We have a responsibility to create innovative solutions for students to share their strengths, accomplishments, interests and needs. In this breakout session, we will explore different platforms to create a web-based living portfolio allowing students to document their journey through higher education and beyond. We will discuss the components and process of building a student directed portfolio to include: a website, online resume, blogs, LinkedIn account, etc. Students can utilize these tools in any future university, academic and inclusive settings. A self advocate will participate in the presentation of this information and share in the development of his portfolio. OBJECTIVES: 1. Learners will identify the importance of a portfolio and how it can benefit students in their adult life beyond high school and post-secondary education programs. 2. Learners will gain a general understanding of how to use various platforms in the creation of the web-based portfolio including a website, blog, videography, presentation tools, Google drive, etc. 3. Learners will demonstrate an understanding by identifying the components to include in a web-based portfolio to capture meaningful areas in the student's life, including the desired long-term outcomes in relation to an inclusive and meaningful adult life.
