Supporting Self-Reflection in Personal Learning Environments Through User Feedback
Self-regulated learning (SRL) is a crucial skill in the era when people need to learn during their whole lives. However, the traditional educational system, which is teacher-centered, does not cultivate this competence very well. In this paper we propose an approach to stimulate re ection of learners about their own learning processes, which is an important part of SRL. The approach is based on a mashup recommender that provides guidance in creating Personal Learning Environments and a widget supporting self-re ection of learners. They receive information on their usage of individual widgets and provide feedback assigning learning activities to these widgets. The aim is to raise awareness of the learners on their learning activities and how they cover the whole spectrum of SRL. We expect that this tool complemented by other ones, will support self-regulation of learners.
