Moving beyond the tracking and reporting features that make x2VOL so valued in schools which have struggled to manage the tedious process of arranging and logging student service hours, x2VOL encourages students to develop meaningful reflections about their service. Students record how their service affected their perceptions and this helps them grow personally and become more aware of the world around them.
The Social-Emotional Development Solution category of the CODiE was intended to recognize technology like x2VOL that develops social and emotional skills in students. This is a growing area of interest in U.S. schools as education leaders seeks to educate the whole-child, and teach more than curriculum requirements.
This was a new category for the CODiE Awards which indicates that character building and social skills are gaining importance in education. “It is truly an honor for x2VOL to win this CODiE Award in this new category because it stresses the importance of social development,” said Michele Pitman, CEO and founder of intelliVOL. “Every day thousands of educators, college counselors, and service advisors work to help students grow personally and develop empathy and compassion with their community. We share this CODiE award with them and honor their dedication.”
Judges praised x2VOL for how it managed the process and how it encourages “collaboration between all stakeholders regarding community service project hours.” x2VOL has tracked and approved over 20 million student service hours.
