Mason, Jon (2011) Scaffolding for integrated reflection. In Hirashima, Tsukasa (Ed.) Proceedings of the 19th International Conference on Computers in Education ICCE 2011, Asia-Pacific Society for Computers in Education (APSCE), Le Méridien Chiang Mai Hotel, Chiang Mai, pp. 587-594.
This paper presents some theoretical perspectives that might inform the design and development of information and communications technology (ICT) tools to support integrated (in-session) reflection and deep learning during e-learning. The role of why questioning provides the focus of discussion and is informed by the literature on critical thinking, sense-making, and reflective practice, as well as recent developments in knowledge management, computational linguistics and automated question generation. It is argued that there exists enormous scope for the development of ICT scaffolding targeted at supporting reflective practice during e-learning. The first generations of e-Portfolio tools provide some evidence for the significance of the benefits of integrating reflection into the design of ICT systems; however, following the review of a number of such systems, as well as a range of ICT applications and services designed to support e-learning, it is argued that the scope of implementation is limited.
