Teachers can create a portfolio story from scratch, or duplicate a relevant child story to edit and save to their portfolio. Learn more about teacher portfolios here.
Creating a portfolio story from scratch
You can create a portfolio story in the same way you create a child story. If you don't know how to create a child story you can follow these instructions. But in the drop-down selector, instead of selecting children to add to the story, you select 'My portfolio' and then yourself.
Duplicating a child story to save to your portfolio
Follow these instructions to learn how to duplicate a story. Once you've duplicated a story, it will be saved to your drafts and you are free to edit any aspect of it before publishing it like any other story.
Publishing a portfolio story
When you publish a portfolio story it will be saved to your personal portfolio and by default can only be seen by you. If you'd like other contributors to see it you can go to your portfolio stories page, click the arrow in the top right of the story preview card and select all or individual contributors you'd like to make it visible to. Now when one of those educators visits your portfolio stories page, they'll see this story.
