District Databases/Academic Records/Learner Portfolios


My idea here is that each person should own h' record of learning experiences. When the learner is young the parents are custodians of the record. When the learner comes of age 'e takes control of it. There are all kinds of issues that must be addressed as we implement a records system including access, privacy, reliability and completeness. Today (2009) most academic records are handled by the schools or universities that have issued credit for courses and exams taken. But centralized systems of medical records are being explored worldwide.
