Building a portfolio is by far one of the most challenging tasks that your students will ever encounter because there are no set rules. There is no right or wrong way to build a portfolio. This way, your students can create a print or electronic portfolio that suits them best.
This unit can be used by students in various subject areas: Education, Journalism, Fashion, Interior, Graphic Designs, and more.
At the end of this unit, your students will have a thorough understanding of the following:
*Describe what a portfolio is
*Identify the purpose of a print and electronic portfolio
*Utilize the creative process of developing an impressive print and electronic portfolio
* Learn the 5 Steps of Portfolio Development : Plan, Gather artifacts, Update references, create support materials, Supplies and assembly of portfolio, Maintenance and use for employment and client interviews
*Describe what an electronic portfolio is and how it is developed and used
* Identify which resources are available to help with electronic portfolio development
The bottom line is this: Instead of just having your students talk about themselves from their resume, they can present their knowledge, skills, accomplishments and experience through either print or electronic portfolio.
