Abstract: Walt Whitman's poem, "I Sing the Body Electric," speaks eloquently to a basic fact of being human: our need for authentic, engaging, responsive, life-altering interpersonal exchange. Starting with this vision of the human person qua artist, Stevens explains how electronic portfolios, or ePortfolios, offer teachers, students and administrators a powerful and effective tool for enriching, integrating, and streamlining processes of teaching, learning and assessment in music and other visual and performing-arts units. By integrating teaching, learning and assessment, ePortfolios enable students to create new artistic interpretations, knowledge and experiences and to participate in assessment processes. Through this process, students become reflective practitioners whose creative assimilation of learning and artistic experiences empower them to sing a new song, full with the charge of the soul.
