On Wednesday night I gave an online presentation for Adobe titled ‘Developing student portfolios with Adobe Acrobat’. The webinar was shown live and I was joined by participants from all over the globe including several from the UK and Europe, which was fun.
During it I firstly explained that we struggle with how best to share our Year 6 student work with parents. My students complete work in so many different places these days, including online through Google docs and their personal student blogs. They complete fully functioning websites, write essays in word, create graphs in excel and design colourful posters too, so the issue of whether to print or not is one we grapple with constantly. Due to privacy controls I included screenshots showing what these portfolios can look like. Before discussing how we taught the students to use Acrobat and how we sent the finished interactive PDFs home to parents.
If you are looking for a way to share one document with parents that can include all types of files, look no further than Adobe Acrobat X. it is easy to use, contains many design elements and can store any file type including online web content.
