We know that reflecting on learning helps us retain and consolidate our experiences. When looking for student opportunities for reflection, a tool like Edublogs can make a reflection exercise fun, relevant, and encourage a broader audience.
Edublogs as a professional portfolio
Ask students to choose samples of their best work and then provide context, explaining why it’s their best work.
Edublogs as a reflection journal
A blog can make a great platform for a dedicated reflection journal. Reflection journals can be very helpful when you want students to see the relationship between theory and their real lived experience.
Edublogs for … blogging!
When students have a real audience, writing experiences become more valuable. Blogging platforms make it easy to bring in links, videos, documents, and images. Need ideas? Check out Vanderbilt University’s resource page.
