Digital Portfolios are a great way to display student learning and curate student work. There is a lot of potential in providing students the opportunity to develop web design skills, learn digital organization, and enhance their written/oral communication. Digital Portfolios allow students to both share and learn.
Turning portfolios digital increases accessibility, allows for collection & reflection over a longer period of time, and expands student voice.
