[Spring Workshop 2023] Beyond the ePortfolio: Enhancing digital literacy with Pebblepad

Friday June 2, 2:00 – 2:20

Session Description

Digital literacy has become a critical skill for students to succeed in the digital age. As educators, we must ensure that we equip our students with the necessary digital literacy skills. The use of technology such as Pebblepad can aid in the integration and development of digital literacy skills. This presentation aims to explore the integration of digital literacy using Pebblepad as the key technology. Pebblepad is a digital learning platform that offers various features to support learning and assessment. PebblePad can be part of an institution-wide digital education strategy to support effective personal learning and other innovative technology-enhanced teaching. Specific examples will be highlighted to show how we have used our ePortfolio tool (Pebblepad) as a way of enhancing digital literacy within specific courses at Langara College. Using Pebblepad to strengthen competencies related to digital writing and reading, the digital design of content and materials, and the skills to edit, publish or share them on the web will be demonstrated. The presentation will also provide some practical and lived experience for participants on how Langara came to pilot Pebblepad as an educational tool with diverse uses. Reflecting on “What? So what? Now what?” (Driscoll and The, 2001) in connection with this pilot, we have identified important lessons.
