With the move to primarily/only digital literature, how are units handling no physical Scout Handbook?
In our troop, we gift new scouts with a Handbook so that they have the knowledge on hand to review and learn from. They are known for referencing their handbooks each week as the Troop Guide and Instructor lead them through new camping lessons. As they complete items, the youth and adult leaders mark items off in the scouts’ handbooks and let the advancement chair know so it can be recorded.
I know Scoutbook is the main location for recording advancement items, but our troop is still in transition from a different program for record keeping and many of my scouts do not have access to tech for recording into Scoutbook on their own. How are other units handling this transition and the ever increasing reliability on technology to access knowledge and records keeping?
