[ISEA2022] Poster: Quelic Berga-Carreras, Laia Blasco-Soplon & Javier Melenchón — Identification, socialization and professionalization of art and design students through a techno-pedagogical model

Poster Statement 

June 13-15, CCCB Vestíbul Theatre 

Keywords: Constructivism, Design Based Research, e-portfolio, network learning, WordPress

We are working on the construction of a tool and network of e-portfolios [1] based on WordPress that invites students to create their own identity.. That provoke the generation of a network and a community promoting peer learning. With it we promote the creation of a professional portfolio throughout life. With this project we want to find out what impact the integration of open content managers such as WordPress, which are rich in interactive media, has on learning management systems, specifically on Art and Design students. Our objective is to reinforce the idea that an online learning model benefits from being centered and based on the process of identification, socialization and the potential professionalization of the student.
