Step One: Student Voice: What did you learn about yourself by creating your portfolio?
With the student's permission, this student's quote on creating a portfolio is posted on my foliothinking webpage to inspire future foliothinks, I have been using portfolios in the senior-year seminar since 1998:

My ePortfolio Vision:
"Use Folio-Thinking to Honor, Understand, and Connect Your Learning from
Self to Global Society for the Betterment of Both"
"Give College Seniors a lecture on ePortfolios and they will have an interesting class for the day,
Teach College Seniors the power of ePortfolios and they will folio-think for a lifetime"
"Just as a kaleidoscope needs light to view the endless possiblities of the colored glass, an eportfolio
provides the illumination for the learner to view the endless possibilities of the potential views
and connections of her/his learning experiences from self to global society"
