The National Council for the Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE) suggests that teacher education institutions require portfolios as a method for demonstrating that their preservice teachers have mastered NCATE standards including those technology standards recognized by the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE). At the same time, school districts are requiring their teachers to demonstrate how their K-12 students have mastered the academic standards of that school district. This paper presents an electronic portfolio template that blends these standards, providing the opportunity to demonstrate how one artifact, in this case, a thematic lesson, acts as a performance indicator of mastery for each of these standards.
