How I Use It
In my class students use Bulb as a "living" portfolio that captures the progress of their writing throughout the school year. In addition to this, students use bulb to document their campus-wide PBL projects. Student agency has increased since using bulb because students are aware this portfolio will be used alongside their resume to impress industry partners as they compete for internships their junior/senior year. As a veteran teacher who always sought a "digital platform" that could capture a student's growth and display their progress through out the year- this product is my dream come true!
My Take
It works well with Google Suite and the support team with bulb is always quick to respond with a smile. I liked that you can form different collections and then specific pages within a collection, its like having a digital binder. A tool that can help students stay organized is a blessing in itself. My intention this year is to use the product more explicitly as a digital journal for the year with an increased need for distance learning activities. I'm also encouraging students to embed more videos and audios to keep their viewers engaged. This tool has allowed my students and I the ability to grow with our use of technology in the classroom.
