The Art of Reflection: What you need to do to improve your practice

The Art of Reflection: What you need to do to improve your practice | Ict4champions | Scoop.it
Reflective Teaching is a habit of mind that requires consciously thinking about how teaching practices impact students’ learning.

 

Reflection is a tool to self-assess your practice. Once you have collected this information, plan a course of action so that you can implement change.  You might decide to find more research on an area where you need improvement, attend a conference, or read magazines or books related to the topic for which you are seeking information.  

 

Once you begin to implement changes be sure you take the time to reflect once again.

 

===> Reflection is a continuous cycle that begins once you develop the habit of mind to think about your practice. <===

iPad As....

iPad As.... | Ict4champions | Scoop.it

iPads have exploded throughout schools and classrooms. Their flexibility, versatility, and mobility make them a phenomenal learning tool. As teachers seek ways to integrate these devices, we recommend focusing on specific learning goals that promote critical-thinking, creativity, collaboration, and the creation of student-centric learning environments..

Maggie Verster's insight:

I like the step in the right dirention here but would like to take it further than....I want my students to.... by asking why should they e.g. blog? So an additional step is needed.... what is the final learning that you want to happen because of....

Gaye Taylor's comment, April 13, 2013 4:42 AM
I agree - from my thesis "In the past, ICT was developed as ‘instrumental skills’, but later a ‘technological fluency movement’ arose which focused on ‘enabling individuals to express themselves creatively in technology’ and emphasized the ‘importance of teaching how to learn and think with technology’ (Bers, 2007, p.5-6). The idea is that people learn to use technology as a tool in order to express themselves, as one would use a language, rather than the technology being used for its own sake. By using technology ‘creatively and in personally meaningful ways’ (Bers, 2007, p.6) it was envisioned that, with the constant use of technology, pupils would not only become computer literate but also start to develop new ways to think about themselves, others and their relationships with others.
