>>> Digital Portfolios or ePortfolios ..........

An electronic portfolio allows for building in reflective activities for learners and staff, through blog functions and the creation of 'Critical incident diaries' where students reflect on their learning and experiences over a given period or activity.

This becomes a two way process with a tutor or peer providing feedback via the same diary. It works as a user-centred, personalised learning space allowing the user to shape the way they present themselves to the world.

Content and layout can be personalised to create multiple Views which meet the specific, differing or changing requirements of the user. This ties in with one of the key tenets of personalised learning, that students become key partners in the design of learning to suit their needs.

Producing "authentic" learning.
Think of a 'honey pot'! It attracts and invites bees. Immersive learning involves a suite of features that attract (pull) learners and teachers into an environment that offers a wide variety of engagement points. In summary a user "wants to go there" as opposed to being "pushed" there. Users want to be a part of a dynamic environment where there is something to learn, something to publish and share their creativity.

The ability to "personalise through creativity is a powerful driver of authentic learning.

Add cyber control to give confidence, and the outcome is a immersive social learning community
