bulb Digital Portfolios Expands into Brazil

Partnership with EXP Grows Access to Modern Learning Tools for Students

(São Paulo, Brazil) May 14, 2019bulb Digital Portfolios, a modern learning tool used by students and educators, announced a strategic alliance with EXP – Educational Intelligence, a company committed to providing unique educational solutions, to help students build skills for the future. These two companies are teaming up to give students access to a simple, beautiful and powerful tool used to develop and refine ideas and display their work.

 

As the focus on competency-based learning grows and educators continue to shift away from traditional assessments like grades and test scores, teachers are using digital portfolios to assess knowledge, comprehension and abilities. Users in more than 125 countries use bulb to create, collect and share knowledge to make learning more transparent.

 

“When students build their digital portfolio, they create, refine, share and showcase their work, giving educators a holistic view of their abilities and competencies. This approach is the future of learning and will get us away from relying on tests as a measurement of success— a change we can all embrace. We look forward to working with EXP and school leaders across Brazil to modernize learning for all students,” said Eric Goldreyer, chief executive officer and co-founder of bulb Digital Portfolios.

 

When implementing a digital portfolio initiative, schools gain the ability to modernize learning by:

  • Incorporating a competency-based learning approach.
  • Documenting progress and growth over time.
  • Encouraging the development of digital literacy skills.
  • Personalizing learning and encouraging self-expression and voice.
  • Providing one place to create, curate and keep all work for life.

 

“Working with bulb Digital Portfolios will support our goal to prepare students today for a world that does not yet exist. We are proud to be aligned with them and for the huge benefit we can bring to students, schools, universities and professionals in Latin America,” said Henrique Tichauer, founder of EXP – Educational Intelligence.

 

A bulb digital portfolio is included in EXP’s proprietary product, TransFor.Me, with a unique digital experience where students and teachers can create, co-create and showcase their collaborative work. This program encourages a student’s creative potential, their ability to innovate and their entrepreneurial skills.
