Student Portfolio Apps and Websites

Portfolios are a time-tested and teacher-trusted method for assessing student learning. But what happens when students ditch notebooks and folders for laptops and tablets? These tech tools are here to help, offering students virtual binders, folders, web pages, and galleries for collecting everything from text to video. They also give teachers the ability to easily browse through their students' work and assess remotely.
