Types of Portfolios- An Essay
This assignment was interesting. At first, I was thinking that it was just about the actual work of embedding a written document into a website, not meant to be thought provoking, and more about the busy work of it. But as I was writing it, I realized that writing about it was really making me think about it. In thinking about it I was making connections that I hadn't made before, and I came up with the question:
If a picture is worth a thousand words, how many words is a podcast? How about a Youtube video, or a Screencast?
It seems so obvious to me now... but it didn't just 20 minutes before writing this. By writing about portfolios, I was solidifying their value to me, and their value in the professional sphere. As someone that wants to progress in my career and the educational field, a polished and well thought out portfolio is going to be my greatest asset and best friend.
