Free Learning Outcomes Digital Portfolio for Project-Based Learning
Project-based learning is so much more than a grade. It is all about the experience. This FREE digital portfolio is a great place for students to add and manage learning outcomes from project-based learning experiences. The result is a robust portfolio of self- and teacher-evaluations, reflections, goal and skill-development analysis, evidence of learning, and more. Students can carry this portfolio with them through to job interviews, college interviews, and more. #projectbasedlearning
