About App
The Reflector App was created with the aim to make reflection in the youth projects and activities more varied, accessible and mobile. We tried to make the App very visible and intuitive. Something that you have in your pocket and can easily use to record your experience and learning outcomes.

The App could be used in different settings for personal reflection of youth workers, in the youth projects together with young people, by international volunteers and their mentors or maybe just during travel to reflect about experience.
Start using for free
Reflector App is available for free on the App Store and Google Play.
So start to reflect!
This booklet is a
complementary document to the app and is
offering some deeper understanding of
reflection in learning.
About the project
'Reflector' is a strategic partnership project in the field of youth work and non-formal education supported by Erasmus+ programme.

The project took place in 2020 - 2022 and gathered five organisations from Estonia, Finland, Italy, Portugal and Slovenia.

The aim of the Reflector project is to foster quality improvements in youth work through increasing the quality of reflection process with young people in non-formal education in order to support the development of agency and active citizenship.

Within the project will be developed two intellectual outputs:

How to use the App
Everything that you fill inside is visible only for you, the same with young people. It is kinda personal interactive diary, always accessible on your phone. While using a group it is possible to share after in a circle, but no one has access to content created by users. Don't worry it is safe and private!

The App welcomes you with invitation - Start reflecting

At the button you have 3 icons.

Calendar - timeline, where possible to check previous reflections (available after registration).
Magnifier - to explore reflections in the App
Spark - to see your own progress.

After starting reflecting you need to choose a method and register or sign in. If you forgot your password, it is possible to restore.
When you choose methods you can reflect!

On the top you can see two more icons.

Heart - allows you to save favourite reflections for faster access in the future
Eye - gives you tips on how to facilitate this reflection with the group of young people.

In most methods you can write your thoughts or add a picture from your phone. For the each reflection you need to add # , what is actually a name or keyword for your reflection. For example if you are using the App during the project and may use the name of it and it will be easy to find all your reflections from those particular project.

That is actually it! You can always come back to your reflection in the timeline and add new ones.
