Marketing Text This guide, intended for trainers or facilitators in charge of leading a teamwork, provides an overview of digital tools for the realization of collective skills Portfolios.
Description This guide includes two parts. The first part offers an expanded view of existing tools, by identifying the features that could be transferred through a process of Collective Competence Portfolio. The second part develops, in a practical way, some examples of using tools by linking them with the pedagogical scenario as described in “A Collective Competence Portfolio for teams in the Third sector (1) - From collective competencies to team empowerment.”
Target group This guide is intended for the counselors or facilitators in charge of conducting a Collective Competence Portfolio workshop with a team.
A wide range of digital tools can be used to develop, organise and/or to publish Collective Competence Portfolios. In the case of portfolios developed collectively from group work, these digital tools can be used in several ways. They could support creative ways to elaborate collective contents. They could also be used to create productions to be published in a public way (ie on the organization’s website).
These digital tools could thus be used:
- As method supports for times of group discussion and reflection on the team’s capabilities, new areas of activities or possible projects, ... In this case, electronic tools are used to produce intermediate work and activity documents, for internal use.
- As media releases of final products, constituting part or all of the collective Competence Portfolio, and can also be used for communication about what the organization has to offer and its abilities.
The use of digital tools provides opportunities that would not not possible with traditional paper tools: collaborative features, playfulness, the ability to associate media content (slideshows, audio, video, ...).
Area of application
The use of these tools should be simple, not requiring too much training time for users or for facilitators, so as not to break the momentum (or energy) of the proposed approach.
Promoting the use of some features provided by “general” tools rather than the use of platforms dedicated to the creation of ePortfolios (which require the use of a pre-defined structures), keeps the spirit of an open approach. Indeed, involving participants in a search on the content and structure of a collective competence portfolio is one of the steps, to encouraging meaningful reflection.
