There are many ways to put together a teaching portfolio. For this class, the portfolio you put together will focus on the relationship of technology to your teaching and professional development, so it will differ a bit from what you might put together for a job application or at the end of student teaching. My hope is, though, that it can be used, in part, for those purposes. You may create your portfolio in any medium you choose. It could be on a blog, in PowerPoint, a written document, a combination of writing and video. So, you could do a video reflection instead of a written one in some cases. It should include the following:
1. A statement of your approach/philosophy in using technology in your teaching.
2. An explanation of how you will use technology in your professional development.
3. Your three projects, plus a reflection on what you learned from completing them, what you might do differently, and how it fits with your teaching philosophy (or not).
4. An encapsulation of your blog posts and their connection to your statement on your approach to teaching with technology. This should be a summary/reflection on what you have learned through these posts aside from the projects you’ve done.
5. Anything else you’d like to include: things done outside class that are relevant. This is completely optional.
Any of your reflective pieces may include video, images, audio as well as text.
The portfolio is due on Feb. 11 and will be presented to the class on that day.
