Presented by: Michelle Larose-Kuzenko michelle.larose-luzenko@gov.mb.ca


Advantages of ePEARL for Students, Including Students Who Face Challenges in Their Learning

1. ePEARL allows for differentiation for students with different learning needs and different learning styles. Portfolios can be created by using a simple word processor, by recording orally, and by uploading files, including photos and short videos.
2. The Sharing function allows students to reach an audience that can provide positive feedback.
3. The Collaborate function allows students to work together.
4. The Personalize function allows students to create an interface that they customize to represent themselves. This gives them a certain control over that aspect of their learning.
5. ICT is often a great motivator to persist at a task.
6. The step-by-step "wizard" approach to ePEARL provides students with a scaffold to guide their learning from goal setting to reflecting.
7. The many prompts, questions, reminders and tips remind students of where they are and what they need to do next.
8. The short videos speak in the voice of the student.
