Electronic Documentation of Learning: Alternate Reflective Discussion Formats

Ann Sherman, Angela Rokne

Abstract


An electronic reflective journaling process is described here. Second year preservice teachers engaged with their professors through an electronic documentation of learning tool that was transformed over the period of a term. The practice of sharing, analyzing, deliberating and making professional judgments in a supportive, on-line, reflective process enhanced the ability of these new teachers to truly grasp the experiences they were engaged in. The process invited them to explore their beliefs and practices in ways that moved them beyond the simple functioning as a teacher, to truly becoming a teacher.

Keywords: preservice teachers; electronic reflective journaling; teacher education
