Prior to beginning work on this assignment,
Lino (2016) argued “teachers need to know the developmental characteristics of children in order to select appropriate materials. . . to address children’s needs, interests and rights, and create provocative learning environments that challenge the children and promote their learning and development” (p. 9). Furthermore, the author emphasizes the importance of understanding the interrelatedness of domains of development. In addition, Akkoyunlu, Menzi Çetin, and Dağhan (2016) promoted the importance of pre-service teachers engaging in reflective thinking experiences to help transfer knowledge gained to the learning environment. Consequently, this final presentation provides you the opportunity to reflect on your learning throughout this course, demonstrate your mastery of professional competencies, analyze how domains of development are interrelated, and discuss how this knowledge will serve you in achieving your professional goals.
Throughout your degree, you have been building a personal electronic portfolio, or ePortfolio. Your ePortfolio will serve as a tool for you to track your professional and academic progress. In the capstone or last class, you will use your ePortfolio to reflect on your development across the program. Once you graduate, it can also be used to demonstrate your skills and competencies to potential employers and the professional community.
This assignment helps you add content to Portfolium, the ePortfolio tool being used by this university. As an Ashford student, you not only will have access to Portfolium during your time at Ashford, but you will retain lifetime unlimited access after leaving the university without fees or capacity limit. You can access your account by selecting “Portfolium” in the left navigation menu in your Canvas classroom, or by using the following link: Ashford University Portfolium (Links to an external site.). In ECE101, you should have already set up your account. If this has not been done, please start at Step 1: Getting Started in Portfolium.

Part 2: After identifying the artifact and accompanying standard, prepare for your PowerPoint presentation by drafting a detailed explanation of each artifact’s significance by providing evidence of meeting that competency. These explanations should not just provide a description of the artifact, but should address the following: why the artifact was chosen, how it relates to the competency, what you learned from the experience, how the artifact demonstrates the interrelatedness of development domains, and how you might use the knowledge gained in your current or future practice.
Part 3: Once you have finished your drafting exercise, create a PowerPoint presentation based on the planning steps above. Your presentation must address all of the following prompts in the table:
