Empower real world learning
Design and facilitate learning communities that enable every learner to engage in the real world, showcase their skills, and build their body of work. Teachers & learners deserve a more creative toolkit. Design and document projects, showcase skills through badges & portfolios, and connect learning with the world.
Co-designed with innovative, learner-centered organizations
Working in schools, I've gotten to know inspiring students and innovative educators. Unfortunately, so much of their magic goes unrecognized in the traditional ways we design & measure learning.
Inkwire was born out of a belief that if we can give learners and educators new ways to share their learning with an authentic audience, we may be able to bridge the gap between how academic success is currently measured and an education system that truly respects every learner.

"Inkwire takes a more student centered approach to assessment. All students can easily create a digital portfolio of any evidence that they are proud of. Inkwire moves us in a direction to eliminate inequitable grading systems."
Power student-centered learning
Design projects and conduct authentic performance assessments
Turn any activity into an authentic assessment
Allow students to demonstrate learning in a variety of ways––audio, video, links, documents––and have it displayed in beautiful gallery format to encourage sharing and feedback.
With support for embedding, whether it's Scratch projects, Flipgrid videos, 3D designs, or Google Slides, you can capture and display anything in Inkwire.
Everything a learner uploads goes into their digital Binder, accessible and easy-to-search at any time.
Design & differentiate
Design a full project experience for students on Inkwire. Add another educator as a Designer to create interdisciplinary projects. Or, open up design access to students to collaboratively design personalized projects.
Provide instructions and resources so that students can have immediate access and go at their own pace–freeing up the teacher to provide individual support.
“Inkwire is an amazing platform that uplifts students voices by providing them the space to post their work in multiple formats, see the work of their peers as well as provide feedback.
My favorite feature is the Binder, since it is a collection of all your work and as a teacher I can view by user, which would be helpful during a Family Conference.”
“Now, my students are able to post performance assessments and communication of their process. Inkwire enables them give feedback to each other which creates a more student centered approach to assessment.
I also use it now to collect their work and give them feedback. It has made authentic feedback significantly faster than it used to be.”
“Inkwire helps my students learn from peers, practice providing useful feedback to each other, and document work that can easily be transformed into a portfolio.
I love the ease of students sharing project work with each other, allowing them to easily comment on more visual aspects of work. It’s like if Padlet and Google classroom had a baby.”
Portfolios with a purpose
More than just a portfolio builder, Inkwire helps learners curate their work for specific audiences and milestones in their academic journeys.
Upload and organize
Whether the work lives on Google Classroom, Google Drive, physical notebooks, or anywhere else, Inkwire makes it easy to upload onto their digital binder and then curate into shareable, digital portfolios.
Curate and reflect
Without having to learn an advanced design tool, learners will spend less time fiddling with layout and more time curating and reflecting on their work.
With our organizational directory, students can easily share their portfolios with peers, staff, and families. And with our showcase tools and reflection templates, use Inkwire to scaffold portfolio creation for events like family conferences or graduation portfolio presentations.
“The portfolio builder + binder in Inkwire is unlike anything out there. Rather than having students trying to remember what they did, it allows them to think carefully and deeply about what they want to share to their parents and the public and how they want to present it. It reduces busy work and increases student agency.”
“Inkwire is helping us showcase student work to other students, families and the larger community. It's helping with our teacher professional development. Teachers are able to see what other teachers are doing and build a library of exemplars.”
