One effective way to engage and motivate students is by helping them document their learning. Digital portfolios is the best way to do this. We have already reviewed several web tools and mobile apps students can use to showcase their learning (click here to see them). In today’s post we are adding another excellent platform called FreshGrade that enables teachers and students to easily capture learning using a wide variety of rich media artifacts.
FreshGrade allows students to document their learning through pictures, videos, audio recording, links and text notes. As a teacher, you can record artifacts of learning and upload them directly to students portfolios to share with parents. ‘Using the FreshGrade Parent App and FreshGrade Student App, students and parents have secure access to view, comment and upload additional artifacts to the student’s portfolio. The FreshGrade suite of applications features student portfolios, parent engagement, custom assessment tools, custom activities/assignments with curriculum alignment and classroom announcements.’
