These are sooooo nice. What the heck? These are so cute, and put together, and professional! I want one! Although sometimes I am technologically inept, I seriously think that this would be a good thing to have or to give to future employers. Sweet!
One thing that I really really liked was a piece by Joseph Elliot, and I quote, “Within this e-portfolio, as in my life, you will see contradictions that vary in measure.” Amen brother, thanks for this vulnerability. I can foresee this being a problem in my own future e-portfolio, because there were (unfortunately) many times that I tailored essays to the views of professors. For example: my English 225 professor was SUPER liberal, and although I consider myself really really politically conservative, I wrote essays about legalizing abortion, gay marriage etc. and took positions that I didn’t agree with just to get a good grade. I am not proud of this, but it did work.
Relating the class to the e-portfolios, creating this is getting wayyy out of my comfort zone, and is expressing vulnerability, which is talked about in the pieces that we read and talk about almost every day. I’m excited to experience this new challenge and come out of it with something that I can show my friends, family, and grad schools 🙂 .
