The Intersection of Web 2.0 Technologies and Reflective Journals: An Investigation of Possibilities, Potential and Pitfalls

 

Dr. O'Connell uses reflective journals to facilitate deep learning & assessment in his field studies courses.

Thinking is HARD! Journalling helps you think.

He uses the DEAL & ICE approach:

Describe

Explain

Articulate Learning

&

Ideas

Connections

Extensions

He has the learners make connections and discuss applications.

The reflect ON and IN practice (Schön)

IN= in the moment, with mobiles (prospective) & disposable film cameras (no Undo/CntrlZ/deletions with film and deletions mean almost as much kept photos)

ON= later, written in hindsight (Retrospective)

Writing daily through Bloom's levels you move from habitual to critical.
