Tapestry was originally designed as an online learning journal. We wanted to make the process of making and sending learning journals easier and cheaper, as well as maintain and improve the way that learning journals foster a great partnership between families and settings. Since Tapestry’s release on October 1st 2012 we have regularly added new features, and we continue to do so! If you aren’t sure whether Tapestry can meet your needs, or if you’d like to request a feature, feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Upload as many photos, videos, audio files and documents such as Word, PPT, PDF and Excel as you’d like.
Use #hashtags in observations to identify key-phrases such as #childinitiated or specific focus points e.g. #behaviour, as well as for categorising observations e.g. #outdoors.
