(BEDFORD, MA) December, 12, 2019 – bulb Digital Portfolios announced a partnership with EDCO Collaborative to provide students across Massachusetts with a digital portfolio to support the development of skills for the future.
The partnership supports a number of statewide initiatives ranging from STEM initiatives to Career and Technical Education programs in order to document ongoing professional development. A bulb digital portfolio is used by students to create, collect and showcase their latest ideas and best work when applying for college or a job. Teachers can use bulb to keep lessons, track professional development goals and to showcase credentials or badges earned.
“We are focused on making sure all students, not only in our member districts, but across Massachusetts get an education infused with leading-edge solutions. In partnership with bulb Digital Portfolios, students can create a complete record of their work to use for life,” said Nadine Ekstrom, Executive Director of EDCO Collaborative. “Digital portfolios align with the attainment and workforce goals we have in EDCO Collaborative. Partnerships like this make supporting teachers in the tall order of inspiring and empowering students possible.”
Schools and districts have access to special pricing, professional development, implementation support and training for teachers when purchasing bulb Digital Portfolios through EDCO Collaborative.
“It’s a pleasure to support EDCO Collaborative and to help advance their mission of helping students tell their whole learning story with a bulb digital portfolio,” said Andrew Cary, Senior Vice President of Strategy and Partnerships at bulb. “Working together, we’ll help schools across Massachusetts continue to modernize and adopt the use of digital portfolios to record a student’s complete body of work – academic-oriented work and beyond.”
bulb is a web-based tool where students collect digital evidence of their learning (images, videos, documents, audio, embeds) and showcase their work beautifully and professionally.
