Three Ring...a very impressive app for teachers

Just came across an article on Mashable about Three Ring, a smartphone app which allows teachers to take a photo or video recording of student work, store, view and / or share online. The app allows teachers to assign the photo / video of students work with a student (you can upload class lists), create a metadata list to tag work, and use this digital repository as a searchable record of a students work.

Of course, this digital filing cabinet of the work done in your class can also help you manage and maintain a refreshed document library for your portfolio: something which has always been a chore for teachers.

And if you maintain a classroom wiki / site, as I do, Three Ring becomes a great way to connect students to a record of their work or share student work within or beyond the classroom.
