How Writing a Learning Journal Can Increase Critical Thinking Skills

How Writing a Learning Journal Can Increase Critical Thinking Skills | Instructional technology | Scoop.it
Remember reflection? That’s something we used to do occasionally before we all became addicted to checking our Web-enabled devices every few minutes for our much-needed digital data fixes. Prior to the mobile revolution, people could at times be seen staring off into space, just thinking. If you were to spot someone doing that today, you’d …

Um artigo bastante pertinente que nos remete para uma importante reflexão (Writing and keeping journals. A guide for educators and social practitioners)  sobre os benefícios associados à criação de um jornal, independentemente do propósito para o qual seja criado...

 

According to the American Library Association, by 2020, information on the Internet will be doubling every 15 minutes. Consuming information without taking the time to reflect is bad for the development of critical thinking skills. Without reflection, we become locked in a pattern of remembering and communicating information without taking the time to assess whether the information is true, utter garbage, or a valuable missing piece in a puzzle.[...]


Mark Smith

A journal is also a tool for self-discovery, an aid to concentration, a mirror for the soul, a place to generate and capture ideas, a safety valve for the emotions, a training ground for the writer, and a good friend and confidant. (op. cit.)

This is a great Idea of lesson plan. You can integrate productive skill with a little of exploration and the use of technology. it is new and fun way for the students to write.

Augmented reality without all the fancy hardware. Locations can be tagged as well as historical events and other data. There are many uses for Aurasma in primary and secondary schools and it would be a wonderful tool to help make museum exhibitions come to life.

Dennis T OConnor's curator insight, July 16, 2014 7:08 PM

Author Andrew Miller poses a what if question that resonates with me:

Moving Past "Course-Based" PBL

Due to the antiquated restraints of the education system, most educators are forced to implement PBL in a "course-based" manner. This means that the project occurs within the traditional discipline structures, where there may be integration, but learning is framed within grades and competencies. In addition, start and stop times, driven by the Carnegie unit, force teachers to start and stop a project for all of their students around the same time. What if PBL wasn't held to antiquated rules of time, space, and discipline constructs? In that ideal situation, students could be engaged in personalized projects.
