E-portfolio
It is rare that you will find something in a course that is yours for the rest of your life. Well here it is. You will have and OWN an e-portfolio from which to teach. Your own web presence. Many students have contacted me after and sometimes during station that it was the reason they were hired in a new position or received a promotion. Most enjoy it!!!!

For examples of e-portfolios and the videos, student worksheets and lesson plans which can be posted there for public and private school students visit Dr. Lehrer's tech showcase on Lehrerx.webhop.org.

For instruction and multimedia tutorials visit www.professorstein.com and click on e-portfolio create.

This is a creative term project and hopefully one that you will continue lifelong.
PLEASE NOTE: Professor Stein is a Field Experience and Practicum professor. A limited number of students can be assigned to him for Field Experience and practicum. If you so request and are selected you will be allowed to use current lessons and student worksheets in those courses and gain additional experience with Educational Technology.

Oh yes. You can link to other public lessons on the e-portfolio sites of classmates as well.

Look ahead! This term project will be completed during the next to last session.

E-portfolio - Here we go!
It is rare that you will find something in a course that is yours for the rest of your life. Well here it is. You will have and OWN an e-portfolio from which to teach. Your own web presence showing current and future employers that you know technology and how to teach with it! Many students have contacted me after and sometimes during station that it was the reason they were hired in a new position or received a promotion. Most enjoy it!!!! Oh yes did I mention it is FREE!

Ok So what do you do with an e-portfolio?????- Many have reported getting a position and/or a promotion because they demonstrate that they know content and can teach using technology.
Website video tour of Kim Here is her site http://schools.webhop.org/tourokdapolitorudolfsky/
Website video tour by Mayen . Here is her site http://schools.webhop.org/touromdavis1/
Review these sites see how well students present themselves. Accomplishing this without showing your face is possible and acceptable.
1- The first step is to create new pages- Lots of them so that you know how with repetition
2- Second step is to take your heading on your heading on your home page and to copy it to the top left column on all the pages you have created.
Make sure your heading is correct.... I have full directions on the e-portfolio page on the left sidebar
View  THE STEPS - Click the e-portfolio page on the sidebar-
It will tell you how to search for help (youtube.com with search words "google site add video", ask questions on BBDB FAQ.)

IMPORTANT: YouTube.com is an alternative to teachertube.com (on teachertube it is not easy to place  the video on your google site

When you have created pages with your heading tell others with a message to BBDB FAQ and BBDB e-portfolio. If you can, copy the URL (address when viewing the site) and paste it into your message thread)


PLEASE NOTE: Professor Stein is a Field Experience and Practicum professor. A limited number of students can be assigned to him for Field Experience and practicum. If you so request and are selected you will be allowed to use current lessons and student worksheets in those courses and gain additional experience with Educational Technology.

Later in the course we will show you more COOL STUFF.....Feel free to go ahead and explore SEE E-portfolio Page on the left sidebar) BE CREATIVE. MAKE THE SITE YOURS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
