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.
