This communication discusses the implementation of an ePortfolio designed to encourage self-regulation in learners. First, it presents the Québec political context from which the necessity of providing students with a competency based education arises. Second, a brief literature review provides some arguments about the development of technological competencies in learners and teachers and about the orientation that pedagogy can take. This study strived to answer two research questions: 1) After using an ePortfolio during a school year, what are the pedagogical activities that teachers identify as being valuable to conduct with students? 2) What are the teachers’ perceptions of the influence of an ePortfolio on student learning and on their pedagogical approaches? We conducted interviews and a focus group with French Québécois teachers. The results of this grounded theory show that the ePortfolio implementation was a good experience for some teachers, but other teachers faced more important issues during the implementation phase.
