MyPortfolio in NZ
I think of MyPortfolio as the "mothership" for Mahara: An enormous multi-insititution system across New Zealand, the country where Mahara was first invented. Statistics as of April 2013:
- 1,256 institutions
- 50,134 active users (logged in at least once)
- More than 9,600 groups
- More than 285,000 pages created
Blog page from a PD session in October 2012. Lots of links from this page to various examples and artefacts.
Software for Learning web articles
Nicely laid out online magazine articles, from a national website that recommends software for NZ teacher use. Most of these have embedded examples and companion videos
- ePortfolios in High School English
- Inquiry Based Learning (Google Apps and Mahara)
