In a recent conference presentation, Mark Prensky stated, “For today's kids to learn, engagement is more important than content.” He continued, “Content won't help students learn throughout their lives, but engagement will.“(Prensky, 2005). What better way to engage students than that of teaching through real-life, collaborative projects allowing students to publish via their learning efolio. This presentation will provide a practical solution for engaging students in their learning environment through web publishing that is easy, economical, and provides a safe working environment for students. The ePortfolio is Internet based and easily follows the student throughout his/her educational career. The ability to share documents allows for peer editing and teacher commentary. Student efolios will be shared as well as research collected in the project. Techniques for replicating the project will be available, including teacher training, student training, and portfolio development.
