Most research on digital teaching portfolios has focused on teacher candidates' professional development.
For example, several researchers (Barrett, 1999, 2000; Kilbane & Milman, 2003, 2005; Mc Kinney, 1998; Milman, 1999, 2000) contend that the creation of digital teaching portfolios fosters teacher candidates' confidence in their abilities as educators and in their use and application of technology.
Les conclusions suggèrent que les processus concernés par la création de portfolios d’enseignement numérique ont favorisé un réel perfectionnement professionnel et qu’ils constituent un élément déclencheur pour leur perfectionnement professionnel continu.
