    Default Switching to electronic LJs

    I'm currently using a paper based learning journey that I've created myself but a bit conscious that it doesn't look very professional! If I suddenly switch to an electronic system can i backdate all my observations and entries so j can do away with the paper one altogether? Thanks

    You can just finish paper LJ on one date and start online the next day, no need to enter all the old obs online (but if you want to you can). I started online when I had a new child anyway and the others just have half on paper and then the rest online.

    For the ones that were not too big I just photo graphed the observations and added them to the electronic one, for the ones that were bigger I simply stopped the handwritten one and started the new electronic one.

    I've started using tapestry, I quite like it as I have the app on my phone so can use photos I've taken on my phone for obs and update lj eg when getting my toddler to sleep!! I keep much more up to date these days as I don't have to transfer photos from phone to PC then sit at comp and do the obs, used to take forever
