So far, across the nation:
Digital portfolios, or ePortfolios, have been required by design colleges. But now, students applying to any college should create a digital portfolio to stand out from GPAs and test scores. Colleges and universities are inviting, and even expecting, students to attach an ePortfolio to their application. It shows extra effort, student grit and unique interest in the school.
Eportfolios show a student’s whole picture, their soft skills and connects their learning across subjects. Students should create a digital portfolio early in their academic careers. That way, educators can deliver personalized curriculum and help each student find their most suited college or career path.
An ePortfolio enhances the work students are required to do, benefits their college application and helps leave a memorable impression to decision makers. Digital portfolios support both schools and students. The evidence is in the growing movement.
