Using the FotoFeedback Method to Increase Reflective Learning in the Millennial Generation
Tornabene, Ladona; Nowak, Amy Versnik; Vogelsang, Lisa
Journal of Effective Teaching, v12 n2 p80-90 2012
This current generation of students, known as the Millennial Generation, has a propensity toward multi-tasking and a history of structured and tightly filled days. Reflection may not be viewed as productive and as conducive to learning as other "tasks" and thus may be neglected. However, by employing a methodology (photography) that joins up with their multi-media oriented learning style and voracious appetite for the visual, perhaps they will view the reflective process differently. The FotoFeedback Method is a highly flexible data-gathering tool, which combines photography with narrative discourse related to a topic or experience. This process empowers students to not only experience a moment in time, but to structure their preservation of this moment through the photo-graph. Then they can reflect upon the meaning of the topic/experience while viewing the visual, which can lead to deeper learning.
