Developing and assessing students’ social-emotional skills is a growing area of interest in U.S. schools as education leaders seek to educate the whole child and teach more than core curriculum requirements. Community service is one way to develop empathy, help students find potential career interests, and build a stronger connection with their community. Busy school administrators, however, may not encourage or require community service because of how difficult and time consuming it is to manage these programs. x2VOL not only makes it easier for schools and students to manage the process of student service but it also brings added social-emotional benefits because x2VOL requires students to reflect on their service. Through reflections, they make a more meaningful connection to the world around them.
The CODiE judges praised x2VOL for its ease of use and streamlined record-keeping. “Tracking, managing and reflecting on these experiences over many years can be difficult to organize,” wrote one judge about the difficulty schools have in managing community service. “This software connects and tracks the people who need help, the children who want to help and the school districts who need to track the data. x2VOL also provides official transcripts for universities or future employers. Bravo.”
“It is a great honor for x2VOL to be nominated again for the Best Social-Emotional Development Solution in K-12 education,” said Michele Pitman, CEO and founder of intelliVOL. “Winning the category last year was real validation of x2VOL’s value but being a finalist again, after we have added such amazing enhancements like the Official Service Transcript and individual membership, is a real shot in the arm for our team who has worked so hard to add these features in 2018. Our goal is to make x2VOL accessible to every student in the U.S. through school subscription or via individual membership, so they can demonstrate who they are outside of the classroom and academics.”
“I am impressed by the level of innovation and creativity demonstrated by the 2018 CODiE award finalists. These products are opening doors for learners of all ages by developing and utilizing new technologies to respond to student and educator needs,” said Ken Wasch, president of SIIA.
