Directions for the Portfolio Planning Document
The Portfolio Planning Document (PPD) provides the framework for the Professional Portfolio. The PPD is used to help you link the actions you engage in and the artifacts that result from those actions with Professional Standards. The PPD is basically a chart you use to connect Artifacts with Standards. As part of the PPD you will provide the following information:

  • A minimum of two artifacts per standard indicator (1.1, 1.2, etc.) artifacts may not be used more than one time

  • A short description of the artifact

  • The name and format of the artifact

  • A rationale for how the artifact is aligned with standards

  • A reflective statement of what you learned related to teaching and learning from creating the artifact

  • A reflective statement on how you have increased or impacted student learning as a consequence of engaging in activities related to the artifact with supporting citations from the literature in APA format.

Students in the LMS concentration will use AASL standards. Students in the EDTECH concentration will use the ISTE standards. Students will use the template provided for the PPD and submit it to Blackboard for grading.


Here are some step by step instructions to help you get started with the PPD.


  1. Review the Professional Standards and Standard elements for your Concentration area (AASL or ISTE). They are posted in the Portfolio Area of Blackboard and can be found online at: AASL Standards or ISTE Standards

  2. Review the PPD Chart for required items needed, such as artifacts, rationale, etc.

  3. Discuss with your cooperating media/technology specialist any projects you can engage in during the practicum that would help you meet any of the standards and how they could be expressed in “artifacts”

  4. Review Critical Performances from LME program courses to determine if you want to incorporate them into your Portfolio (http://edtech2.wku.edu/portfolio/search_criticalperf.php)

  5. Review school based initiatives/programs you are involved in to determine if you want to incorporate these artifacts into your Portfolio

  6. Review the sample PPD entry and begin to complete the Chart and identify areas of the Chart that are incomplete; work with your cooperating media/technology specialist to plan experiences and artifacts that would meet these standard elements

  7. Create your impact statements using research on the relationship between literacy, libraries, and technology with student learning. Suggested readings are included in a folder in the PPD area of Blackboard. Cite these resources in the PPD document using APA citation style.

What did I learn?

How has it impacted student learning? How is it connected to best-practice literature on student learning?

Standard 1: Teaching for Learning: Candidates are effective teachers who demonstrate knowledge of learners and learning and who model and promote collaborative planning, instruction in multiple literacies, and inquiry-based learning, enabling members of the learning community to become effective users and creators of ideas and information. Candidates design and implement instruction that engages students' interests and develops their ability to inquire, think critically, gain and share knowledge.

Include: Name of proposed artifact, Format of the artifact, a Brief Description of what the artifact/activity is. A minimum of 2 artifact per standard indicator is required.



 

Each standard has several standard element. Each standard element has many statements associated with it. Read the statement for the standard element and write a brief statement explaining why your chosen artifacts are related to the standard-element.



Write a brief description of what you learned from creating and using these artifacts or engaging in these activities (first person required).



Write a brief description of how creating these artifacts, engaging in these activities, and using them with your students has helped you to increase student learning. If you have not directly assessed student learning describe how the activity is an example of best practice as cited in the literature on best practices on increasing student learning.



1.1 Knowledge of learners and learning: Candidates are knowledgeable of learning styles, stages of human growth and development, and cultural influences on learning. Candidates assess learner needs and design instruction that reflects educational best practice. Candidates support

the learning of all students and other members of the learning community, including those with diverse learning styles, physical and intellectual abilities and needs. Candidates base twenty-first century skills instruction on student interests and learning needs and link it to the



Evidence for this standard is a Learning Styles Inventory that was given to pupils to assess individual learning needs and modes of learning prior to instruction. The Inventory, student work sample, and reflection are included in one MS Word document

The Learning Styles Inventory I gave to my students is aligned with Standard 1.1 because it demonstrates that I am able to assess learner needs and design instruction based on that assessment.

As a result of administering this assessment instrument, I learned that using only one mode of instruction (lecture and worksheets) was not meeting the needs of many of my students who the learning styles inventory indicated were social learners. For that reason I revised my instruction to include collaborative group work.

I believe that by engaging in this assessment activity I demonstrate I can identify learner needs and develop instruction based on best practices. In this case, I revised my instruction to include collaborative group work. As a result of the activity, I noticed student scores on the lesson rubric increased from last year’s results. Research on learning styles indicates that achievement scores will increase if students are allowed to engage in their preferred mode of learning (www.edutopia.org)

EXAMPLE:

Technology Skill Module 5: Advanced Word from LME 535

This artifact is a document created using advanced features of Microsoft Word




The Advanced Word document from LME 537 represents my skills and abilities with Microsoft Office tools which are part of the school’s educational technology curriculum. This artifact aligns with Standard Element I.A. because it demonstrates my skills and understanding in an important technology application I use with my students and enables me to integrate technology effectively into the curriculum

I learned from creating this artifact that there are many features of Microsoft Word that can be integrated into the existing curriculum by incorporating them into lessons, activities and projects with the goal of improving written communication

Creating this artifact helps me to increase my student's learning because by mastering the skills, knowledge, and understanding of Advanced Microsoft Word features, I can offer my students more tools and methods to complete lesson activities and projects, and help them to improve how they use MS Word to communicate their understanding of content. Research indicates that integration of technology into the curriculum increases student achievement (caret.iste.org)
