Planning a portfolio

Posted on Nov 11, 2013 by Adobe Education Last updated on Jun 8, 2017


Portfolios communicate accomplishments, works in progress, or personal history. In this activity, students plan and organize content for a portfolio that will feature work they have completed and work to be completed. They determine the audience, goals, and structure of their portfolio and organize the portfolios content through creating a flowchart. As students plan their portfolios, they reflect on and evaluate their work.

I feel the 'How to plan a portfolio' PDF would benefit further from using an interactive format. This would facilitate student interest and connectivity to the project, and the content within it. I am now doing this (http://edex.adobe.com/resource/cb8a5410/) for all of my assignments with my media students, and the feedback from them states they thoroughly enjoy this format, as it gives them a platform to keep track of what they do and how they do it.

The fact that students can interact with a document of this nature also tends to keep them focused on what is required.
