Tonight I am publishing my digital portfolio. Although it reflects much of the work I have been doing over the past year in my Instructional Technologies and Digital Media Literacy program, it is really a compilation of my entire professional life. The portfolio is meant to show who I am as a teacher, who I used to be, and who I plan on being. In other words, it shows my growth as a teacher. As I mentioned in a previous post, the new name of my blog focuses on change because I am continually growing and changing as a teacher. Because of this, my digital portfolio will continue to change as well.
I chose to use Wix to create my site. I found it was very easy to navigate and had more options than I could ever use. After I decided what to include in my portfolio, the bulk of my time was spent in designing the site. I was fortunate to receive feedback from my colleagues on a draft version, even while I was in Morocco. This helped me to add features such as a place for feedback and comments, a blog roll, a section for reflection and more.
Although I am pleased with how my site looks, I am never fully satisfied. One of my first priorities now is to design a logo to go on each of my sites (flavors.me, this blog, my digital learning hub, Google+, Twitter, etc.). This will help make my work more recognizable to others who stumble across it. I also would like to make the look of my sites more consistent across the board.
Without further adieu, here is my digital portfolio. Please feel free to comment on the site.
