Resources provide educators with support to use digital portfolios

April 16, 2019 | bulb Digital Portfolios

bulb Digital Portfolios released the bulbLibrary, a resource hub purpose-built for educators to help modernize learning for students. The bulbLibrary gives educators easy access to resources, equipping them to integrate the use of a digital portfolio in their classrooms and for professional development. Educators can find model portfolios, sample collections and pages, as well as templated content for customization.

“The release of the bulbLibrary is another example of how bulb helps educators transform learning for the future. bulb is by design a simple and powerful tool where anyone can create and refine ideas, and publish a beautiful collection of work. The bulbLibrary will serve as an inspiration and resource center to help anyone get started,” said Erik Petrik, chief creative officer at bulb Digital Portfolios.

This ever-expanding cache of resources gives educators real use cases of how digital portfolios modernize learning for students and adults. The release of the bulbLibrary provides educators with timely resources for documenting their professional development during the summer.

A number of educators have submitted their portfolios to the library to share publicly with others, including Belinda Medellin. A template around professional learning will help teachers with goal setting and plans for their summertime professional development. The bulbLibrary also features a number of instructional templates teachers can easily use with students, including a writing prompt template to help students to improve writing.

The bulbLibrary will be updated frequently. In celebration of Teacher Appreciation Week, a collection of responses to the question “What’s your why?” will be published. Educators can contribute to this resource by sharing their thoughts in the survey.
