Have you ever forced yourself to do something until it becomes a habit?
When I was in my teacher training back in 2006-2009, my lecturers introduced us to keeping a reflective journal. We needed to write down our thoughts and opinions about what we had learnt on that particular day. Write about the most significant thing that you learnt. We needed to do it almost daily!
back to the reflective journal. After a while doing it because we were asked to do it, it then started to become a habit until I found the usefulness of having a blog and reflection. I love doing it now. My mind always wants to reflect after certain situations that happened to me or in my surroundings. trying to learn from it or at least to consider what else can e done to make things better. I think I became a reflective practitioner myself and would love to explore this more specifically with other educators. Will reflection be helpful for them too? maybe a yes to some and maybe a no to the others. You never know until you try!
What say you?
