The Reflective Tools (I say tools but it is really 2 versions of the same Tool) were sent out to test on 18 Feb. Thanks to our willing helpers from the Working Group.
I was a little concerned when I realised that I was unable to save the active form into a usable PDF document. But not one to be discouraged (for long!) with a bit of rethinking we now have two versions of the Tool – one for those who prefer to complete on screen and one for those more comfortable with a printed document.
Downloadable e-version: This version can be downloaded and saved to your computer normally – completed on screen and saved as you go. If you want a tea break, you can save your work and stick the kettle on. Come back to it when you can. No one else sees what you write. When you have finished and want to use your Tool for supervision or Peer Support, simply print it and go. TIP: Print the introduction once and keep it handy. Each time you complete the Tool (perhaps for different children or at different times), you then need only print from the start of the self-completion Tool (currently page eight onwards).
Downloadable PDF version: This version is intended to be used as a printed document. It has more space to write your reflections. You need to save your reflections as a hard copy. You cannot type into this document.
We’re grateful to all our enthusiastic volunteers and we look forward to your comments. Don’t spare our feelings – we want the Tool to be as useful as it can be.
