Re-imagining Formative Assessment with Digital Tools (Part 3)

In Part 3 of our series on Re-imagining Formative Assessment, we look at the power of practicing self-reflection when developing students’ Learning to Learn skills. This week's Formative Assessment activity, Hold up a Mirror invites students to reflect upon the knowledge and skills they have attained, as well as considering the areas they still need to work on. While simple in essence, such reflective practices can form the basis of a powerful learning tool that can be developed to encourage metacognition and a deeper understanding of the strategies that work for individual students, leading to a more personalised learning experience. Educator, Marija Petreska explores how we can use Flipgrid and OneNote with this activity to create ‘safe-spaces’ for reflective journaling, as well as for charting progress and exploring strategies for success.
