Students Connecting to their Learning
Attached are some samples of students reflecting on their learning of the core competencies, Communication, Creativity and Social Responsibility. When our school first began surveying students about their learning, very few could identify what they were learning and why. Now, through the change in approach in how we present information and feedback to students, and their use of e portfolios, students have become more aware of what is happening in their classrooms and why. They also have a much better grasp of how well they are doing and where they can go to receive appropriate feedback on their progress. When asked about their learning, students now refer to their portfolios for evidence of work that they have posted and can speak on what they are most proud of in terms of effort, achievement and overall interest in what they have learned.
