Simple Student Portfolios & Career Education Resources

My Blueprint is currently in use in both middle schools as well as NPSS.  We would like to expand the program to grades 5-6 starting this September 2018.  The program  is versatile and continues to be expanded for multiple curriculum uses beyond career and portfolios.  

Benefits of using My Blueprint Include:

  • Provides cross-curricular lesson plans based on BC curriculum
  • Storage of portfolios for students with parent/teacher access
  • Portfolios are archived within the program so they are available in future years
  • Housing of illustrations of the core competencies including digital mediums
  • Many curricular connections in grades 5 & 6 have been developed and fully outlined for teachers
  • User friendly
