How Can Teachers Use It?

WeLearnedIt will work best in classrooms where personal feedback is possible for every student and every student has an iPad. In those project-based 1-to-1 learning environments, teachers can use this revolutionary tool to make assignments, monitor and assess student work, and leave feedback. All work is archived so teachers can re-create past assignments. Students' portfolios follow them so they have a true digital learning showcase.

What's It Like?

With this social-learning platform created by the makers of eduClipper, teachers can create project-based assignments complete with rubrics and attachments that can be pulled from DropBox, Google Drive, the device's camera or camera roll, or the Internet. Content saved on teachers' eduClipper accounts is automatically accessible in the library, as are resources other teachers have publicly shared. Students can submit projects dynamically through the app -- attaching images, videos, documents, and more -- and get feedback from peers and teachers delivered by video, audio, or text. Teachers can create unlimited classes, attaching different assignments and students to each. Students join a class with a teacher-generated code, and their work is saved in digital portfolios. With paid versions, parents also get a portal to view student assignments.

Is It Good For Learning?

Authentic, project-based learning is powerful but can be hard to manage, difficult to assess. WeLearnedIt brings all components together into a controlled chaos that students, teachers, and parents can all participate in. Teachers can create clear expectations for projects -- explaining assignments, offering resources or models, and building rubrics. Students can collaborate with one another, giving and receiving feedback from peers and getting feedback from teachers in a variety of formats -- video, audio, and text -- as they create a portfolio of their work over time.
