Open Portfolios Project
The Open Portfolio Project is aimed at developing technology solutions and a common set of practices for portfolio creation, reflection, sharing, and assessment. Through our investigations we will develop a guiding philosophy of what constitutes an open and decentralized lifetime portfolio system for makers, with the goal of developing a portfolio system that can be created and managed by any student/maker; aggregated by schools, community organizations, and informal learning institutions; and be independent of any single website or software. We hope to revisit the utility of portfolios as a central tool for lifelong learning and as a viable alternative to current assessment practices.
A collaborative effort between partners of the Maker Education initiative and the Creativity Labs at Indiana University.
Support for this project comes from the Moore Foundation.
