The ePortfolio is a handy tool for a variety of activities. One of the ways this feature is being used in elementary school is for content area projects.
In the examples below, this 4th grade teacher is using the ePortfolio as a project-building tool for a social studies project on the topic of Native Americans. The students have used the blog within the ePortfolio to show what they know about particular Native American tribes. There are multiple benefits to using this tool in itslearning for this purpose, but the main benefit is that the ePortfolio follows the student and future teachers can see their students' progression from one year to another.
