A Technique For Increasing Deeper Learning And Higher Order Thinking: “Today I Learned”

Dear Colleagues,

“The research on how people learn continues to show the value in helping students make meaning and learn through reflection. The process of reflection helps students take a step back to carefully consider that they learned, absorb the information, and process what it means to them. Fortunately, fostering reflection in the classroom can be relatively quick and easy.” In the post below from The Higher Ed Professor, a simple, but powerful reflection activity, “Today I Learned” is described.
