Technology CompetencyThese artifacts represent my skills in multimedia development and web page authoring. I have developed a CD-ROM using Adobe Acrobat and QuickTime movies. In addition, there are Digital Stories that are posted in another collection, and my web site which showcases my knowledge and skills in electronic portfolio development.
What is Web 2.0?
This is a "course" that I created to introduce different elements of Web 2.0 tools that can be used in support of electronic portfolios.
ePortfolios with GoogleApp - http://sites.google.com/site/eportfolioapps/Home
ePortfolios with WordPress - http://sites.google.com/site/eportfolioswp/home
These sites provide tutorials and resources on using these Web 2.0 tools to create ePortfolios.
ePortfolio Mash-Up with GoogleApps
This web page contains my design for using GoogleApps for Education to construct an online learning environment with GoogleApps. As I have discussed in a September 2008 blog entry, I think this is the best free Web 2.0 toolset that I have found to support electronic portfolio development across the lifespan. It is available to individuals as well as to institutions. I am continuing to explore these tools, providing training to schools in New Hampshire.
I developed a CD-ROM in 2002 to use in workshops and to sell on my website. I made a major revision in the spring of 2004, adding Digital Storytelling to support deep learning.
Using Adobe Acrobat for Electronic Portfolio Development
This paper outlines Adobe's Portable Document Format as the ideal container for electronic portfolio reflections connected to digital artifacts, describes the software environment, and then describes the process for converting digital artifacts from many applications into the Portable Document Format, and maintaining a cross-platform, web-accesible, hyperlinked digital portfolio. I received an award at the SITE 2001 Conference as "Best Technical Paper."
