Elgin High School Electronic Portfolio Guidelines and Template
What is a Portfolio?
The portfolio is a collection of student work reflecting an individual student’s progress, activities and achievement during their time at Elgin High School. Portfolios at Elgin High School are electronic and designed through LiveBinders.com. The site is free and students will have time dedicated during their Comet Pride period to complete their portfolio.
You are being asked to complete a portfolio for many reasons.
Your portfolio will be a record of your work over the course of your school career at Elgin High School. More than test scores and grades, the portfolio is an opportunity for you to compile and share your best work – presenting a more vivid picture of your abilities and growth over time.
The digital portfolio allows you to incorporate a variety of media in a professional manner. They are easy to manage and update and can be readily accessed and shared. These qualities make the digital portfolio an effective self-promotional tool when you are ready to apply for an internship, college entry, or professional career.
Portfolios are also a centerpiece for student- led conferences.
