Gibbs Reflective Cycle

“Reflection is part of learning and thinking. We reflect in order to learn something, or we learn as a result of reflecting, and the term ‘reflective learning’ emphasises the intention to learn from current or prior experience” (Moon 2004).

In the classroom, we often do reflection exercises with students at the end of a project. But is our curriculum approach effective? Students need to feel intellectual reward from completing a reflective task, rather than a feeling that the task is an afterthought.

I came across this presentation about the Gibbs reflective cycle.

It looks like a teacher has created this for their class, as the end of the process asks them to reflect on a piece of work. The presentation is a short one but it scaffolds the students thinking towards welcoming reflection as a part of the learning process.

How do you scaffold your reflective tasks in the classroom?
