COOL Portfolio

Help your students grow

Let students celebrate their learning! Have them set goals, acquire 21st century skills and reflect by building their own digital Portfolio.

A COOL learning collection

COOL Portfolio offers a fun and easy way for students to see and share what they’ve learned. By posting in-progress and completed assignments to their timeline, students capture their learning throughout the year and across grade levels. Teachers gain valuable insights into student progress, while parents can celebrate their child’s achievements!

Goal-oriented learning

8 preset learning goals and skill badges support a goal-oriented and rewarding learning experience. Goals are based on 21st century skills like team play, confidence and problem solving. Students select up to 3 for each assignment. This gives them space for ownership and choice, and boosts students’ motivation to learn! In turn, teachers can award one or more badges or pin an assignment in the special „Spotlight“ area.

Reward students for achieving goals

Easy assignment management

Gamified learning that lasts

Make progress count with gamification

Each badge obtained earns a student points. Points can be used to unlock additional Portfolio themes. This isn’t only fun, it also helps students build confidence! The total score for each badge is displayed in their profile. Here they can also view their current skill level: Bronze, Silver or Gold. This means students always have a clear overview of their progress and strengths, but also areas that still need attention.

Easy assignment management

Portfolio is fully integrated with Google for Education. Students can easily attach Docs, Slides or other files directly from their Drive. While students get to collect and present their work in one place, teachers enjoy easy assignment management. From your teacher timeline, you can filter, reward and spotlight posts, as well as visit student profiles to see individual progress.
