Curating your digital portfolio

I’ve just read a post at gettingsmart.com, Encourage writing with a Domain, Blog & Portfolio, about a very interesting initiative at the University of Mary Washington in Fredericksburg, Virginia. “They provide the faculty and 5,000 students with a domain to, “Explore the creation and development of their digital identities.” The Domain of One’s Own initiative facilitates WordPress installation, provides technical support, and hosts the site until graduation–and then the domain and content remains the student’s. Students write about anthropology, the Internet, 3d printing and GIS mapping”.

I do not Know if this kind of initiatives are being hold at educational centres in Spain but I find it a very useful activity for it will serve the students for the rest of their profesionnal career.
