My Technology Competency
These artifacts represent my skills in multimedia development and web
page authoring. I have developed a CD-ROM using Adobe Acrobat and
QuickTime movies. In addition, there are Digital Stories that are
posted in another collection, and my web site which showcases my
knowledge and skills in electronic portfolio development.
Common Software Tools for Creating and Publishing Electronic
Portfolios. These short guides were developed to support the stages of
electronic portfolio development, from the collection/digitization
process, through the selection/reflection construction/hyperlinking
process to the final publication process. I developed these guides as
part of the Apple Learning Interchange Exhibit.
I developed a CD-ROM in 2002 to use in workshops and to sell on my
website. I made a major revision in the spring of 2004, adding Digital
Storytelling to support deep learning.
This paper outlines Adobe's Portable Document Format as the ideal
container for electronic portfolio reflections connected to digital
artifacts, describes the software environment, and then describes the
process for converting digital artifacts from many applications into
the Portable Document Format, and maintaining a cross-platform,
web-accesible, hyperlinked digital portfolio. I received an award at
the SITE 2001 Conference as "Best Technical Paper."
