At the Overseas School of Colombo DP students keep track of their goal-setting and progress using online blogs that are freely available through www.blogger.com and wordpress.com. The idea of this reflective space is for students to chart their growth and progress in the Creativity Action & Service components as they navigate the Diploma Program. Students are encouraged to use pictures, videos and links to make these visually stimulating records of their CAS experience. The reflections connect back to the eight IB stipulated learning outcomes that are at the core of their CAS experience. The blogs are publically available and are also used to give evidence of extra-curricular participation for university applications.

Several OSC service projects also run dedicated reflective blogs that document their activities. These are available on the link above.
