An educational technology portfolio was completed as a creative component project to meet the requirement for the Educational Technology Masters program in the School of Education at Iowa State University. Artifacts included in this portfolio were aligned to the program’s standards of: 1) Technology Planning and Integration, 2) Digital Citizenship, 3) Research and Assessment, and 4) Visionary Leadership. To meet standard 1 a lesson plan using the app Flipgrid was submitted to show how the understanding of the TPACK Model guided technology planning and integration in a first grade classroom. The artifact aligned with Standard 2 was a Twitter Chat Project on transformative use from a prior class. This Twitter Chat asked teachers to participate in a discussion guided by pre-determined questions on what transformative use is and how it is implemented in the classroom. Standard 3 was met through an action research paper on technology integration in K-2 classrooms in a large suburban district. The artifact aligned to Standard 4 was a Padlet Wall used for the teaching of a technology professional development course in a suburban district. These artifacts are composed in a website with authentic reflections to show overall growth.
