Reflection in the Learning Process, Not As An Add On | Langwitches Blog

Reflection in the Learning Process, Not As An Add On | Langwitches Blog | 21st Century TESOL Resources | Scoop.it

According to Carol Rodgers in  Defining Reflection :Another Look at John Dewey and Reflective Thinking, four criteria emerge from Dewey’s work that characterize reflection.

 

1. Reflection is a meaning making process that moves a learner from one experience into the next with deeper understanding of its relationships with and its connections to other experiences and ideas.

 

2. Reflection is a systematic, rigorous way of thinking, with its roots in scientific inquiry.

 

3. Reflection needs to happen in community, in interaction with others

 

4. Reflection requires attitudes that value the personal and intellectual growth of oneself and others.

Rob Hatfield, M.Ed.'s insight:

This is an outstanding article on the power of deeper learning application and reflection. I also add metacognitive learning strategies with the  teaching and learning approaches. I shared the upgrade to KWL chart too.

"Reflection" ha many meanings - reflective teaching should become standard

Tonya Ward Singer's curator insight, January 31, 2014 11:34 AM

The impact of reflection on learning is true for student learning AND for professional, adult learning.  

 

This chart includes the key steps teachers engage in via collaborative inquiry.  It is a powerful professional-learning experience.

The Evolving Role of the Teacher

The Evolving Role of the Teacher | 21st Century TESOL Resources | Scoop.it

More teachers today are providing opportunities for their students to connect and learn in powerful ways. There is an increasing focus on collaboration, competency-based learning, use of open resources, project-based learning, and learning environments are shifting to support these new opportunities. These shifts are accelerated by access to technology that has transformed how we learn and interact with one another.

More Progressive Ways to Measure Deeper Levels of Learning | Mind/Shift

More Progressive Ways to Measure Deeper Levels of Learning | Mind/Shift | 21st Century TESOL Resources | Scoop.it
How do we measure learning beyond knowledge of content? Finding that winning combination of criteria can prove to be a complicated and sometimes difficult process. Schools that are pushing boundaries are learning that it takes time, a lot of conversation, and a willingness to let students participate in that evaluation.
Rob Hatfield, M.Ed.'s insight:

Remember that assessment is a feedback tool for the learner and the learning leader...for that moment in time. The assessment should not be the only indicator that progress toward the learning objectives is occurring, but rather a guide toward an expected outcome or goal. It is a false fallacy to only believe that standardized assessment (one- size-fits-all) can be used to determine all outcomes.
