Slide 2

2 Mission & Vision for your Portfolio

Slide 3

3 Difference between Mission and Vision Statements Your vision statement should show you your ultimate destination, while the mission statement describes how you plan to get you there. A vision statement is a description of a desired outcome that helps you create a mental picture of your professional target.

Slide 4

4 A Personal Vision Statement: Vision Statement Guidelines Your vision should encompass the same time period of your mission. This is usually a period related to professional licensure. Your vision statement should focus on the desired outcome for you in your profession. Summarize Your Vision in a Powerful Phrase Capturing the essence of your vision using a simple memorable phrase can greatly enhance the effectiveness of your vision statement. This opening phrase should serve as a trigger to the rest of the vision in the mind of those who read it. You may find that creating your vision statement first and then creating that memorable phrase is easier than doing it the reverse.

Slide 5

5 A Personal Vision Statement: Your Vision Statement Should Describe Your Outcome Your vision statements can be longer than your mission statement. Your vision should be energizing and help you to accomplish your goals. In general, you should base your vision statements on the best possible outcome. It is not a measuring stick. Describe your vision statement in present tense as if you have been 100% successful. Your vision statement should include that passion and emotion that brought you to this profession.

Slide 6

6 A Personal Mission Statement: This is what you want to focus on, accomplish and become as a professional in the next five or six years. The amount of time is loosely based on your profession and its licensure requirements. Mission Statement Guidelines  Keep it simple, clear and brief. Your mission statement should be what you want to focus on in this part of your life. Your mission statement should be positive. What you choose to do, not what you do not want to do. A mission statement should contain the passion that brought you to this profession and guide you in your daily work. Remember that your mission statement is not cast in stone. It will continue to change and evolve as you gain insights about yourself and your profession.

CEDo555 Assessment 3.1 Your Portfolio Project Proposal… John Sklar - Instructor

Slide 8

8 Portfolios are ubiquitous… When this course started there were few people doing online portfolios, today it is old hat. The Googlios project is a perfect example: http://sites.google.com/site/googlioproject/ You should start thinking about how you would use portfolios with your students/clients. In a work setting. The product that you will hand in for this assignment is a proposal as to how you would do this.

Slide 9

9 Assessment 3.1 Portfolio Project Proposal The student submits a Proposal containing all required information. The instructor of CEd0555 will grade this proposal based on the completion of each part. Please see the rubric on Angel.

Slide 10

10 The Portfolio Project Proposal describes A proposed project in detail and consists of several distinct sections.

Slide 11

11 1. The overall goal of the proposed project This project should extend your knowledge of portfolios beyond this course and into your real world. What is there in Web 2.0 that you can extend your knowledge to? What Web 2.0 tools might be useful

Slide 12

12 2. Specific S.M.A.R.T. objectives (at least three) S - specific, significant, stretching M - measurable, meaningful, motivational A - agreed upon, attainable, achievable, acceptable, action-oriented R - realistic, relevant, reasonable, rewarding, results-oriented T - time-based, timely, tangible, trackable Thanks to: http://www.projectsmart.co.uk/smart-goals.html

Slide 13

13 Many people use the SMART acronym to explain goal setting. I like this set from Annette Richmond at www.career-intelligence.com. In her case, S.M.A.R.T. refers to goals that are Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic and Time Framed.

Slide 14

In reality, a goal that does not have SMART characteristics is more a wish, or hope than a real objective. Hoping that people will learn is a common problem with new teacher’s lesson plans.

Slide 15

15 Specific: Goals need to be something specific. Often we set goals that are so loose, it's nearly impossible to judge whether we hit them or not. For example, a statement like "I will lose weight" is too vague. How will you know if and when you've reached your goal? Saying, " I will lose five pounds this month" is more specific. At the end of the month it will be a simple matter of weights and measures: take your measurements and get on the scale.

Slide 16

16 Measurable: Goals need to be measurable. For example, many of us want to increase our number of contacts. But, "making new contacts" is an ambiguous statement. A clearer objective is "I will attend four networking events each month and try to connect with one person at each." It's a simple, concrete goal. This makes it easy to see if you hit your target.

Slide 17

17 Achievable: Goals need to be reasonable and achievable. Nearly everyone has tried to drop a few pounds at one time or another. Often their success or failure depends on setting practical goals. Losing 15 pounds in 30 days is unrealistic (unless you're planning a medical procedure). Losing six to eight pounds in 30 days is reasonable. Don't set yourself up for failure by setting goals that are out of reach.

Slide 18

18 Realistic: Goals need to be realistic. When we're kids we think we can do anything. As adults we learn that while we can have a lot, we can't have it all at the same time. It's important to honestly evaluate yourself. Do you have the ability and commitment to make your dream come true? Or does it need a little adjustment? For example, you may love to play tennis, but do you have the time, talent and commitment to become a pro? Be honest.

Slide 19

19 Time Framed: Goals need to have a time frame. Having a set amount of time will give your goals structure. For example, many of us want to find a new job or start their own business. Some people spend a lot of time talking about what they want to do, someday. But, without an end date there is no sense of urgency, no reason to take any action today. Having a specific time frame gives you the impetus to get started. It also helps you monitor your progress.

Slide 20

A Goal That is NOT Smart… S – not specific, i.e. vague and amorphous M – unMeasurable, can’t be quantified/counted A – not agreed upon, attainable or achievable R - unRealistic, iRrelevant or unReasonable T – not Time base, may or may not happen in this time continuum. 20

Slide 21

Any good objective should have all 5, otherwise it is vague - not Specific amorphous - not Measurable beyond read - not Attainable theoretical / impractical - not Realistic without an endpoint - not Time bound. 21

Slide 22

22 3. Describes how the completed project will be used by the candidate and/or others. What is it that you or other people will do with this project? If no one changes what they do or how they do it then do they change their attitudes and knowledge base?

Slide 23

23 4. Describes how the candidate and/or others will benefit from the project: List what you expect to be positive outcomes of your project. These may be specific learning or changes in attitude, perception etc. Your project may increase your or other’s skills in a particular area. There may be a combination of benefits.

Slide 24

24 Describes how the project or project outcomes will be shared/disseminated Provides a complete list of resources that will be needed provides a rubric for evaluating the success of the project, i.e., by what criteria may the project by judged as successful You create the rubric and the criteria. This section should include a proposed rubric that you may decide to change later. Your rubric will be specific to your project…

Slide 25

25 Outlines a proposed timeline for project completion (estimate the steps to the project in days and hours)

Slide 26

26 Outlines a proposed timeline for project completion (estimate the steps to the project in days and hours) You must actually create and include a timeline in some form so that I can see the sequence of steps you would be taking.

Slide 27

27 To touch base with your instructor before you actually begin, to be sure you are in the right direction, email will do. Be sure
