CBL Reflection

Let's Reflect!

Over the next few days I would like students to reflect on Challenge Based Learning in our classroom this term.

The following prompts will help you with this process.

The way you present your reflections is up to you- you may like to create a video, record audio, tell a story, write a blog post, make a Glog, the choice is yours!

I can't wait to see what you come with!

  1. All these questions help us understand what we are learning and what we are doing.
    This makes our learning easier so that we know whats going on.
