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. An instructional design project created to introduce senior citizens to the basics of using and navigating social media fulfills standard 1, technology planning and integration. A discussion of evolving views on the use of digital surveillance in schools and how those views translated into influence on school policy constitute the artifacts for standard 2. An action research project on how instructional coaches can deliver effective feedback to teacher serves as evidence for standard 3. A reflection on growth as a leader over time, including presentations at various educational technology conferences, makes up the artifacts for standard 4.
