Service Learning is a module that allows you to create a customizable service project. The configuration and functionality is based on CAS for DP and SA for MYP. Allowing non IB programmes to offer a custom service learning component in their Year Groups.
To access the SL configuration navigate to Settings and select a non IB programme. From the dropdown menu click Service Learning. The Overview page allows you to predefine labels for your project.
The Framework tab contains much of the configuration that will allow you to create a project fit for your needs. The options include:
Activity Tags can also be configured on the Framework page. They are simple a set of labels that a student can choose to apply to their activity. The examples from CAS include: Ongoing, School-based, Community-based, and international. Admin are able to set the name and colour of the activity tags to be displayed when creating a new activity. If you prefer not to use Activity Tags simply delete the existing ones and click Save Changes.
Hour Types offer a classification for activities (e.g. in CAS we have Creativity, Activity and Service). On the Hour Types page admin have the ability to reorder hour types, which will affect the order that they are displayed in to the students and teachers; edit, delete and add hour types. If you prefer to not to use Hour Types as a method to differentiate strands you may simply remove all the default types.
To add a new hour type there are 4 fields that need to be provided:
The terminology fields shown above allow you to create a project that will be familiar to your teachers and students based on local requirements or cultural terminology. The hint, located below each field, provides an explanation of what each term is referring to.
Student Progress allows teachers to communicate the progress the student's progress with the student, and other teachers involved in the project. The default list of statuses is identical to the statuses used for the IB core projects. However, you are able to edit the existing statuses by selecting a different icon or changing the title. Additional statuses can also be added by specifying the icon and title. "To Be Determined" cannot be deleted as it is used as the default status in situations where the student progress has not been evaluated yet or if the admin chooses to reset progress for all students. If a status is deleted that was currently assigned to a student, then that student's status will be set to "To Be Determined".
That concludes the configuration for Service Learning if you wish to customise rubrics that are being used to asses students' term progress please follow the link here.
