Digital Portfolio as a Professional Development Tool

Autor: Dominik Fellner, St. John´s College - Teachers´ Training College, Czech Republic



Digital portfolio is not just a well established form of company presentation. It serves as an on-line CV allowing a detailed outline of one’s professional growth, open for editing and actualisation at any time; it serves as a tool for sharing ideas, materials and work results in form of texts, audiovisual files as well as links with multileveled system of safety measures; due to its archival and aggregation features it provides its user with significantly enhanced job mobility – all you need to chance a job is a net connection, login and password; due to its monitoring potential it serves as a tool for personal and professional development; last but not least it offers a solid background for unlimited virtual team creation. With Web2.0 all these functions have become an easy and available reality for open public. The presentation will be focused on single digifolio aspects, their mutual cohesion, the privacy settings the owner may exercise and the possibility of on-line co-operation with practically anyone in the world.
