Why Folio

Folio is more than just tracking software. Our purpose and value go beyond simply recording and monitoring professional development activities. The myFolio platform is focused on giving faculty, staff and school leaders the helpful prompts, convenient tools, and practical information they need to improve classroom practices, ensure student learning, encourage professional growth, and stay connected to each other.

With myFolio, that learning and growth are centered on direct, honest conversation about classroom (be it in-person or virtual) instruction and performance. This is why conversation and collaboration are the crux of our process. Folio provides the tools administrators need to:

  • Guide faculty and staff in aligning individual goals with school values and priorities
  • Help manage conversations with members of their team
  • Create a place for faculty and staff to support each other with ideas, inspiration, best practices and helpful resources
  • Understand faculty and staff members’ current mood and motivation
  • Capture and respond to professional development requests
  • Understand through observation and conversation who is thriving and who is struggling
  • Encourage growth through self-reflection
  • Inspire teachers to go beyond self-preservation to safe, honest reflection

Addressing the Needs of Faculty and Staff

Folio knows that faculty and staff need:

  • A process to be deliberate about professional growth and learning, articulating what they want to achieve and having conversation, observation and reflection around those goals
  • A place to organize, manage and track professional growth and learning goals
  • Conversation and feedback around their teaching from their supervisor and colleagues
  • Space and time for reflections
  • Help accelerating their growth
  • A tool they want to use when nobody is watching
  • To connect, share, ask each other questions, and support each other as they grow and learn

Schools that have this growth and learning mindset see constant improvement in classroom instruction and student success, higher staff morale, and ease in attracting and retaining the best teachers.
