What is Service Tracker?
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.
Why Implement Skill Tracker in your School?
It encourages students to connect service learning with the development of learner profile attributes and approaches to learning (ATL) skills. It provides teachers with real-time, detailed information about the service learning activities that students are involved in. Additionally, it helps schools see the impact of service learning on their students and the achievement of service learning outcomes.
IB Programme Development
Service Tracker is a unique tool for IB schools to monitor and document service learning projects. It uses the 5 CAS stages of service learning for reflection, providing the perfect transition between MYP service and DP CAS. It also helps schools to meet a number of the revised IB Programme Standards and Practices.
Skill Tracker provides administrators with highly informative and actionable data. This student generated data is intuitively organised and gives real-time feedback on skill development that handily informs curriculum planning, teaching and assessment. This can help teachers to identify gaps in curriculum, adjust their course planning according to what students might be lacking according to their tracked skills.
Benefits for Teachers
Teachers have reduced administrative loads as they don’t have to design their own system for students to plan act and reflect. It removes the burden of monitoring log books, paper records, reminders to students. It additionally provides all teachers with detailed and instant data on student service learning. This provides a different perspective of a student beyond their academic or sporting progress.
Benefits for Students
Students are guided through the 5 stages of service learning from investigation to reflection. In-app prompts help students make the connection between their skills, talents and interests, and an authentic need for service learning. Our structure ensures that service opportunities become service learning that will live long in the student’s memory.
Designed with students in mind
The design prompts critical thinking and reflection at all stages of the process and helps students to organise thoughts and actions in an engaging and accessible way. The learning comes through ongoing reflection and this tool supports that process in fun and easy ways. It also provides a way for students to document service learning which is very useful information to have when students are applying to colleges universities and jobs.
With Service Tracker’s platform, students are prompted to engage in meaningful service learning activities, through guided planning, action and reflection stages.
