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 activity stream, and can only be seen by yourself and other invited teachers.
