We are born to learn. An infant’s brain grows rapidly and remains highly "plastic" or malleable during the first five years.
Important creative thinking and social-emotional skills must take root early on to become stable parts of their evolving minds. Interactions with adults, activities with physical materials, and free play with peers all set the stage for learning that has been shown - time and again - to lead to future academic, professional and personal success.
Parents are now able to learn, monitor, and engage more with their children via with informal media.
We believe that if parents can incorporate a parent-facing reporting system into their busy lives, this data has the potential to encourage and support parent behaviors which improve learning for children.
ChildFolio connects all stakeholders - parents, caregivers, teachers, curriculum developers - with a vested interest in a child’s educational outcomes together, with common visibility into the child’s growth, experiences, successes and struggles, in a way that encourages interactions with the child to further support their comprehensive learning.
Ratings and Reviews
Great app to share with parents
Really simple to use. As a teacher, it has come in handy to voice record and take picture directly into their portfolio then, rate them accordingly. If I had a question about how to rate their skills they have descriptions and examples readily available.
The app will often lock me out and I have to I un-download the app then re-download. I have an IPhone and I make sure to update the app every time it’s suggested. Also I have the Mother Goose Time curriculum which I set up on the app when I first created my classroom, but when I evaluate the kids (do an assignment) instead of letting me give the kids the benchmark that coordinates with Mother Goose Time it will ask me to choose which level they are. I also wish I could print a comprehensive report of each learning domain to show my parent and be able to break up my overall “level” score or benchmark score into each quarter. Just not super user friendly. I do like that you can add a note, a picture/video, and do your assessment and be able to share it with the families.
Do the developers know what they’re doing?
I have no clue how this is still used in schools. The app requires multiple refreshes before any of my ratings or moments appear. This is. It user friendly at all. I have to use the app to archive my class then I can only add students using the web page and then have to go back to he app to set the rating period. I’m wondering if the people who develop this app ever test it out themselves. I was hoping this would help me as a teacher but it o it makes my job that much harder. Please get a real, active teachers input.
