Enhance parent partnerships and capture your students in action

parent partnershipsThis morning we came across keepy, a new app that allows users to capture photos and audio bits, catalogue them in their “digital keepsake box,” and share them with others. We thought this tool would be particularly useful for teachers, especially those who want to enhance parent partnerships.  

After you’ve taken a photo of your students' work or captured them in an audio snippet, you can share these artifacts with parents through email, Facebook, and Twitter. What makes keepy super cool is that you can edit all of your keepies directly inside the application.  

In addition to these features, the keepy catalogue system allows you to add your students’ names, location and the date your keepy was created. When you’re done, parents can "fan" your catalogue so they can see all your keepies and leave video comments on them.

Pretty cool, huh?
