TeacherCast App Spotlight: Portfoliyo (@portfoliyo)

By   /   December 20, 2012  /   No Comments

Jeff sits down with educator and app developer Harsh Patel to discuss how his free parent communication tool Portfoliyo is being used to keep parents inside the educational conversation.

About Portfoliyo

Teachers face pressure to “Increase Family Involvement”, do more “Project Based Learning”, make “Data Driven Decisions”,  “Differentiate” for students, and “Integrate Technology” in their classroom every single day. However, they are not given tools through which they can achieve all of the above. Portfoliyo was created to finally build these tools for teachers. We are laser focused on creating the best technology tools for teachers, parents, and students – the first of which you can find at www.portfoliyo.org to increase family involvement.
