We are very pleased to connect you to our new online student digital portfolios. every parent has received a qr code that will allow them access to their child's work.
Teachers and students can upload to their own private profiles. Students can “show what they know” using photos, videos, drawings, text, PDFs, and links. You can also import directly from most popular apps, like Google apps.
This means busy Mum's Dad's Granny's Granddad's and other family members can connect and see what we have been up to. You can add from home too so if you want to show us how good you are getting at something click in and upload.
Download the app to find out more and check the homework folder for the QR code to log into your child's profile.
We are loving using this app and hope you enjoy it as much as we are.
