Portfolios: Blog 6
A website for inspiration: http://www.ncrel.org/sdrs/areas/issues/students/earlycld/ea5l143.htm
When we started to think about what presentation type we wanted to use there was almost no question in our minds that we wanted to do a portfolio. I had never really done an official portfolio before so I decided to Google it and see what came up. The very first search result was the website that posted above. This website is very helpful because it talks primarily about portfolios from a student’s perspective. It begins by defining portfolios and goes into great detail of the uses of the portfolio.
This website includes information that is well thought out and organized. It has specific information about what types of portfolios are used and what they contain. This information is very helpful for someone who has never done a portfolio.
Another great thing about this website is that it includes the benefits and shows what a portfolio can add to your project. It even contains other resources, including books and other websites, that will help you along your way to making a portfolio. This website is a source for which I found a majority of my inspiration.
We also had to think about the format of our portfolio and what we wanted it to look like which was very important to us.
Then I found the website: http://www.coroflot.com/public/help_portfolio_tips.asp
This website primarily dealt with the format of portfolios and how to catch the reader’s eye. This is probably the most important thing about a portfolio. It had multiple tips to improve your portfolio, and it was short and to the point. This as well as the other website were great for finding inspiration.
