evaluations.
Students are expected to evaluate their own performance at each stage of the design cycle and to suggestways in which their performance could be improved.

performance and begin to suggest ways in which these could be improved.


6 - 7

You evaluate the success of the product/solution based on the results of testing. You provide an evaluation of your own performance throughout the design cycle and suggest improvements.



Criterion F: Attitudes in Technology - Maximum: 6,
This criterion refers to students’ attitudes when working in technology. It focuses on an overall assessment of two aspects:

  • personal engagement (motivation, independence, general positive attitude)
  • attitudes towards safety, cooperation and respect for others.
By their very nature these qualities are difficult to quantify and assess, and assessment should therefore take into account the context in which the unit of work was undertaken.
