We have recently updated the way skills are tagged and recorded on Kloodle. The new method will allow colleges, schools and universities to specify the skills tags they want their students to use when uploading evidence such as photos, blogs, videos and documents.
Many institutions have recognised the importance of soft skills and have developed frameworks and passports that incorporate these skills into the curriculum. This incorporation helps to provide students with the vocabulary of employability, enabling them to better articulate the skills they are developing and their value to an employer.
Kloodle now reflects the various skills frameworks by allowing institutions to specify their own skills set. You can learn how to do this in the following tutorial https://pages.kloodle.com/2016/05/26/creating-bespoke-skill-labels-college/
The concept of distance travelled is also an important one in education. The academic progress a student has made is fairly straight forward to record. Teachers keep a log of the grades a student receives, and this allows them to track progress over time. Soft skills are a much more abstract concept and more difficult to track. Kloodle now enables institutions to capture this progress via our progression wheel comparison tool.
