Planning a portfolio

Posted on 11/11/13 by Adobe Education Last updated on 6/8/17


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.
