Get Started with bulb Digital Portfolios this Year

January 31, 2017

Finding the best way to showcase and celebrate student work can be a challenge. Digital portfolios gives students the power to curate, create, share and showcase their work. Last week I had the chance to spend time with the awesome team at bulb during the FETC conference in Orlando, Florida. Not only was it so much fun to share bulb with teachers on the ground during this event, I had the opportunity to speak one-on-one with members of the bulb team.

The folks at bulb are passionate about giving students and teachers a space to highlight their accomplishments. This can happen over the course of the school year. The bulb digital portfolio tool makes it easy for students to handpick their best pieces of work from the school year and create pages and collections that show off their work. Students who are using Google Classroom or creating movies or interactive presentations with other tools can bring all of their work together in bulb.

Digital Portfolios

Why are digital portfolios important?

Students who understand the purpose of their learning are engaged and ready to dive in. Whether your students are ready to show off their work as part of an application to high school or college, or they simply want to bring together their work from the school year all in one place, digital portfolios accomplish both of these goals. By curating their work, students can reflect on their accomplishments and see their progress over one or multiple school years.

Showcase Student Work

How can bulb showcase student work?

Digital portfolios make it easy for students to share their work and receive peer and teacher feedback. It also provides an online space to connect with authentic audiences. Students can showcase their work by sharing the links to their creations. They can share it with classmates, family and friends, or to wider audiences outside of their classroom. Students who create digital portfolios on bulb have a shareable link to their work. Schools can showcase their creations on district social media pages or send their creations out for the world to see!

    Thank you, Monica, for sharing information about bulb. As many project presentations move into utilizing digital tools, it is great there is a place they can be preserved and shared with others outside the classroom. As I read more about bulb through the website I realize this tool has many useful facets. I look forward to using it with my students.
