(Lafayette, CO) July 19, 2021 – bulb Digital Portfolios is the newest partner of Gradelink. Both companies share the same belief: essential EdTech systems should be simple to use and pumped with value. The two companies believe that EdTech tools should help educators and administrators save time in the planning and orchestrating to have more time for student and parent engagement.
This partnership will allow teachers, students and families using Gradelink student information systems (SIS) to have access to a bulb Digital Portfolio.
All schools need a way to manage student records, reports, communication, admissions and billing. Gradelink Student Information System (SIS) is designed with private K-12 education in mind: its easy to use; its budget-friendly; it includes a dedicated tech support rep for each school; it includes private-school-specific features like tuition collection, chapel attendance and more. Gradelink has served nearly 2,000 schools worldwide.
bulb is a web-based tool where students collect digital evidence of their learning (images, videos, documents, audio, embeds) and showcase their work beautifully and professionally. Students use a bulb digital portfolio to create, collect and showcase their latest ideas and best work when applying for college or a job. Teachers can use bulb to keep lessons, track professional development goals and showcase credentials or badges earned. bulb Digital Portfolios are also implemented by schools and districts to advance learning and program goals.
“We’re excited about partnering with Gradelink to help students show off what they know, demonstrate skills and interests to get into college or to land a job,” said Andrew Cary, Senior Vice President of Strategy and Partnerships at bulb. “Adding a digital portfolio to a student’s school experience allows them to practice positive digital citizenship skills while creating a powerful collection of their work.”
Schools and districts using Gradelink have special access to a bulb Digital Portfolio, professional development, implementation support and training for teachers.
