Business educators in middle schools and high schools across the country play a prominent role in developing the knowledge, skills, and attitudes necessary for students to succeed in the workforce. With the advancement of technology, business teachers are coming back to the teacher education program to be retooled and retrained to teach business education. These returning in-service teachers are not only overwhelmed by the technical aspects of the Internet, spreadsheets, and databases, but also by the new pedagogy that has come about in the information age. A portfolio at the K-12 education level is a collection of a student's work that can be used to demonstrate his or her skills and accomplishments. It may include other features such as teachers' evaluations and student self-reflections. In business education, a portfolio may be used to demonstrate a student's achievements in specific subject areas or it may be used across the curriculum to assess abilities in all subject areas. Electronic portfolios contain the same types of information as the print-based portfolios but the information is collected, stored, and managed in computer-based programs. Five types of portfolios have been widely accepted in business education: development portfolios, teaching planning portfolios, proficiency portfolios, showcase portfolios, and employment readiness portfolios. Returning in-service teachers need to gain more knowledge regarding electronic portfolios, and how to modify rubrics to evaluate students' portfolios. The aim of this paper is to provide an overview of the use of electronic portfolio as the course framework in pre-service and in-service teacher education programs of business and vocational education. This paper also discusses one example of electronic portfolios: OCED 6315 Advanced Information Technology at the College of Technology, University of Houston. (Author/AEF)
