E-portfolios in preservice teacher education as a means of enhancing science communication

E-portfolios were introduced to all final year Education students across seven units. High proportion of Maori and Pasifika students. In Curriculum Subject Science students had a choice in assignment – traditional essay or an e-portfolio task.
