Paper portfolios have been a staple in the classroom for many years, providing insight into self-reflection and personal growth. With the technology that today’s K-12 students are growing up with, electronic portfolios become a natural extension with added benefits. Paper portfolios are static, only produce one copy of collected content, and create a storage issue. Digital portfolios contain hyperlinks to embedded content, can be easily modified and shared with multiple viewers.
Finding a tool online that is easy to navigate, available on any platform and has NO COST can be a challenge. That is, until Seesaw, the learning journal app/site, came along.
