Reflectly

This is an app for a personal (professional) daily reflection that can help develop the competency to analyze situations in a comprehensive manner.

Why did I choose this tool? Reflectly is a very easy to use and also kind of a fun way to reflect on the day and on different topics about yourself, your work, people, values, behaviours, dreams, etc.

How does this apply to being a trainer? Being a trainer requires a lot of analysis of what is happening in the group, within the team and within you. Becoming more conscious of the processes helps you to improve as a trainer as well as your way of reacting in certain situations and using them for educational interventions rather than following the pre-set program blindly. Developing a habit of reflection contributes to personal well being and working efficiently in a group of trainers.

Main content: Reflectly is a journal utilizing artificial intelligence to help you structure and reflect upon your daily thoughts and problems. Making it a daily habit to reflect on the every-day experiences will add to both experiential learning and personal/professional development and will also contribute to the “practice what you preach” aspect of educators’ work.

Reflectly is available in the AppStore and GooglePlay, is free of charge (unless you want to go premium) and very easy to use.

Exercises:

How to apply it in everyday life: Reflectly as an app reminds us about itself everyday in the morning and in the evening. So the app itself also contributes to the development of reflectivity as a habit and a day-to-day practice which comes in handy in professional life. Start with taking 10 minutes every evening to look back at the day.
