Personal Reflective Journals

As a professional developer, you may not only want to reflect on your practice, you may want to reflect on your readings, conferences, classroom visits, and even from viewing videos or websites and how they can help your practice. You can keep a journal that is either in a table form or database with the following sections:

  • Title
  • Author or presenter
  • Main topic
  • Interesting points
  • Use in My Practice

The only way we can improve our practice as professional developers and how we help teachers integrate technology into the curriculum, we need to be up on the latest research. We can set up time on a regular basis during the week to read, reflect, and learn.
