Creating ePortfolios with WordPress

Presentation Title: Creating ePortfolios with WordPress

Presentation Description: Imagine a world where students are no longer judged by a lone essay, an individual transcript, or single letter of recommendation. ePortfolios allow students the ability to showcase their life-long learning and potential for growth well beyond the confine of the classroom walls. ePortfolios have the potential to transform the way educators access student readiness for future courses, advancement and college admissions.

Using a blog platform as the launching point for an ePortfolio, provides students the ease of sharing their knowledge with a platform that is easily transportable from one academic year to the next, from one school district to the next, one country to the next. In addition, a blog allows students the freedom of expression and power to control who and what others are reading about them on the web. Teaching students to have a handle and take control of their digital footprint is essential to their digital literacy skills.

An ePortfolio created in WordPress is a simple tool we can provide students to begin to have a place to analyze, create, evaluate and reflect on their learning as they travel on their journey of learning. This presentation illustrates the ease of creating an ePortfolio in 8 simple steps. Come play in the sandbox of blogging, and see how many doors we can open up to help celebrate learning with our students.
