Innovative Learner Series: Reflect

Learner Series Intro:

Welcome to PyxisEdu’s Innovative Learners Series. We believe that every time you walk into your classroom you’re not delivering content, you’re providing opportunities. Every activity you work so hard to plan, every lesson you deliver is an opportunity for learning. This series will explore one of these Awesome 8 Learning Opportunities. Feel free to use individual resources, but to get a more in-depth understanding of this opportunity, we have organized the resource into a logical order. 

Collection Description:  

This collection will explore what it means for students to reflect. Reflection is the intentional practice of thinking about and analyzing one's own learning. By reflecting, students recognize and celebrate their own growth and identify opportunities for improvement. When students reflect, they make more sense of their learning and make better decisions about their future learning opportunities. 

Guiding Questions:

  • What types of activities stimulate students to reflect on their own learning?
  • What information/data do students need in order to identify gaps in their own learning?
  • How can reflection lead to deeper learning? 


  • By the end of this collection, you will be able to:
  • Understand how effective personal reflection can lead to deeper learning
  • Understand multiple strategies that use technology to help students reflect on learning
  • Create an activity that enables students to effectively reflect on their own learning
  • Modify and build a technology rich, instructionally sound lesson plan that allows for students to identify both areas of strength and gaps in their own learning
