Integrating a Reflective Framework within Web-Based Templates for Student and Teacher Self-Study.
Hoban, Garry
This paper explains how a World Wide Web site was designed to assist preservice teacher education students in reflecting upon their learning and to assist a teacher educator to reflect upon his teaching in university classes. The students reflected on their learning experiences in university classes using a three-phase reflective framework: (1) analysis; (2) synthesis; and (3) theorizing. In the last phase, the students developed a metaphor to represent an optimum classroom learning environment. The Web site was designed using a FileMaker Pro database with a template for each influence on learning (personal, teaching, peer, and situational) to assist students in managing, sharing, and theorizing about their reflections. Students claimed that the Web site supported their reflections and the metaphor helped them to conceptualize the dynamics of classroom relationships, which also provided ongoing data for teacher reflection.
