Editorial Reviews

Erin Powers
"Teaches you how to build a portfolio and shows the potential benefits of the portfolio process. Qualitative research, which is essentially what portfolios lead to, is beneficial for teachers because it forces them to reflect on what actually happens in their classrooms. I can't think of a more powerful tool for learning and growth."
Barbara Cambridge
"Novices are introduced to the wide scope of considerations regarding adoption of digital portfolios. For experienced practitioners, frames and matrices help to identify their own practices in relation to those of others. "
Teacher Librarian
"The chapters are crafted for the inexperienced person confronted with keeping and maintaining a digital portfolio, but there are plenty of recommendations for the reader who has some experience but who needs fresh ideas to spice up the portfolio in preparation for an accreditation visit or in searching for new employment."
The Bookwatch
"Experts in the field provide educators and libraries catering to both education professionals and businesspeople with an excellent survey to creating a digital portfolio that accurately communicates professional goals and achievements."
From the Foreword by Barbara Cambridge
"Novices are introduced to the wide scope of considerations regarding adoption of digital portfolios. For experienced practitioners, frames and matrices help to identify their own practices in relation to those of others."
