A blog is an abbreviated version of the term “Web Log” – blogs have been around for close to ten years and were one of the first ways average people created content for the Internet. Watch this CommonCraft video if you need to learn more about what a blog is and does.
- Use WordPress to create a professional digital portfolio – follow the template above
- Your blog needs to be complete through the current unit (Digital Literacy by 10 P.M. on Monday, January 28th. You will then add to the blog following the completion of each subsequent unit.)
- Your link will be attached in Edmodo.
Learn WordPress – lots of tips, tricks, and essentials
- LW-E’s Word Press blogs:
- this one contains your template – http://demodigicomp.wordpress.com/ –
- https://digicompportfolio.wordpress.com/ – this blog contains all of the same units that appear in your Moodle, plus information on which standards are explicitly met by the products.
- http://englishtechie.wordpress.com/ – this blog is about technology integration in education
- http://larissatechportfolio.wordpress.com/ – this blog is your teacher’s masters portfolio
- go to: WordPress
- check out other blogs to see content, design, etc. (I like this post)
- become familiar with the template you need to follow for your digital portfolio
- create an account and a new blog – name it something formal/professional
- linked to from your Linked In profile
- links/image included of quality work from this class and other classes/experiences
- reflect on your experiences – again, follow the instructions in the template blog
You are using WordPress to create a digital portfolio of your best and revised work in this class, and for work you are proud of from other classes.
Each assignment for this class (see the examples – you may copy & paste as needed) should have its own post.
Each post should be formatted as follows: PLEASE VISIT THE DEMO PORTFOLIO FOR ADDITIONAL HELP
- summary of assignment
- embed, upload, or link to what you created to fulfill the obligations of this assignment
- which technology standards (ISTE) this assignment addressed (you should plan to copy & paste this information from the sample portfolio blog)
- a personal and professional-sounding reflection on what you learned from creation, revision, collaboration, etc.

Make your WordPress blog look like a website instead of like a blog.
