C. Reflect on Lesson and Revise as Necessary

Reflection is an important aspect of all multimedia activities -- for both students and teachers.

Student Reflections

Student reflections are designed to encourage students to think about what they learned during the activity and how it connects to their prior knowledge. Your students will often need help with this process; help them understand what you want them to gain from looking back over their work. In the beginning, you may have to be very specific about what you are asking them to reflect upon and how to express it. You might start them off with a short list of questions appropriate to their age level, or you could ask them to help you generate some questions.

Student reflections can take the form of journals, discussion boards, concept maps, or presentations. Reflections can take place throughout the process (for long term projects) or at the end of the project.

Teacher Reflections

Teacher reflections are extremely important, though they need not be as formal. Here are a few questions to get you started:

General Reflections

  • How would you describe your personal teaching philosophy?
  • What kinds of teaching strategies and methodologies would an observer in your classroom notice?
  • What kind of professional growth have you experienced over the past five years?
  • What are your teaching goals for the next five years?
  • What kinds of steps have you taken to improve your teaching?
  • How have you made innovations in your classroom curriculum?

Specific Reflections

  • What was"great" with this activity?
  • What was "not so great" with this activity?
  • What would you change if you were to conduct the same activity again?
