How I Use It
I use this as an ePortfolio with my younger students. I have been working very closely with one of my first grade teachers to implement this into her everyday classroom. It has been a wonderful tool that showcases their growth throughout the year while also sharing their work with their parents.
My Take
I really enjoy the ease of use. Yes the setup took some time as you have to type in each student's name, but it isn't that bad. Once that is done you are up and running. I love that students can narrate and annotate over their portfolio pieces. I also love that this allows students to reflect on their work.
