Learning Portfolio PebblePad

Learn more about the Terminology used in PebblePad.


An asset is a file you upload or a “Creative” item you develop in Pebble+.

When you save an item in PebblePad, such as a Portfolio or filled out Workbook, they become Assets in your Asset Store. Assets contain personal content that can be used to showcase as a record of learning.

Templates and Workbooks

Templates and workbooks are designed to provide a structure for your learning or reflections. They include fillable areas with prompts and spaces for you to add your thoughts, responses and evidence.


A template is just single page 'empty' form, when completed and saved becomes an asset in your PebblePad store. Some templates can be completed many times (resulting in many assets) whilst others are single-use only.


At their simplest, workbooks are simply binders for multiple templates. However, workbooks can also be created as interactive multi-page learning packages that can contain course content, media and links to other resources. They become personalised as you add your responses, thoughts and reflections.
