Portfolios fall into two different types. (Epsilen allows you to do both at the same time.)
  • Internal (learning or reflection)
  • External (showcase or accountability)
Reflection a key part of keeping a portfolio. Why is this artifact in my portfolio and why do I want to keep it here?

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.

Portfolio Tools
Online Tools - How do we embed these in portfolios?
Portfolios need to be dynamic, living documents. The web is not a place to park stuff
