2010-09-30 Developing an ITech Portfolio 
 
The ITech Portfolio is a collection of information about all the technical and vocational subjects. It is an ONGOING term project; bits of information will be added as the term progresses. By creating a portfolio, students will learn how to sort and file information for future use. It will encourage creativity and develop research skills. 
 
Students are reminded to be economical. RECYCLE materials found at home (cornflakes boxes, wood shavings, etc.) and purchase a reasonably CHEAP folder.
