The Guide by your Side
Customizable Software Applications
With both Skill Tracker and Service Tracker, together or separate, you are in good hands to track student progress.
Both products were created to work separately or in tandem, in order to ease the implementation of the IB’s new Standards and Practices for 2020.
Skill Tracker is a platform that enables students and teachers to track student progress with regards to ATL skills. It ultimately alleviates teachers and coordinators of the burden of managing students’ ATL skill progress. In doing so, it also empowers students to log, track and take ownership of their journey through skill development.
Service Tracker is a journal, log book and guided reflection process all rolled into one. It allows students to record their service learning plans activities, experiences and reflections. It enables students, teachers and coordinators to easily follow the 5 stages of service learning in all projects.

Tracker Apps shifts the job of monitoring Service Learning Projects away from teachers and empowers students manage this on their own. Data generated by students provides teachers with up to the minute feedback on student progress.
For Students and Parents
Our software is designed to prompt critical thinking, logging of skills and reflection at all stages of the student’s progress.
With the tightening of ATL requirements coming 2020 for schools in the International Baccalaureate Community, it will become more crucial that IB schools are able to properly record, evidence and report on Approaches to Learning Skills and Service Learning Projects.
As a company founded by educators, we understand the challenges that Administrations, Teacher and Students face when fulfilling curriculum and administrative requirements. This is why we started with two applications that focus on logging and tracking ATL’s and Service Learning.
