Learners' Reflections in Technological Learning Environments: Why To Promote and How To Evaluate.
Rimor, Rikki; Kozminsky, Ely
In this study, 24 9th-grade students investigated several issues related to modern Israeli society. In their investigation, students were engaged in activities such as data search, data sorting, making inquiries, project writing, and construction of a new computerized database related to the subjects of their investigations. Students were encouraged to write personal reflection notes after each session throughout the five-month period of their work. Studying these reflections improves understanding of the way students think about themselves as learners, about the task's demands, and about strategies that are needed to deal with the demands. A tool for analyzing the reflections based on Flavell's metacognitive components is proposed. Replicas are analyzed according to 18 dimensions. This tool enables comparison of different patterns of reflections among students, as well as detection of dominant dimensions within the student's own protocols of reflection.
