    I am taking suggestions on how to update my teaching portfolio from 6 years ago. What is cutting edge these days? What elements should/could I include? Is digital better than paper? Just want to get the thoughts of other professionals. :welcome:

    I have a paper portfolio as well as an online portfolio. I included my classroom and behavior management plan, philosophy of education, and sample lesson plans in both versions. In the paper portfolio (which I plan to take to interviews), I used Google Sketchup to create a diagram of what my classroom would look like.

    Thanks Jen. How did you create your online portfolio?

    I'm not really into this scene, but I'd hazard a guess that sticking some common core alignment into your sample lessons would go over well, if the climate in my principal's office is anything to go by...

    I created mine on Weebly. It is very easy to use and there are many templates to choose from. Another option would be Google sites.

    I also use Weebly for my portfolio. It is great and super easy to navigate.

    It allows me to show some of the technology I use in class. Principals want to see that you know know how to integrate technology.

    I think I might work with Weebly. :) I would love to see some samples. I am going to do an old google search I suppose.
