Erasmus+ co-funded a project on the Assessment of Transversal Skills (ATS2020). Since 2015, 17 partners from 11 EU countries are developing scaffolding tools, training teachers and piloting in classrooms across Europe with students aged 10 to 15 years. The aim: to show that formative feedback, used in a learning cycle which empowers the learner to take up responsibility for her/his learning is the way to develop 21st century skills such as critical thinking, learning to learn and digital skills. The platforms for such an innovative approach to skills development are ePortfolio platforms in which students can showcase their artefacts, receive and give feedback and reflect on their learning goals and strategies.As the project is approaching its end, various good practices and case studies are published in a repository (https://resources.ats2020.eu/). If you search there for "ePortfolio", for example, you can find some lesson plans, but also video testimonials of students who report about their ePortfolio work in class.The final conference of ATS2020 will be an additional space to share the...
