San Francisco, California, USA

What will we cover in this PD session?
This 2 hour session is designed as an introduction to using Edufolios. Selena will take you through the basics like:
- Personalising your site
- Writing content
- Adding images, videos, certificates (and any other kind of evidence you can think of)
- Formatting your text
- Adding in (or removing) social media settings
- Creating pages for your personal statement, about me and philosophy
- How to use the security settings to lock down content
- Ideas about what to write and include
She will show examples of Edufolios created by members who have given us permission to share and answer all of your questions. Selena's been using blogs for years to capture her evidence of practice and she has some great practical tips to help you become really efficient at finding opportunities to reflect, and how to do so with teacher registration and career progression in mind :)
Who or What is Edufolios?
Edufolios, is the only online portfolio designed specifically for Australian Teachers. In fact, we're the only site creation tool that sets you up with all the Australian Professional Teacher Standards (domains and focus areas) with one click. We're also the only online teacher portfolio that's worked with the Teacher Registration Board of South Australia so that you can keep all your professional development records in one place and share your evidence for PD hours with the TRBSA directly from your Edufolio.
We're a feature rich, online, e-portfolio system designed to help you show case, evaluate and evidence your skillset and we want to help you to get the best out of your site.
Do I have to have an Edufolio in order to attend?
No. Of course not! However, we will be using the Edufoilio system throughout the session. You're welcome to come along and see what Edufolios is all about. Use it as an opportunity to case it out and decide whether you'd like to sign up. If you're curious of course, you can choose to grab a #trials4charity. You donate $5 for access to edufolios for 30 days. All of that money goes to HYPA to help young people stand on their own #twofeet. That way you can try it out with us. If you love it as much as we thing you will, you can then move onto a yearly subscription. All whilst treating someone in need to a great breakfast for a week.
A certificate will be issued for 2.hours of Professional development covering the following APSFTs
• 4.5 Use ICT safely, responsibly and ethically
• 6.2 Engage in professional learning and improve practice
Why is there a cover charge?
We've added a small cover charge to this event. All proceeds will go to HYPA - our current charity :)
- The best place to park is the UPark on Flinders Street.
