Resources on Blogs as Digital Portfolios

As more organizations and classrooms are looking at “digital portfolios”, I wanted to compile some of the information I have either curated or created on the topic.  I really believe in creating a blog as a digital portfolio, which is more than simply a blog, and more than simply a portfolio, but a combination of the best of both worlds.  The blogging component is hugely beneficial to show growth of learning over time, while also developing multiple facets of literacy, while a “portfolio” adds a component that gives us an opportunity to show our best stuff.

A Blog/Portfolio (perhaps a “blogfolio”), is great for learning purposes because it gives the creator of the space an opportunity to showcase learning while building a digital footprint that will be beneficial long after their time in schools.  It also allows students multiple ways to showcase their learning since basically anything I can see or hear, I can now make digital and link into their space.  The possibilities are endless.

    I’m taking an online class on integrating technology in the classroom and just recently started a new blog as part of the requirement for the course. I started following you on twitter because I noticed that a lot of your tweets were so relevant to my profession, my growth and development as a teacher, and what I’m hoping to accomplish. Thank you for sharing your insights, knowledge, and web ideas. Right now I’m kind of overwhelmed with all the technology and tech tools out there and feeling somewhat anxious about blogging because it’s my first time. But I’m hoping by following you on Twitter and your blogs, I can do well in my course and successfully integrate technology in my class. More power to you!
