7.3 Monitoring your progress

Use your records or logbook to help you provide a reflective commentary on:

  • what you did to help you set up and use IT methods and techniques to achieve your goals; for example, what you did to:

    • search for information and explore alternative lines of enquiry;

    • exchange information to meet your purpose (e.g. email, computer conferencing, video conferencing, web pages, document sharing systems);

    • use IT to derive new information (e.g. in making calculations, integrating information from different sources, predicting trends or creating new designs);

    • choose criteria and use them to critically evaluate the quality of your work;

  • the use you made of resources and feedback comments to improve your skills and the quality of your work; with hindsight, would you do anything differently in improving your skills and using IT to improve the quality of your work?

  • the choices you made as you developed and used IT skills for particular purposes; assess, making reference to criteria and targets where relevant, how effective your use of IT has been. Include any changes you have made to your strategy; for example, what you changed to overcome problems, why you made the changes, and what was or was not successful.
