All education students at Ball State are required to create a digital portfolio to show their progress and development as pre-service teachers. In addition, students are required to purchase an Apple laptop to use throughout their teacher education program.   

Your digital portfolio will include your teaching philosophy, your interpretation of InTASC Standards, and artifacts such as sample lesson plans, photos, video clips, other multimedia, and Web 2.0 items you create. You will begin creating your portfolio in SPCE 201.   

Instruction for creating your digital portfolio occurs in SPCE 331, a one credit course that focuses on learning to create, edit, and upload your digital portfolio. You will also learn to use your Apple laptop in this course. Additional information and support for portfolio development can be found on the Portfolio Support site
