The purpose of this study was to examine the effectiveness of making digital portfolio as a learning activity of Contents B: "Information and Computer" in Technology Education. Thirty-eight first-year junior high school students made their own digital portfolios that reported their activities (wood working activities in Contents A: "Technology and Manufacturing") using HTML.
The results of the implementation were as follows: (1) Making digital portfolios promoted students' self-awareness of skill-acquisitions, troubleshooting and project managements in technological activities. (2) Students' abilities of "judgment of information," "creation of information" and "ethics of information" were developed in the processes of making digital portfolios. (3) Students' self-monitoring of technological activities in the process of making digital portfolios promoted students to make other digital portfolios concomitantly.
These results suggested that this activity was effective for not only developing the ability to utilize information but also creating a connection curriculum between Contents B and A in the Technology Education Curriculum.
