The Role of the Reflection Journal in Making Efficient the Learning Activity within Formal Frames
Stan, Cornelia
Acta Didactica Napocensia, v5 n2 p67-76 2012
One of the most efficient ways in helping the students improve their academic outcomes is by giving them the time and the instruments they need to develop their metacognitive skills when learning. Journals can help the students identify the strategies they used or the way they may use it and subsequently appraise their efficiency. Building-up a frame via hints and orientation questions, such as "What could you do next?" or "How do the strategies you have chosen work?", may offer the students the structure determining them to think in a metacognitive manner. Many students, especially those with learning difficulties, may beneficiate from an explicit and repetitive training, concerning the metacognitive strategies.
