Google Sites allows you to create your own dynamic digital workspace wherein you can collect your application documents and work samples, reflect on your learning, share it, seek feedback and showcase your soft skills and achievements. Google Sites works just like a website, that will represent your ePortfolio you need for your application – be it a job, an apprenticeship programme or an internship. Your Google site can consist of one page (homepage) or of several pages. For this exercise we start with creating just one page as a trial.
Decide for which purpose you would like to create your trial Google site, for example have a sample of a job description at hand.
Choose content you think that fits the job description and that reflects your soft skills best.
These can be:
Store it in the same folder on Google Drive. Give this folder a recognizable name such as “Portfolio_M. Mueller” and make it a shareable folder by giving viewing access by selecting "On - Anyone with the link can view". This makes anything you put in the folder viewable by your instructor or peers when you add parts to the ePortfolio. This action does not make folder content searchable in Google.
On your Google site you will create an extra section to showcase your soft skills. Think about which soft skills you would like to emphasize and how you would like present those, for example with pictures, storytelling, giving examples.
Create your ePortfolio with Google Sites following the video guide <insert Google sites tutorial of Youtube in national language>. Dedicate one section or sub-page to your soft skills.
