SXSWedu 2012 will always hold a speacial place in the hearts of Team Pathbrite. The 2nd Annual homage to all things Ed Tech provided the launching pad for Pathbrite as a product and company. We were lucky enough to not only sponsor part of the event, but our CEO, Heather Hiles, was selected to present at the conference. Her presentation on “Liberating Student Data Using Next Generation e-Portfolios” sparked some great discussions and debate about how students, parents. teachers and administrators can use data to improve learning outcomes. The good folks at SXSWedu have decided to share the audio podcast of the presentation and part of the audience discussion. For those of you unable to attend the event in Austin, this is a great way to learn about innovative ways to use portfolios in the learning process.
Founder and CEO, Pathbrite
Liberating Student Data Using Next Generation e-Portfolios
Students have work product, transcripts and other evidence of learning and achievement trapped inside of LMS’s, SIS’s, and other places. Innovative Higher Ed and K-12 institutions are clamoring for tools to optimize learning outcomes and tools to help their students differentiate themselves from other applicants when applying to colleges, and for highly coveted job opportunities. Our in-depth discussion of how ePortfolios can track and showcase knowledge and achievement will provide the audience information for how to optimize student success via ePortfolios. Ed Tech start-up CEO Heather Hiles will lead the discussion.
