In Fall 2008, I set up a ning.com community to connect KSU 4401 Seniors with interested stakeholders with the mission of networking the seniors for career and citizenship goals. The community, which is optional for the KSU 4401 Seniors, has been growing with members willing to network our seniors. Ben Cope, of EPOC Designs & Internet Genius, taught me about setting up a Web 2.0 community using ning.com. This project is truly a community of foliothinkers with the goal of helping graduating seniors honor, understand, and connect their learning from self to global citizenship through the powerful act of networking.
For the past ten years I have been using the “Folio Thinking Process” as the main focus on my courses on transitional learning. I introduced the use of portfolios in my KSU 4401: Senior Seminar (institutional capstone course) in 1998, to encourage the students to honor, understand, and connect their learning as they prepared for post-university life. The following year, I began using the Folio Thinking process in the KSU 1101: First Year Seminar class. Over the past ten years, I have heard such positive feedback from the students creating an archive of their learning, for their own self reflective and for sharing their time and talent from self to the betterment of global society. Throughout the ten years of embracing Folio Thinking, I have explored and evolved with the emerging technology that allows us to share, relate in community, and see our learning from exciting new perspectives. I call this exciting self-view of learning using portfolios the “Kaleidoscopic Process”. Dr. Helen Barrett, international leader in ePortfolios and my mentor in reflective learning using portfolios, has cited my portfolio metaphor on her website, I am extremely honored to her for this: http://electronicportfolios.com/metaphors.html#other
“E-Portfolio as Kaleidoscopic Process: Reflective View from Self to Global Society
Just as a kaleidoscope needs light to view the endless possiblities of visual combinations of the colored glass, a e-portfolio provides the illumination for the learner to view the endless possibilities of the potential views and connections of her/his learning experience from self to global society. (Dr. Joan E. Dominick, Kennesaw State University – http://www.eport2passport.com/) and http://www.joandominick.com.”
Currently, i am studying how paper, multimedia, Web 1.0, and Web 2.0 (socially connected portfolios) are developing and providing a continual enrichment of the kaleidoscopic process of viewing your learning and connecting it to society for the better good is constantly evolving. I am committed to all people honoring, understanding, and connecting from self to global society for the better good and share with powerful learning practice will all people in our very connected home world!

I am exploring the use of creating iPodcast Portfolios. Students will create a series of podcasts to be used as part of an ePortfolio or for the entire ePortfolio. They can be posted on a Website with or without a protected passcode or as part of the KSU Online Career Portfolio.
