  • i am an ib student and this ib has just ben introduced and it is so annoying, it's reflection this, reflection that, what profile did you use, how did it help you? When i get older im not going to get home and go, 'hmmmm what did i do today, i better write a 1000 word reflection on it!' I can see how it helps but next to no teachers know how to use it and then the teachers have a go at us because we don't know something we havn't learnt or practice!
