Hello Everybody, I'm a graduate student in a program about Distance Education.  I'm very exciting to be working on a project about the design of eportfolios for early childhood (ages 0-8) with parents, family, and children as co-creators.  I am looking for something which can be scaled and is fully open.  Not sure that Google+ is ready to compete with something like EduBlogs, but seeing open source stuff out of Mahara, and feeling pretty hopeful...but sometimes a mix of something commercial and something open (like Google+ is most sustainable).   Just wondering if anyone has created eportfolios for classrooms, schools, or kids.  It's easier to do the pro-D and professional communities on here.  Also, I've been looking at some apps like EasyBlogger Jr. and wondering if they can be used with Google+ on ipads or androids.  Any feedback?

As an ongoing commitment to working in the open and learning about making the web, here is the latest project I have been involved in - along many others (some from #OOE13). My character is 'Sappho', the storyteller.
You can join the fun too while you learn digital skills and storytelling DS106-style.

 Starts June 21, a Digital Storytelling 106 Summer 'Family Reunion'.
Click the timetable on the website for the program events.

I've signed up for this; I am particularly interested in the creation of OERs.

Building

Develop open educational resources that embed web literacy and making skills with other topics, such as history or biology (or that you might already be teaching). Using open practices, you'll make learning materials that are relevant, free and designed for others to use and remix."
