Purpose of my e-Portfolio
This ePortfolio includes examples of my personal and professional progress as a graduate student. In the home page, there are my collection works that show my learning journey over time. In this portfolio, one Standard from ISTE NETS for Teachers is covered, which is "Facilitate and Inspire Student Learning and Creativity". Through cooperative learning PowerPoint, I was able to "engage students in exploring real world issues and solving authentic problems using digital tools and resources."I created this ePortfolio for students. This ePortfolio is to store my files for future and use them as resources to my students. By this ePortfolio, I will be able to integrate technology into my class and display some files for my students. I will be able to identify strengths and/or weaknesses to help with future professional development decisions.
