PortfolioGen - Create Teacher Portfolio Pages

PortfolioGen is a digital portfolio service that I reviewed last spring. At the time it was a good service but it didn't support video embeds. Yesterday, I received an email from PortfolioGen announcing that they now support videos in teachers' portfolio pages. In addition to displaying videos of their work teachers can write "about me" pages, highlight their certifications, upload documents, and link to other examples of their work. PortfolioGen pages have contact forms for potential employers to use to get in touch with teachers. Click here for an example of a PortfolioGen page.

Applications for Education
If you're an educator looking for a new job who doesn't have a digital portfolio yet, PortfolioGen provides an easy way to quickly create one. Even if you're applying for jobs that don't require digital portfolios, it is still a good idea to have an easily-accessible page that highlights your work.
