  1. Encouraging Self Regulated Learning Through Electronic Portfolios

  2. Our Mission • To conduct solution-oriented research on problems of academic failure and underachievement. • To study the acquisition of foundational literacies and core academic competencies. • To develop technology-enhanced learning environments. • To focus on Quebec with a pan-Canadian and international outreach.

  3. Our e-Portfolio Project • Multi-year, multi-disciplinary, collaborative, international research and development project. • 2000-present • Team: educational psychologists, instructional designers, designers/programmers, RECIT, ICT and ELA consultants, researchers, teachers, students • Quebec Users: LEARN; nine English school boards; nine French school boards; BJEC, Hebrew Academy, St. Georges, and The Study private schools; and two pre-service teacher education programs. • Beyond Quebec: Manitoba Education; Division Scolaire Franco-Manitobaine; six school districts in Alberta and one preservice teacher ed. program; four school districts in Portugal and U. of Lisbon; Rainbow District School Board (ON); school districts in the U.S. (Oregon, South Dakota, Vermont, West Virginia) and Australia, England, France, Spain, China.

  4. The ePEARL Process • ePEARL is more than a multimedia container • ePEARL is more than a tool to showcase students’ work • ePEARL is a knowledge tool which scaffolds and supports the process of self-regulated learning. • What is self-regulation? • Self-regulation refers to personal thoughts, feelings, and actions that are planned, and then revised, to attain personal goals. • Self-regulation is a cyclical process because the feedback from prior performance is used to make adjustments during current efforts.

  5. Self Regulation Learning (SRL) • Learners with high levels of self-regulation • Have good control over the attainment of their goals and seek mastery outcomes • Can focus on the process of how to acquire these skills and learning outcomes—meta-cognition • Have higher levels of self-efficacy • Have higher levels of achievement • SRL relates and prepares students for the ‘real world’ • SRL provides ownership over learning • SRL creates lifelong learners

  6. What are Effective Self-Regulation Processes?

  7. The Software • Web-based, bilingual electronic portfolio software that is both a learning (process) and presentation multimedia tool. • Levels 1 - Early Elementary; Level 2 - Late elementary; Level 3 - Secondary • Student, teacher, parent and administrator environments. • It is available at no charge to schools. • Designed to encourage self-regulated learners within student-centred classrooms

  28. Teachers: PD & Support • Materials for both students and teachers should address the how, when and why of goal setting, planning, monitoring and reflecting • PD for teachers should include printed as well as online formats • Using Grayling’s (2002) five key characteristics:Context specific; Useful; Obvious to invoke; Non-Intrusive; Easily Available

  29. Support for Teachers In-context Help

  30. Support for Students • Embedded student support in all three levels; • Short video clips (2 min.) for help with: • portfolio process, • goal setting, • reflection, and • feedback.

  31. ABRACADABRA • Evidence-based, modular early literacy software accessible via the web • Currently used in: • Two QC school boards • Two Alberta school districts, one Ontario district • Australia • Pan-Canadian research project in Ontario, Alberta, and Quebec • See

  32. ISIS-21 • Inquiry Strategies for the Information Society in the 21st Century. • Current funding - Inukshuk • One year - $100k • Prototype of Module 1 and 2 for late elementary students • Team: CSLP, LEARN, EMSB, Manitoba Education • See • Future funding - $1.5 million • Four bilingual modules for teachers, students, librarians and parents for grades 3-12.
