Reflections - 4-26-2020 - Why Use An ePortfolio?
Great reads provided again this week. In my opinion I feel that one of the main reasons to use an ePortfolio is to show growth and to be able to show a potential client and/or employer who you are and examples of your work. I never thought of utilizing an ePortfolio before entering this program as I am not very tech savvy. Technology continues to expand, and we utilize it every day in our current jobs. This will be a wonderful addition to ones resume or job application. It will allow the potential employer a better understanding of one's strengths, knowledge, and potential. Companies are looking for innovation and this is one way to demonstrate that. I have been thinking of ways to get my high school students to begin tracking their school and community involvement. This is important because when they start applying for scholarships and for colleges, they can never remember everything they participated in and it becomes difficult when trying to complete those applications. Introducing this to the high school campus for the coming school year will be an amazing step towards helping them grow academically and helping them be able to track their growths and begin preparing their ePortfolio for their lives after graduation.
