Instructional Technology Portfolio
- ISTE Standards for Teachers for students in the general Masters Program.
- ISTE Standards for Technology Leaders for students in the Computer/Technology Program.
- AASL Media Specialist Standards for for students in the Library/Media Specialist Program.
A set of instructions have been developed for the portfolio. There is a different handout for each of the three Instructional Technology concentrations. Each handout includes general instructions about what to include in the portfolio, as well as a listing of types of class projects that address the different Standards. It also lists a set of skills to be demonstrated. Finally, it describes how the portfolio is to be evaluated.
- Portfolio Instructions for General Masters Program
- Portfolio Instructions for Computer/Technology Endorsement Program
- Portfolio Instructions for Library/Media Specialist Licensure Program
Students working on their portfolios need to read this handout carefully before they begin, so that they organize their Websites appropriately, using a set of specific professional standards, and then include appropriate types of projects associated with each standard. An important part of the portfolio is text providing commentary by students about the purpose of their projects and how they address the standards.
The instructor will give you a grade of S (satisfactory) or U (unsatisfactory) as the final grade for your portfolio. The basis for this grade is described on a handout that provides rubrics for assigning grades of A,B,C, or D on seven criteria for each standard and five overall criteria: Evaluation Criteria Handout
Since each Instructional Technology concentration uses a different set of Standards, there is a slightly different evaluation form for each:
- Evaluation Form for General Masters Program
- Evaluation Form for Computer/Technology Endorsement Program
- Evaluation Form for Library/Media Specialist Licensure Program
To see what an excellent portfolio might look like, here are links to a few examples of well designed portfolios completed by former students. They are grouped by the type of Masters program these students were completing. Note that each portfolio includes a page that lists the aforementioned standards, with links to related material that demonstrates how they were fulfilled.
