After going to a conference in 2010, I decided to start a blog. I did a few scattered posts but I’m not great at self promotion and few people saw what I was writing. So, I stopped.
About a week ago, I read Resources on Blogs as Digital Portfolios by George Couros. I have been trying to wrap my head around digital portfolios but just couldn’t figure out what it would look like.
I read Couros’ post on this and went through the links he provided. I spent a couple of days thinking about it and decided to give it a try. As the tech coach at my school, I offered to help grade 12 teachers to set this up with their class and to help with any problems or issues that arise.
I looked into WordPress and Weebly as two blogging platforms that might work Then I remembered that I had started a blog a few years ago with wordpress. I reset my password and located my blog. As I read through the few posts I made, I realized that this is the digital portfolio that I was looking for.
I have one teacher signed up and plan to do some one-on-one promotion tomorrow at school and plan to drum up some more business with face to face discussions.
