As you know, I've been looking for ways to maximize my effectiveness in terms of getting hired and was wondering about online portfolios. I read thatt eacher portfolios are a relatively new idea in the general education field and I assume putting them online is even newer. One of the gals here pointed me to a website hosting company so I decided to take the plunge last night and throw together a quick online portfolio for myself. (Actually, it took me about 7 hours to do this. :haha My idea is to keep adding to it as I go along with my TEP (Teacher Education Program) and eventually add my POE, a sample lesson plan, etc.. . I'm going to put the web address on my résumé. Do you think a portfolio is effective? And what about an online one? Are they anymore effective than a real, physical portfolio or one on CD? Your thoughs please. Anyone else here consider doing an online portfolio?
