Developing the Framework for your Educational
Technology Foundation Standards Electronic Portfolio
Using the PowerPoint Slide Show
Stage 1 - In PowerPoint, prepare your
Create a Master Card that shows your name and the
name of the group of standards you are demonstrating.
Set up the portfolio demonstrating the ISTE/NCATE Educational
Technology Foundation Standards
Create a card for each indicator, by copying the
text into the "outline view"
Copy the Performance Indicators into the document
Stage 2 - Collecting
the Artifacts - The Working Portfolio
Interject personality into the portfolio design.
Use some of the graphics capabilities of the card layouts to add style
and flair to the portfolio.
Identify the portfolio artifacts (examples of your work,
hopefully in electronic form) or experiences you have that demonstrate
that you have met this indicator. You might set up some way to list all
of the artifacts that you have collected and how they might demonstrate
On your hard drive, floppy disk or server, store the
artifacts into electronic folders for each standard to organize the artifacts
(any type of electronic document).
Use appropriate multimedia to add style and individuality
Use a scanner (or camera) to digitize images [Level
Use a microphone and sound digitizing program to digitize
audio artifacts [Level 4]
Use a video camera, digitizing hardware and software
to digitize video artifacts [Level 5]
Stage 3 - Selection,
Reflections & Direction - The Reflective Portfolio
Write a reflection for each performance indicator that
explains why you think you have demonstrated achievement of this performance
indicator. In other words, how you think you have accomplished this standard.
Some authors recommend that reflections be written for
each artifact, to explain why it is in the portfolio.
Write a brief reflection on why this artifact should
be included in your portfolio.
The portfolio becomes a lifelong learning tool, when we take these reflections
and set goals for future learning.
For each performance indicator, write a statement about what you still
need to learn in this area, setting some reasonable goals for yourself
so that you can achieve this standard.
Stage 4 - Adding hypertext links to
become a Connected Portfolio
PowerPoint has the capability of making links (Insert Menu
-> Hyperlinks...), but the links only appear to work in Slide Show mode.
A better way to add links to a PowerPoint presentation is to convert the
files into another format, shown below.
Convert the files to Adobe Acrobat
Check the Page Setup (and Click Options) to make
sure that the "orientation" is "landscape" before printing the file to
Also, do not use Animation or "Builds" in the original
Convert the files to HTML and edit using Netscape Composer
