Blogfolios for teachers

Students benefit from maintaining online multimedia portfolios of their work – blogfolios – according to Jason Ohler, author of the book ‘Digital Storytelling in the Classroom’:

“As part of the technology infusion coursework, each student creates a ‘blogfolio’ that serves as both a work repository and reflection venue throughout the year. The work they create includes digital stories, documentaries, slide presentations, diagrams and artwork, podcasts, screen casts, lesson plans, units of instruction and essays. A typical blogfolio entry consists of a reflective text piece, which includes links to media they have created for an assignment that they have posted on the web using services such as YouTube, SlideShare and Google Docs.”
