Novigado webinar #5 - Learning journals: developing reflecting skills for active learners

Active Learning is reflective learning indeed. Active students need to reflect on their actions in order to adapt their learning strategy and direct their next learning opportunity. Students prove to show great reflective skills as we let them know it's important and we give them time for it.

During lockdown in their school, one big question according to Xavier Garnier, teacher at LP2I (FR), was "how to fairly assess students when they're home?". They discovered that digital learning journals turned out to be a both innovative and practical answer, as they can help students think back on what they did, what they learnt doing it and the meaning of learning it. Learning journals are still used today as the school turns back to face-to-face teaching.

In this webinar, Xavier Garnier, presents the LP2i school's case study on learning diaries and invites the participants to reflect their practice: do you already use a learning journal or a similar method with your students? What which purposes?
