Learning Philosophy 2.0 – Rachel

My initial learning philosophy was: Meaningful application of facts and concepts, formative and summative assessments, collaborative classroom design to facilitate discussion and flipped classroom.

At the end of the class, my learning philosophy has expanded to include the use of Web 2.0 tools such as blogs which allows us to reflect on our learning; use of Diigo for social bookmarking and peer sharing; Google Apps for online collaboration and community of learners; cultivate personal learning networks via Twitter; growing from passive consumers of content to creating content for sharing via YouTube or other similar platforms; organizing artifacts in an e-portfolio as evidence of learning; for f2f classroom learning environment – use of Socrative for interactive lectures. Assessment for learning, as learning, and in learning remains important.


The opportunities for learning new tools was quite a stretch for me but I am really grateful because the knowledge gained is relevant to my current work. I thank Phil and all my classmates for the constructive feedback in this learning process.
