CED 555 - Week 2

This week I needed to create a template of my Portfolio and I needed to create my Mission and Vision statement. These are the first steps towards the completion of my portfolio.

I chose to use Dr. Barbara Schroeder’s Technology Teaching Portfolio template to create my portfolio. I am modifying this template to meet the requirements of Cardinal Stritch. Utilizing this template will expedite the process of making each individual page and incorporating the navigation and site links. I hope to really personalize my portfolio as I plan to continue to utilize this as a way to showcase my experiences throughout my professional career.

At this point, I am not done with my Mission and Vision statement. The link is however connected to my google doc which will contain my completed mission and vision statement. You will also be able to view my completed mission and vision statement in my Portfolio.

CED 555 - Professional Portfolio Experience Week 1

This was our first week of CED 555 - Professional Portfolio Experience. This class will help us create our final Professional Portfolio that is required at the completion of our Graduate Program. This week we were required to research examples of other professional portfolios. We needed to create an annotated bibliography and a matrix that summarizes our results. Here is a link to the google doc that I created for this assignment.

This assignment was beneficial because it gave us a better understanding of what should be included in a professional portfolio and how it should be set up. I was really glad to discover Dr. Barbara Schroeder’s Technology Teaching Portfolio . Dr. Barbara Schroeder is a professor in the Department of Educational Technology at Boise State University. The website that she created is actually a technology teaching portfolio template. This template will be quite useful, especially since I plan on utilizing the same ISTE standards for my own portfolio. Natashia Sylvia’s Portfolio was also beneficial. She utilized Dr. Barbara Schroeder’s portfolio template to create her own portfolio.

I look forward to creating my portfolio which will demonstrate all of the hard work and accomplishments that I have had throughout this graduate program. It will be a great way to reflect on and share my thoughts and resources with others.
