MS in Educational Technology Electronic Portfolio

Master of Science in Educational Technology Program Electronic Portfolio

All master’s candidates completing the Master of Science in Educational Technology at Eastern Connecticut State University must complete a Comprehensive Electronic Portfolio assessment reflecting their competencies in fulfilling the standards outlined in the ISTE (International Society for Technology in Education) National Educational Technology Standards (NETS) and Performance Indicators for the Educational Technology Foundations for All Teachers, found at, and the Connecticut Common Core of Teaching. This is an additional requirement beyond the EDU 570: Capstone Seminar portfolio.

What is a Portfolio?

A portfolio is a collection of materials–bound in a single document–that shows what candidates know and are able to do as teachers. It is a picture of professional competence–a detailed snapshot of candidates’ unique skills, understandings, and dispositions. All portfolios will be quite different, as they represent the distinct abilities of individual candidates. However, there are elements common to each. In the portfolio, candidates must demonstrate their acquisition of competencies outlined in the ISTE (International Society for Technology in Education) National Educational Technology Standards (NETS) and Performance Indicators for the Educational Technology Foundations for All Teachers and the Connecticut Common Core of Teaching.

The Educational Technology electronic portfolio contains the following sections:

1) cover page and table of contents,

2) matrix documenting the candidate’s fulfillment of the standards, referencing page numbers within the narrative or exhibits in the portfolio,

3) resume,

4) narrative – responding to the five themes of the ISTE and CCT standards with references to classroom applications and graduate studies,

5) statement of professional goals,

6) a curricular project developed using educational technology applications with a detailed description of the process of development, implementation with students, evaluation, and revision, and

7) collection of other documents–samples of professional work, drawn from classes and teaching experiences, which demonstrate specific competencies.

The documents comprise the largest section of the portfolio and may include such items as lesson plans, curriculum webs, constructed instructional materials, samples of children’s work, photographs of classroom activities, software reviews, resource files, and other artifacts that show candidates’ abilities. All entries in a portfolio are authentic–that is, they are drawn from real life situations and reflect candidates’ very best thinking and teaching.

For more information about electronic portfolios for the MS in Ed Tech program, please download the Eastern CSU’s MS in Educational Technology electronic portfolio guidelines.
