A Digital Profile is the new CV

This blog has been created to serve as my online portfolio. I hope though that it proves to be more than self promotion.

My idea is to showcase the importance and power of a digital profile. I aim to model proactive digital citizenship for students at Mt Alvernia College. I also hope to encourage colleagues to showcase their digital profiles in the spirit of professional sharing and dialogue. Furthermore, there is growing demand for teachers to provide evidence of their professional practice.  I also believe a digital profile is a great way for teachers to record the contribution they make to their schools, students and professional communities.

It is no secret that businesses now check out a prospective employee’s digital footprint as part of the job selection process. The applicant who has a profile and network on LinkedIn, a professional Twitter account and blog and specialist curation on other social media platforms such as ScoopIt, Pinterest or Diigo, will put themselves in a good position when the boss “Googles” them.
