Portfolio, pt 9 Blog

Portfolio, pt  9 Blog

I want to show you an important part of
putting together a portfolio particularly here at Emory & Henry where
critical reflection is such a big part of our teaching. So, I want to show some
ways that you can use the blog function of Pebblepad. For starters you can go to
the burger menu and you’ll see get creative and you’ll create a blog. This
will bring up a page that looks fairly similar to other fresh pages that you’ve
made in Pebblepad this being uh the add to your blog. That being the most different
function but here of course you have the the banner and you can give it a title
if you if you like, resize the image, re focus the image, put a
different banner image in all together. But here is where we start to get into
the meat of the blog. This part here enter a description for the blog, this
part can be confusing some people think that this is where they start typing in
their first post but this is actually just an umbrella kind of term. Somewhat
redundant here with the title you may use here it’s a similar title uh, maybe this
is for uh English 101 reflections. It’s just to give it an umbrella type of term. Add
to your blog you have add a post, use a template, add existing asset uh by far in a
way that most common is adding a post. This will allow you to create a blank
blog post from scratch. You click on it there it brings up your selected banner.
And here’s a place where you simply put your title and then you can type your
text right into here and of course you pay attention to the spawn bar and
you’re able to customize the font and link back to assets uh that are already in
Pebblepad that you want to upload it into Pebblepad or you could link out into
URLs of other websites. So you can type in there. Simply save it. remember to save
continuously as you go along as it doesn’t have that auto save feature but uh
save it so you can keep up with your work. You go back to your blog and there’s
post number one and you can do post number two. This time far less common but
we’ll say use a template and what about this we use a template. Here we have all
of the pre-loaded templates in Pebblepad and all the templates that you
have created. As you can see I have a lot as I’ve uh been working with Pebblepad now
for for almost a year. But let’s click a random Pebblepad template, and this is
something that you can put on your blog. Uh you save the record as as something
that’s convenient. Describe this achievement we support the evidence this
means that you can you provide some textual evidence uh, reflection here’s a
here’s a skill I learned I did community service doing a uh working with the animal
shelter. You could type all that in and now a place for evidence you can uh have
more place for for writing but also adding assets. Now you can add images,
videos, things that uh that can back up what your what you’re saying what you’re
describing. And then here’s a place where you can reflect on it. So just a random
template but something that you could use uh just you save that but as I said not
very common. Of course that’s how it it shows up in your blog role so to speak
you know appear chronologically so here’s post
one, here’s post two, you’ll see post three and four as you continue uh to go
along. But just showing you what options you have. You can also add existing assets uh. Here’s me out doing post two uh is
something I’ve already created but I want to incorporate it into this
particular blog role, so I select it and there’s post two or whatever else that I
titled maybe this is my uh this is my reflection on my English class or my
reflection of my Spanish class uh. But that’s a way that you can create a blog
in Pebblepad. Uh this can be put into the portfolio when you add a new page, uh you
can add an existing adding add an existing asset, you can drag in this blog
that you’re creating so you can use it on multiple portfolios. And then the same
function applies when you have you’re given that template and given a set of
reflections to complete uh with a blog function. You’ll uh you’ll simply you’ll
make all the same steps but it’ll be turned in to your instructor.
