    • 1. @topgold Reflective Audio Journaling
    • 2. @topgold I’m Bernie Goldbach. Teaching e-crits at Limerick School of Art & Design (The backgrounds in these slides remind me of my neglected garden.)

    • 4. This #ELSS13 presentation invites peer review to an evolving process of audio journaling (audiologs) as part of critical reflection. We know: -- Reflective learning enhances personal development. -- Audio journaling challenges creative students. -- Our Bring Your Own Device World reduces one barrier to entry. -- Shared audio sparks development of community artefacts. @topgold
    • 5. @topgold Good Habits Help You Learn -- Reflective learning achieves greater results when integrated with audio blogging. -- Effective audiologs rarely fit a universal timetable. -- Reflective audio journaling augments but does not reduce the primacy of written work. -- Spoken thoughts offer a 360 feedback loop. Begin with self-directed analysis for reflective learning.
    • 6. @topgold Reflection Described -- Thinking with a purpose. -- Being critical but not being negative. -- Analysing how effective your learning is. -- Questioning an probing. -- Making judgments. -- Drawing conclusions.Reflective learning plays an important role in learning and personal development.

    • 11. @topgold Reflection Enticements -- Reflection complements study. -- When you reflect, you clarify your thoughts. -- Think out loud about difficult assignments. -- Use your audiolog to think about how academic topics relate to other areas of your experience. Some factors may entice students to embrace reflective audio journaling.

Several characteristics identify an audiolog.
    • 15. @topgold We Trust the Human Voice. "Levels of trust, commitment, and satisfaction from users all appear to be positively affected by the use of the human voice in social media.“ Doctoral research by Hyojung Park, University Missouri.
