Electronic Portfolios provide a useful means of promoting as well as assessing the development of student learning over time. The most effective electronic portfolios link student reflective practice with products and performances, which indicate a hands-on and applied acquisition of practical skills and knowledge involving learning technologies. The process of action-reflection is important in that it helps people develop more appropriate and effective ways of working. Moreover, it develops independent learning, and fosters a problem-solving, solution-orientated approach to the learning process. To what extent, then, might student reflections serve as a reliable indicator of effective learning in general, and of applied use of learning technologies in particular? This paper thus considers the connection between student reflective practice and effective, applied learning within the authentic contexts of learning represented by electronic portfolios. It will further discuss the question of how best to evaluate and assess student reflections as a part
of a developmental process linked to specific portfolio products or performances.
