At UWCSEA we are having a mega tri-blog-athon over the next three months to focus on a variety of questions that we feel have been on the back-burner for a while but we want to give some attention to. The classic important, but not urgent questions that you rarely get time to think about. For me, the thing that I really want to reflect on is whether my learning logs are really enabling my students to record their reflective thinking effectively (#reflectioninception)
Over the next three months I plan to delve into a few key questions about reflection in my classroom.
- What do I really want my students to get from their learning logs?
- What do my students think they have learned from their reflection experiences?
- Which timings for reflections have been most significant?
- How can I improve the protocols for reflection to maximise their significance for students?
