I find it inconceivable that in this day and age anyone should be expected to produce paper-based Portfolios. However, I have attached this YouTube video hoping that readers will play the game of attempting to work out how many problems can be overcome by producing an electronic version, ie an ePortfolio.
For instance, can two or more people see this at the same time? Can different aspects of the Portfolio be hidden/removed so as to make it more readable for different audiences? What about costs? or updating? etc... etc..
Above all, can a paper-based system really present the whole life-story of the owner? His/her multiple personas? Is there any possibility of providing feedback from peers or respected adults?
