Have you or your students ever considered creating digital portfolios on the go? Well now with the new mobile technology everything is possbile. There are a variety of apps that can help you create and organize portfolios and sketchbooks and some don't cost you even a penny. Apps in Education has compiled an awesome list of such apps though they are not 100%  perfect but they can help you alot. I have picked out the free apps and reviewed them down .


1- Evernote

Evernote is quite popular and probably many of you are already familiar with it. This app lets you take notes, create to do lists, record voice reminders, capture photos and many more.What is even cooler is that it syncs all of your information across all the devices you use.



2- Paper

  2. I'd recommend Wikispaces too. Students could have their own pages in a class wiki or their own wiki.

    Sample

  3. You might like to check out the Teacher's Wire app. It allows you to take photos of student work that is attached to an outcome/objective and easily email it to parents.

  4. My students are piloting student blogging as part of their digital portfolios this year and we are using Weebly. Weebly has a great iPad app that makes it super easy for my second graders to add video, pictures, and text to their blogs. We love it!
