Our Digital Portfolio Project

Currently, in my work as Division Principal for Parkland School Division, we are about to embark on a major process of using Google Apps for Education as well as creating Digital Portfolios for our students.  I wanted to share you with the initial document that I have been working on to begin this process.  Please feel free to use this in your own work or offer any comments/advice.

    Hi George,

    Very well articulated. You have pulled in some great resources and made excellent links between the project, the focus in Alberta and the research. I know that one of the things that you do incredibly well is support folks as they navigate through change process. You do this through establishing a genuine relationship and giving a ton of support. I think that you are going to accomplish some incredible whole – district change here and can't wait to follow along as you go.

    Hi George,

    Thanks for sharing those documents with the world. Really inspiring to see portfolio used across a school board. I use portfolio with my students in two of my class, leadership & info-tech, and I use google sites from our school wide Google Apps platform for the student portfolio.

    I have two questions for you regarding your portfolio:

    1. Why did you choose to use WordPress multiuser instead of using Google Sites?

    2. Are your WordPress blog hosted on a local server managed by your IT dept. or hosted on a web hosting service like HostPapa or bluehost?

    Look forward of your response,

    Steve Roy
