Are you looking to bring Digital Portfolios into your classroom this year? This year at ISTE I had the opportunity to meet and get to know a great company called bulb. They offer students a fantastic platform to create digital portfolios that not only act as a “place for their stuff,” but could actually be a fantastic platform to teach students about blogging, podcasting, and content creation.
This week, bulb announced that they are treating teachers to a fantastic Back To School treat! Starting this week, bulb will be offering free accounts for all teachers to try out their robust platform.
According to their recent press release…
With a free bulb+ account, teachers can:
- Create personal collections, curriculum and resources.
- Track professional development and display badges and credentials earned.
- Establish professional learning plans to meet goals and standards.
“A great education starts with great teachers. And, amazing teachers want to have their work with them no matter where they teach to model best practices for students. We support teachers in all aspects – from the classroom to the work done to meet personal or professional development goals,” said Eric Goldreyer, chief executive officer at bulb Digital Portfolios.
A bulb+ account (valued at $30/year) helps teachers incorporate best practices and demonstrate 21st Century skills for students. Teachers now have the opportunity to use digital portfolios as a way to transform and impact their current district or school’s digital portfolio program. Leading school districts across the country are using bulbEd, an enterprise solution for schools and districts, to prepare and meet the demands of the digital era.
bulb also announces that free “bulb” accounts will have more features, including:
- Use and create templates.
- Embed audio and rich media files.
- Gather comments and feedback.
- Showcase work in presentation mode.
Students can create a free bulb account to capture ideas, express knowledge and display your skills get the most out of college, career, and life. Or they can purchase a bulb+ account for $3/month.
bulb is a safe, secure and ad-free tool. User data is never mined. Anyone can sign-up for an account at bulbapp.com.
