Electronic portfolio technology can be used in different contexts to create classroom communities in which everyone, not just the teacher, cares about each student's learning. The authors describe how students in an urban middle school, undergraduate teacher preparation program, and graduate leadership program used an electronic bulletin board and portfolio process to make all of their work public. In these classrooms, student work was not simply handed in to the teacher, graded, and quickly forgotten.
