Much evidence supports the use of reflective practice for personal development, yet it is not commonly used as a learning tool in students. More typically, reflective writing is assessed as a stand-alone piece of work. The objective is then simply a grade. The proposed project would actively promote the use reflections to improve performance by means of using technology to record, store and retrieve them. These individual reflections will populate a database so that ultimately, with permission, each individual's reflections can be accessed by others via the database. Thus these reflections will become a learning tool for students. Using technology facilitates classification and retrieval and reduces the problems associated with human memory.
