Lafayette, Colorado – (May 12, 2020) — bulb Digital Portfolios’ new parent account feature gives parents and guardians the ability to view and engage with their children’s learning at any time, from anywhere.
Parents can now see what their children are learning, and how they’re doing in and out of the classroom, every day. The new parent account features give parents the ability to interact, leave feedback through inline commenting, and stay up-to-date with their child’s digital portfolio activities with a real-time feed.
Not only will parents have access to their child’s portfolio for life, but they’ll also be able to add to and view all of their assignments, accomplishments, projects, and more in one place.
With parent accounts, parents and guardians can have an active role in their child’s success. They’ll gain meaningful insights into—not just their child’s strengths and weaknesses—but their hidden talents and individuality. Parents that support their children through digital portfolios are supporting their growth, preparing them for success, and putting their child’s best foot forward.
