4 Updates to ClassDojo's Student Stories

Last fall ClassDojo introduced a new digital portfolio tool that they call Student Stories. Initially, it was only available on iPads then it expanded to users of all types of computers and tablets. Student Stories puts students in charge of assembling their portfolios. Their portfolios can include digital work as well as physical work that they take pictures of with a camera on a mobile device or on a laptop. Recently, ClassDojo added four new features to Student Stories that increase the number of ways in which students can showcase their work.

1. Videos in Student Stories can now be up to five minutes long.
2. Students can now draw within Student Stories. This is great for annotating work or just using handwriting to sketch a diagram.
3. There is now a journal component to Student Stories.
4. Digital stickers and frames can now be added to students' work in Student Stories.
