I have been looking into options to create an eportfolio for my students, in order to collect, store, and exhibit their work. Since a few teachers expressed interest in this topic, I decided to make a tutorial on how to create a World Language Eporfolio using Google Drive.

Many thanks to:

Catherine Ousselin, AATF Technology Commission, for initial brainstorming.

Susie Dyson, my Spanish colleague, for helping me test Google Drive.

Helpful resources:

LinguaFolio “I Can” Statements

Getting started with Google Drive

Other great tools out there:

8/3/13 Edit 1) Linguafolio
The perfect tool for a World Language portfolio  and where the “I Can” statements originate from. At the time of this post, the online Linguafolio pilot is closed and according to the CASLS, it is supposed to be able available to school districts “for a small fee in the near future”. In the meantime, you can download the portfolio and “build your own”. Click here to download.
2) Livebinder
Organize and share your resources for a particular course or unit. It only 100MB space for free ($30 for 500 MB, $130 for 50 GB at the time of this post). Also,  XL and word documents do not open for editing, you have to download them at the time of this post.
3) Skydrive 
 Microsoft version of Google Drive but only 7 GB space for free and you cannot share a folder, only the content of a folder (sub folder, documents, etc.). Need a Microsoft account.
4) Evernote
Capture anything (notes, web links, pictures, etc.)  wherever you are on whatever device you have in your hand. Syncs everything up. Has a sharing/editing capability but need to pay a premium ($45 at the time of this post)
