I often forget just how powerful blogging can be as a part of professional growth. What George Couros calls attention to is something I need to remind myself of all of the time. It is why this format won’t die, and why it can be a huge benefit to the way in which we reflect and show change over time. Here are my favorite parts:
1. A focus on both a “growth portfolio” and a “showcase portfolio.”
2. An opportunity to focus on “traditional” literacy.
3. The ability to use a wide array of “literacies”.
4. The ability to develop an audience.
5. Developing a voice.
