How to Build a Student Portfolio Infographic
By definition a portfolio is a container of documents that provide evidence of someone’s knowledge, skills, and/or dispositions (Barton & Collins, 1993; Bird, 1990). Today’s students are the most accomplished and the most connected. Back in the day, no one needed a resume until they were out of school. Now, even middle schoolers are being asked to submit completed resumes to apply for summer programs. This is why an up to date, professional portfolio is now a necessity for students. A portfolio’s goal is to showcase your talents, skills, projects and recognitions. The How to Build a Student Portfolio Infographic shows the differences between old and new ways of building student portfolios.
