Adding SL Activities
Students can add SL activities from their SL worksheet by clicking the Add Service button.
This will allow them to enter their activity details, including the:
- Service Name
- Start and End Dates
- Activity Supervisor Information (Name, Email Address, Phone Number, and Title)
- Targeted learning outcomes (if enabled by the SL Coordinator)
Once a student has added an activity, it will be submitted to the SL Advisor or SL Coordinator for approval.
Approving SL Activities
As an SL Advisor or SL Coordinator, you can approve activities in two different ways.
Via Reviews & Progress > Service Learning > Approvals
Via the SL Worksheet
The second way to approve activities is by clicking into a student's SL worksheet, which you can access by selecting the year group under the Year Groups tab > SL tab. This will bring up the student roster.
After selecting an activity, select Approved from the service Status dropdown. This will notify the student via e-mail that her activity has been approved and that she is able to proceed.
Completing SL Questions and Reflections
Via Student's SL Activity
Students can add Journals, Websites, YouTube videos, Photos, and Files under the Reflections tab. Each reflection can be linked to one or more of the targeted learning outcomes if learning outcomes have been enabled for the Group.
Reviewing SL Activities
Supervisor reviews are a way for specific activity supervisors to comment on the student’s progress, effort and commitment. In ManageBac, you can integrate these comments directly into the student's SL Worksheet.
How to send a Review Request
In order to obtain an online SL Review from their activity supervisor, students must add at least one Reflection to the Reflections tab. Their SL advisor must also mark the activity as Approved. Only then will the Request Supervisor Review button appear. Either the student or the SL advisor can click on this to send an email request to the supervisor.
From the Supervisor's view
The supervisor will click on the link in their email to complete a survey about the student's participation. They will be asked to comment on the student's progress. They will also be asked to tick each outcome the student completed successfully, and confirm the student completed the activity successfully. When they are done, they can click Submit Final Review to add the review to the student's worksheet.
Recording SL Interviews
Via Year Groups > SL
You'll be asked to enter a title, your comments, and the date. Select Record as Interview Note and Post Note to save changes.
