What Are Skills and Topics in Reflectivity?

 Available for a Reflectivity team only

Reflectivity provides you with a possibility to choose or create skills and topics that you want to work on and reflect. Skills describe the solutions teachers are working on in their classrooms. There can be many Skills under one Topic. 

Select a skill

You can get inspiration to choose skills that you would like to work on from the Most active and New boards. Change the proposed sets of skills by selecting a different topic from the drop-down menu at the top left corner.

Check-in screen

Once you start working on a skill, it is important to have a possibility to check in with yourself on your progress. You can adjust your mood towards your work and, optionally, dive deeper with a written reflection. To reflect on a skill, choose it on either board, сlick on "You" tile, select "Check-in" at the top right corner of your screen, choose your desired state in one month, write a reflection, optionally add a video evidence, choose with whom you'd like to share it with, and select your next step.

If you added reflections to your topic, you can view, share, and edit them from the history page by clicking on the "View" next to it. 

Sharing a reflection

You can start a discussion with a colleague about your written and video reflections. To do so, when reflecting, choose either "Share with a community" option or directly share it with any of the colleagues that you'd like. If you share it with Community, you can unshare it later if you wish.

You can also share a reflection by clicking on the tile "You" in the skill and choosing a reflection which you would like to share. Then, click the share arrow and choose who you would like to share with directly. You can also publicly share reflections with your whole organisation by selecting "Community" button.

Once you have shared your reflection, a discussion board will open on the right side of it. You and anyone you have shared your reflection with can view and leave comments. You can see with whom exactly you shared your reflection selecting a person icon. Please be informed, that if you have included video evidence in your reflection, the video will be visible to the person that you have shared it with only in the reflection itself. The video evidence will not appear in their Shared with Me Videos feed unless you share it with them separately from your reflection. If you want to comment a reflection that was shared with you, you will need to first join the community if you haven't done this yet.

You can work on up to three skills simultaneously. If you would like to start working on a new skill, but you already have 3 active ones, you will be prompted to choose which skill you wish to leave before activating a new one. After leaving one of the three skills, a screen will open for you to choose your future state for the new skill.
