Becoming a reflective practitioner - The Learner's Way - 1 views

    There are particular behaviours and a mindset that accompanies effective reflective practice. Understanding and applying these allows us to become reflective practitioners.

Realising the benefits of reflective practice - The Learner's Way - 1 views

    It is generally accepted that learning is enhanced by the inclusion of deliberate, reflective practice. Indeed the act of reflecting on the impact that our actions have towards the achievement of any goal (learning oriented or other) is shown to have a positive impact. Reflective practice is defined as the praxis (interdependent and integrated theory, practice, research, thought and action) of individuals or groups to move from 'better thinking to better action' as a result of reflection for, in and on learning (Harvey et al. 2010 p140). With this in mind, it is worth considering what reflective practice might look like and to consider it in a range of contemporary contexts.

Enhancing the power of our reflective practice - The Learner's Way - 1 views

    "We do not learn from experience... we learn from reflecting on experience." ― John Dewey These words by John Dewey point to a truth about learning that is often forgotten. Experience alone is not sufficient for true learning to occur; reflection is an essential part of the process and our failure to include time for this is why our learning often does not stick.

    Routinely asking students to ponder -- deeply and seriously -- what and how they've learned could be the "mind's strongest glue." It works for adults, too.

    I found this to be very informative and useful in developing my first E-portfolio.

Why Reflect? - Reflection for Learning - 3 views

  • What are the pedagogical and physiological foundations of reflection for learning? Why is reflection important for learning? What does the literature say about how reflection supports learning
    This Google site is focused on reflection. I believe it is work from Helen Barrett. Fine referernce.
    Looks like a good starting place for an overview of reflective learning, linking back to Dewey, and particularly Kolb.

Teaching with Technology in the Middle: Diigo for Digital Writing Reflection - 2 views

  • I've been having my students use the social bookmarking site, Diigo, since the start of the school year.  They've used it to keep track of information they find on the web, to share information with our class group, and also to respond to digital texts they read.  And even though the bookmarklet, Diigolet, is significantly less convenient that the Diigo toolbar (which can't be installed on our school computers), most of my students are now are at a point where they have seamlessly integrated this bookmarking tool into their web browsing. 
  • Presently, the writing we're doing has taken the form of a fairly open writing workshop, where students write across various genres about about topics of importance to them, publishing these pieces to their blogs every couple of weeks.
  • Assessment of how students meet these goals is done by the students themselves, as for each piece they publish they write a reflection where they identify and explain aspects of their piece that show the following:    -evidence of themselves as thinkers    -evidence of using revision to improve their writing    -evidence of how they worked through challenges
  • ...3 more annotations...
  • But this morning while I was preparing my class for the day, it occurred to me that Diigo's web highlighter and sticky note tools would allow them to carry out that same assignment without paper.  In addition, it would also take students less time to complete, let others read the reflections they wrote, and make it easier for me to access and grade their work. 
  • Since all of my students publish their writing on their individual blogs, they can use Diigo to bookmark their posts, highlight parts that demonstrate their thinking, revisions, and challenges, and include sticky notes on the page to include their written explanations and reflections
  • Students would also select the option that allowed the page and its annotations to be shared with our class Diigo group, so when I or any other student visited our class Diigo library they could see each students' bookmarked blog post, and beneath that post, a display of the excerpts highlighted and the sticky note responses that had been recorded. For grading, I only needed to visit our Diigo page and use this rubric to assess my students' work.

Write In Private: Free Online Diary And Personal Journal | Penzu - 1 views

  • Your own personal journal and online diary.
    This is an online journaling application for writing down your thoughts. Accessible through any online access. This is great way for reflecting, and is more secure than a paper journal. I could use this in my class to have students reflect on thier progress throughout the course or to reflect on group work that they have completed. This is a more techologically advanced form of the traditional notebook journal.
    This is SOOOOO cool! I could have students create interactive journals in my Written Communication or Oral/Interpersonal Communication class!
