Digital portfolios enable students across Michigan to showcase developmental goals and advance STEM initiatives
(Ann Arbor, Mich.) October 30, 2019 – bulb Digital Portfolios announces a partnership with Washtenaw Intermediate School District (WISD) to provide all students in Michigan with access to a digital portfolio.
A bulb digital portfolio is used by students 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 to showcase credentials or badges earned. bulb digital portfolios are also implemented by schools and districts to advance STEM initiatives and meet the requirements of Career and Technical Education programs.
“Washtenaw ISD looks forward to launching this partnership with bulb Digital Portfolios so students across Michigan can access cutting-edge educational opportunities,” said WISD Superintendent Scott Menzel. “Digital portfolios allow students to highlight their lifelong learning and accomplishments, as well as align with broader education and workforce goals we have in Michigan. Partnerships like this help ensure teachers and students have the tools they need to be successful both today and in the future.”
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.
“We’re excited about working with Washtenaw ISD 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 have access to special pricing, professional development, implementation support and training for teachers when purchasing bulb Digital Portfolios through Washtenaw ISD. Anyone interested can get information here.
