The focus for this article is on the use of Information and Communications Technology to facilitate Self‐ Regulated Learning and reflection on professional practice through an e‐portfolio diary/journal system. PP+ is a third generation e‐portfolio development of software initially developed at the University of Wolverhampton in England. PebblePad+ is a transferable e‐portfolio system that enables students to track their own professional competences and development over the length of their academic and professional career, as well as supporting their wider learning. It has been adopted in a variety of educational and industrial contexts both in the United Kingdom and Australia. This article will be of particular interest to those educationalists that recognise the importance of reflection in building powerful cognitive structures through Self‐Regulated Learning, as well as the potential benefits of using Information and Communication Technology to create an e‐portfolio of a student’s academic and professional achievements.
