The cluster milestone and 2011 variation has been handed in and will hopefully get a big tick. As part of the variation it says that the facilitator is to keep a digital portfolio and to coach others to do the same.
As an ELF facilitator (eLearning Facilitator) I was thinking about that. What would you consider to be a digital portfolio for a teacher?
Would you consider my Edublog, my blog record of my professional development, our Moturoa class blog, my Tweets, my 365 photoblog, my Delicious trail, my Blogger resource blog, my podcast, podcasting wiki and my RSS feed to be a digital portfolio?
All of these things are public and I sometimes feel the need to write and share something to garner the opinions of others or just to vent my frustrations but don’t because I realise the line between being open and respecting the privacy of my colleagues and the children in my class.
Would maintaining a private reflective journal that no one apart from myself ever sees, shares or reviews be of any use to myself or others?
Your thoughts would be appreciated.
