Kathi framed her talk in terms of "radical change, not much change." Also used the NSF How Students Learn and the Alexander Astin research to frame changes in students. Some key points:
Stickiness: talked briefly about the role e-portfolio has had on teacher retention.
Assessment: student gets to identify what she values in her portfolio, in her education; assessment standards / goals emerge within her own reflection and organization.
Integrative learning: showed a student who was able to see connections among course work and life as part of his integrated learning; a hard concept to assess because the student has to map the learning. Having the archive / collection in place is important for students to be able to see connections.
Crystal Ball: ePortfolio as a place to do work. Has a robust set of tools: blogging, pages, IM, etc. Not just an archive (although it should be a digital repository.
Delivery changes delivery: what's the process, sequence?
What (new?) language describes thsi new work/ play?
What are the (new) rhythms for learning?
Personal Potential Index: can be illustrated through portfolios.
