4 Free Web Tools for Student Portfolios
I still have every single project I ever completed in preschool. My dad collected them and kept each one in a grocery bag that he tucked away in the back of his closet. Looking through his collection now, there's nothing incredibly prodigious about the work that I created as a four-year-old boy. I see doodles, collages, coloring pages and awkward attempts at writing my own name. Nevertheless, the story that it tells is special to me. This is the effect of good portfolios. Kidblog Kidblog is unique among the web tools featured here because it is built by teachers for teachers. Google Sites If your school is fueled by Google Apps for Education, then using Google Sites to create student portfolios, or "Googlios," makes perfect sense. Evernote For classrooms with BYOD or 1:1 initiatives in place, Evernote can serve as a viable option for creating student portfolios. Three Ring A mobile app with a desktop version, Three Ring is worthy of consideration as well.
