Back in August Adam Bellow launched a new iPad app called WeLearnedIt. Through the WeLearnedIt iPad app you and your students can create digital portfolios. This week a collaborative portfolio creation option was added to WeLearnedIt. WeLearnedIt portfolios can contain files from Google Drive, Dropbox, links from the web, images and videos captured with your iPad, and whiteboard videos created within the WeLearnedIt app. Watch the video below to see how the new portfolio option works.
The best aspects of WeLearnedIt are found in the feedback and sharing tools. Teachers can assign grades to elements of students’ digital portfolios. Grading is not limited to assigning scores. Teachers can give written feedback on each submission. Rubrics for assignments are available through the app too. School-wide implementations (a fee-based option) of WeLearnedIt allow teachers and administrators to share assessment data.
Disclosure: I have a small advisory and equity interest in eduClipper (the parent company of WeLearnedIt).
