Tracker Apps

Client
The Tracker Apps team is comprised of educational experts with a passion for supporting student agency through self-awareness. They believe in the power of data to provide feedback to students and teachers on skill development and curriculum implementation of the International Baccalaureate programmes.
Market Challenge
The International Baccalaureate® (IB) Diploma Programme (DP) curriculum sets out the requirements for study of the DP. The DP core aims to broaden students’ educational experience and challenge them to apply their knowledge and skills. It will become more crucial that IB schools are able to properly record, evidence and report the skills that students are honing. Also, it is crucial for students to service learning with the development of learner profile attributes and approaches to learning skills.
Solution
To anticipate on this opportunity in the market, Tracker Apps created two products: Skill Tracker and Service Tracker. Both products consist of a mobile applications and web platform accessible for students and teachers. Skill Tracker is a platform that enables students and teachers to track student progress with regards to ATL skills. It ultimately shifts the burden of managing students' ATL skill progress away from teachers and empowers students to log, track and take ownership of their journey through Skill development. Through elements of gamification, it solves the challenge of motivating students to track their ATL skill development. Service Tracker is a journal, log book and guided reflection process all rolled into one. It allows students to record their service learning plans, activities, experiences and reflections. It enables students, teachers and coordinators to easily follow the 5 stages of service learning in all projects. Both products are being used by 20 schools in 14 different countries spread over 5 continents
