My Portfolio Competency
This is my collection of artifacts that are selected to demonstrate
specific competencies in portfolio development knowledge and skills. I
have been researching, presenting and writing about electronic
portfolios since 1991. This collection shows the growth in my thinking
about electronic portfolio development between 1991 and 2004.
I developed this Expert Exhibit on Electronic Portfolios for Apple
Computer as an Apple Distringuished Educator. I was flown down to
Apple's office in Austin to record the video clips, which I am not very
pleased with the results. Some day I will redo the whole exhibit, with
new video clips.
These specific papers published on my website highlight the change in
my thinking about electronic portfolios between 1994 and 2004.
This is my web site on electronic portfolios in education. I started
working on this website in 1995, on the server that I set up for the
University of Alaska Anchorage School of Education. I bought my own
domain names in 2000, and have been updating it ever since. You might
say that this web site contains the archive of my professional work in
electronic portfolio development since my research started in 1991. I
actually have three URLs that point to this same page:
I started to experiment with blogs in the spring of 2004. Within a
couple of months, this blog has been highlighted on several lists of
recommended educational blogs. I have enjoyed writing in this blog, to
use it as a way to explore my own thoughts and reflections on my
experiences. As a result of writing in this blog, I am experimenting
with other tools, as well, to see how various blogging software would
work to construct e-portfolios.
