Créer son portfolio avec un blog 25 avr J’explique régulièrement à mes étudiants les enjeux du portfolio pour leur carrière professionnelle. Dans la mesure où j’enseigne en BTS et en DSAA, il me semble fondamental que mes élèves s’interrogent à la fois sur les savoirs acquis et sur les compétences mobilisées. Travailler sur le portfolio me semble avoir plusieurs avantages : Se poser en premier, la question suivante, comment définir la métier que je me propose d’exercer, quel est-il ? Il faut que vous intégriez l’idée que la vie professionnelle est un agrégat de savoirs acquis, que la professionnalité s’exerce en combinant des savoirs et des compétences multiples. Il est nécessaire de dispenser en cours des élements théoriques sur le portfolio et il est aussi nécessaire de travailler sur les fonctionnalités des outils.

Society6 | Affordable Art Prints, iPhone Cases and T-shirts I Noticed This Tiny Thing On Google Maps. When I Zoomed In… Well, Nothing Could Prepare Me. Go ahead and search for the coordinates 16°51’53″N, 11°57’13″E on google maps or google earth, and take a look at what you see. At first glance it may just appear to be a barren and empty desert. But zoom in further and you’ll find that there’s something more to see. When close enough, at that spot, there’s a surprising and amazing image that looks like an icon of a silhouetted plane. And there’s a very specific reason for the plane symbol being in that otherwise empty desert. Read on for the full and very touching story. In September of 1989, UTA flight 772 was scheduled to operate between Brazzaville in the Republic of Congo and Paris CDG airport in France via N’Djamena in Chad. A bomb exploded in the luggage area, causing the flight to break up over the Sahara Desert. The plane wreckage was strewn over miles and miles of desert, about 400 miles away from the nearest town. The site is so remote that some of the pieces still remain there today.

Livre blanc "la démarche ePortfolio dans l'enseignement supérieur français" Les dispositifs ePortfolio Les dispositifs ePortfolio visent à rassembler, dans un environnement numérique, un ensemble de documents et de ressources électroniques qui décrit et illustre l'apprentissage ou la carrière d'une personne, ses expériences, ses travaux et ses compétences. Ils intéressent très directement l'enseignement supérieur pour la formation initiale et tout au long de la vie (formalisation des parcours et des référentiels, nouvelles modalités d'acquisition et de repérage des compétences, ...) et pour l'insertion professionnelle (valorisation des acquis et expériences). En France, il fait pour le moment l'objet d'expériences ponctuelles, de plus ou moins grande ampleur. Ces expériences posent la question de l'inscription de la démarche ePortfolio dans des politiques d'établissement voire interuniversitaires et celle du passage à des publics plus larges.

20 Best Color Palette Generators and Galleries for Designers (2019) Everyone loves colors. Colors are among the most important elements of every design and artwork. As designers, we work with colors every day. However, it’s not an easy task to find the best fitting color palette for a website, application, or other product. Color theory is such a serious thing that even Goethe wrote a book on the subject. If you want to find the perfect color scheme there are a lot of rules and guidelines to follow. You can use either galleries or generators to quickly create a fitting color scheme for your design. Color palette galleries are collections created by either human designers or algorithms. Color palette generators allow you to manually design a palette. On the web, you’ll also find color palette apps that provide both functions. 1. COLOURlovers is the biggest online community related to colors, with more than 8 million members. 2. With Adobe’s color wheel, you can create analogous, monochromatic, triadic, complementary, and compound color palettes. 3. 4. 5.

Out of the other sheet of painted paper, cut out 3 (or more) bow-shapes. There you have it!
