Encouraging students to reflect on their learning means providing them with questions that provoke authentic and personal responses. The flip side of that is then providing the time, the tools and the support for students to record that reflection in a student-centered, tech-rich environment.

Student reflections can take many forms, but more and more we’re seeing video reflections becoming popular.

At Peoples Academy Middle Level, in Morrisville VT, students are encouraged to reflect on their learning by creating screencasts. The screencast method is simple: students narrate over a slideshow of images documenting their learning. These screencasts can then be added to student’s digital portfolio, as well as being shared with families.
