Ten Reflective Questions to Ask at the End of Class | Educating in a digital world | Scoop.it
Use these ten reflective questions at the end of class to help learners deepen their understandings of themselves and their work.

Mary Cunningham's insight:

These would be great questions for the end of any and all PD sessions we do!

Maybe they should take the place of the surveys we usually do?

Excellent questions to bring closure to a class Instead of the bell.

I have posted a number of resources from Ross Parker and this one requires a bit of time to understand…and yes, I think it is worth the time. The directions he provides in the upper right hand corner describe how a student should use this visual, as a tool to “steer & assess your own learning.”

Our students need to learn how to self-reflect and this tool has the potential to engage students and assist them in reflecting on their work regarding topics studied in technology.

You may download this visual as a png, pdf or pages document on the website. Take some time to check it out and see what you think.

In this post Jackie Gerstein raises the question "if the research on the process of learning is compared to the practices being implemented in school, does this research influence school practices?"

After reflecting on her experience at school she shares five questions (shown in the image above) that will help guide learning:

* Is failure viewed as normal and as a productive part of the learning process?

* Is learning spaced out over time rather than crammed into a short time period?

* Are distractions during learning normalized?

* Is the learning practiced often and in a variety of contexts?

* Is the learning playful and fun? (especially important when one gets stuck at an impasse)

Each is discussed and there is also a link to a short video that provides a brief overview of learning from the book How We Learn by Benedict Carey.

Do you share current research on learning strategies with your learners? This post also references a post from Mind/Shift that discusses current learning strategies. Click through to the post to learn more and consider sharing this information with your learners as well as parents and staff in your school.
