How I Use It
We're beginning to use this app to allow our students to select their favorite pictures, projects, videos and more and save them into their own portfolio. Parents can be given access to view their own child's work. This provides an excellent collection of work that can be shared throughout the school year. It allows for student narration, annotation, and more. Great product!!
My Take
This is a fantastic tool! The QR code makes it very easy for students to enter their own work into their own folder. However, it can be easy for kids to accidentally import their work into the wrong child's folder. It could be improved by some equally easy, but more private, sign in steps.
