Reflection (ONLINE CLASS)-Digital Technologies, Communication and Education


There is Full time/ part time students and distance learners in my course
I am full time student
Must show that I know enough in technology
I choose one of the top 10 writers because 60% of my grade for Communication in Education is assigned based on your engagement with reflective practice, as evidenced through five entries made in my personal journal or blog space. You will do the five entries if you do this right,
First, Please read book chapter by David Boud and the reading Word file also listens to the mp3 (in the attachment)
On Tuesday we had an online class and we should write a reflection about (the first 3 weeks, and your experience of the shared online/on-campus synchronous teaching session in week 4) we should focus on this experience (class online) and what you have learned from it. try to make your reflection not just a description of what happened in a particular situation, but to explore why it might have done so, and what you can learn from this. what lessons can you take from this experience, in order to improve other classes you may do in the future?.
please read my friends’s reflection espically Abi,Ting and Hasan (who were with me in the onlineclaas) and the feedback by my course leader. So you can know how to write.

A learning journal should be a personal document and there is no point offering strict guidelines as to what one should contain. But as a very broad suggestion, consider addressing the following questions:
1. First, please write and then post a short account of a previous learning experience that you were disappointed with. Try to answer these questions:
• What happened? (what did you do?/ what did others do?)
• What did you experience?
• How did you feel?
• Why did that happen? Reflect on your own behaviour (what could you have done differently?) and that of others (what could they have done differently).
• What did you learn?
• How could you use this learning in your future practice?
My course leader said: ‘’ The worst kind of ‘reflection’ (it’s not reflection at all) is a learning journal which just records events: ‘In the class today we did this, then we did that, then Drew said that, then I went home and wrote this’, etc. Instead, incorporate some discussion of: how did the events make you feel? Why? What did you learn from it? What lessons could you take forward into your own practice?
how this activity connects with reflective practice. The key points are, I think, the observation that reflection does not just have to take place after the event, but during, and before; that the very act of writing is itself something which aids reflection (in other words, writing something down turns it into something more than just thinking about it); and that a journal does not just have to include words but could contain, or be entirely based on, other media, like video.
Ultimately the reflective learning journal should serve as a record for how your thinking – about ‘communication in education’, but more importantly, about yourself, your studies, and your professional identity – have evolved as a result of studying on this course. It may be that you want to be critical; it may be that some will write very introspective journals, whereas others will take in news events and develop a political stance; it may be that some journals engage deeply with comments made on the original posts and revise them substantially whereas other entries get presented exactly as they were first written, maybe only a few minutes after the end of the relevant class. As long as you remember that the journal needs to be more than just a description of events, then really, everyone should be quite capable of at least passing this part of the assignment. Journals that get better marks will be those which are creative; engaging; refer to the literature; show development in your thinking and attitudes; stick to the point and avoid irrelevant detail; and are well-written in a technical sense.’’
