Learning Story for Parents

The focus of Edsby’s learning evidence system is to support the assessment, evaluation, and reporting practices of K-12 teachers. Edsby provides teachers with tools to capture evidence regarding student learning. Once captured, teachers can create Learning Stories to share with parents.

Parents can view evidence teachers have shared through their child’s Learning Story. This feed is available on both mobile and browser interfaces and shows shared learning evidence captured by the student or teacher with the newest posts at the top of the feed.

Each item includes the teacher’s observation, the media – usually one or two pictures -and any conversation with the student.

Items also show a list of the learning expectations/standards associated with the item which are displayed when students and parents hover over the item.

Finally, there is a conversational feed to enable the teacher, the student, or the parent to reflect and discuss the learning associated with the item.
