Dr. Helen Barrett
Portfolios fall into two different types. (Epsilen allows you to do both at the same time.)
- Internal (learning or reflection)
- External (showcase or accountability)
The showcase aspect of a portfolio can be a PR tool for yourself and what is going on in your classroom. Share what your students are doing with the world.
