The Museum School of Avondale Estates, recognized as a leader in innovative education, has implemented the iFOLIO Digital Portfolio Platform for 6th, 7th, and 8th grade students to learn and bring their stories to life.
Katherine Kelbaugh, principal of The Museum School of Avondale Estates and 2018 Georgia Charter School Association Leader of the Year is committed to providing students with exceptional learning opportunities and experiences. Principal Kelbaugh elaborates on her reasons for selecting iFOLIO:
"Celebrating and showcasing the whole child is a priority for us and to achieve that, iFOLIO is the perfect solution. iFOLIO is the ideal partner for our K-8 school as we look for meaningful ways to engage our students while preparing them for a successful future. iFOLIO provides value to students as both a learning tool and a presentation tool. iFOLIO templates can be personalized by students for different uses, whether for college and career prep or for projects and sports. Especially important to us is that the iFOLIO Student template is designed to help students understand and target items that college admission offices care about."
Higher education has long encouraged the use of portfolios for assessment and presentation. Students with digital portfolios exhibit a 10 percent improvement in Grade Point Average and 85 percent of student users believe their digital portfolio made them more aware of their growth as learners, according to the International Journal of ePortfolio.
