Folio Thinking: Personal Learning Portfolios


Folio Thinking The Folio Thinking Project is a collaboration of six research groups at three universities—the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH), Uppsala University, and Stanford University. These research sites represent different cultures, educational contexts, and student populations; however, we are all implementing portfolio activities. We believe that the reflective practice of creating portfolios enables students to document and track their learning; develop an integrated, coherent picture of their learning experiences; and enhance their self-understanding. Through our collaboration, we will develop tools and techniques to teach and support Folio Thinking in any learning context.
