Reflect & Record
Students create reflective entries in didbook Applications (with text, photos and files) to record their achievements, activities and aspirations.
Share & Showcase

The didbook Applications encourage students to create reflective didbook entries in all aspects of their learning and life - this means you can measure almost any area of school improvement.
