Overview of Portfolios
Freshgrade Digital Portfolios offer parents a window into the classroom. You have many different options when using Portfolios.
- Use them the same way you would use a traditional paper portfolio to highlight specific learning outcomes and showcase student work.
- Use both the Portfolio and Gradebook to allow parents and students to see marks attached to learning evidence in the form of photos, videos, digital documents, or audio recordings.
- Encourage communication with parents by inviting them to view and comment on their student's portfolio.
- Encourage student reflection and goal setting through the use of comments on the portfolio.
Interacting with Portfolios is different depending on the platform you choose. See below for specific details for each the Webapp, iPad app, and Mobile or Smart Phone app (iOS or Android).
