E-PORTFOLIO CREATION & SUPPORT

E-Portfolio

Purpose:

A digital catalogue of your projects, assignments, over the course of your journey will benefit you.

1. Everything you want to showcase is in one place

2. Web publication forces you to pair down exemplars and write tersely

3. As you curate your experiences and reflect on what you have begun, your identity as a burgeoning educator takes further shape

4. Your body of work should help to inform your ideal student placement focus as well as your initial areas of employment interest


Pedagogy:

In my experience in schools: students, curricular units, programs, and departments organize around online platforms.


Your work designing an e-portfolio has direct implications for your work in the classroom

A. Teachers have a class site that incorporate the core practices of site creation/maintenance

B. Students create and maintain mini-sites: demonstrating standards progress, to house project work, and to satisfy third party validation (Ib, AP)

C. Educational Technology (real time/ formative assessments ) connect with most hosting providers
