"Mahara is an open source e-portfolio system with a flexible display framework. Mahara, meaning ''think'' or ''thought'' in Te Reo Māori, is user centred environment with a permissions framework that enables different views of an e-portfolio to be easily managed. Mahara also features a weblog, resume builder and social networking system, connecting users and creating online learner communities." (mahara.org)
Over the past number of years I have kept this installation to continue the practises developed in 2008 at ACS Abu Dhabi where we followed the Charlotte Danielson framework. Excluding one year when I moved from Surpass to Bluehost hosting I have continued the process of using Mahara for my porfolio. This school year we are "offcially" required to create and maintain a personal professional development plan. My goal, as in the past, is to collect artifacts and reflect on my personal professional growth journey using a blog and Mahara.
