Description

This text gives sound practical advice to student writers on constructing portfolios on the Web, including planning and drafting; using templates, integrating graphics and multimedia; and revising, editing, and publishing the finished product.

Based on current scholarship in the discipline,The Web Portfolio Handbook suggests that the Web is an ideal medium for portfolio writing, arguing that the very concept of a portfolio, whether paper or electronic, is hypertextual. By creating web portfolios, which include not only implicit links but active hyperlinks between artifacts and reflections, authors synthesize the products of their learning-both for themselves and for their audiences. To this end, the text gives sound practical advice to student writers on constructing portfolios on the Web.

Features

  • Walks students through the process of planning, constructing, editing and publishing a Web-based portfolio.
  • Includes step-by-step instructions on using Netscape Composer to create Web portfolios. This is particularly important because it utilizes the most commonly used, free, HTML editor available and doesn't bog students and teachers down with the need to learn HTML.
  • Provides a thorough, practical introduction to using graphics, sound, and video in web portfolios.
  • A full chapter (7) provides guidelines for developing portfolios for professional development or the employment market.
  • A comprehensive Companion Website includes the following features:
    • Further information about web development and advanced techniques.

    • Links to download sites for freeware and shareware web development tools.

    • Links to other teachers' web portfolio sites.

    • Examples of student web portfolios, including those used in this book.

    • A secure forum for teachers to exchange ideas about web portfolio development.

    • A forum for students to exchange ideas about the portfolios they're creating.

    • An opportunity for students to volunteer links to their own portfolios so they can be showcased in a Web Portfolio Gallery.
