Everyone is encouraged to submit a final reflection post.  Please share your thoughts on what you’ve learned, how you’ll put what you’ve learned into action and how the program worked out for you.

PLEASE GET CREATIVE!! Use whatever tool you like to create your final reflection. You can do a blog post like you have for other topics. Or do something else! A video? A google slide deck? An Adobe Spark page? Create a manifesto that reflects what you’ve learned? Whatever you want to do.

The following questions are just guidelines for your reflection. You don’t need to answer every question, though you can if you like! (And yes, your final reflection does count towards your professional development hours, just as any other topics do.)

1: What did you learn?

  • How did you put what you learned into action at school? Personally?
  • Did you expand your Personal Learning Network? Make new professional connections?
  • What challenges did you face during the workshop?
  • Any big “fails”? Any huge successes? What did you learn from trying, failing, succeeding?
  • Were there projects that didn’t work out well for you?
  • Other thoughts?

2: What’s next?

  • Did you start some projects that you’ll be following up on in the future?
  • Are you planning to share what you’ve learned with others?
  • What other professional development projects will you be pursuing?
  • Other thoughts?

3: Did you like learning this way?

  • For some of you, this might have been your first experience with this kind of independent, online, self-driven learning. Did this work for you?
  • What did you most value about the program? What didn’t work well?
  • Would you do it again?
  • Other thoughts?


  • Create your final reflection.
  • Post it to your blog, or link to it from your blog.
  • Copy the URL (webpage address) for your post.
  • Return to your Google Classroom. Find the assignment page for this lesson and follow the directions for turning in and sharing your work.

*Only for students participating in the workshop for PD credit hours through the Google Classroom.

Thank you for participating!
