Microsoft is giving us an amazing new learning tool . . .
with their recent launch of Reflect in Microsoft Teams for Education.
Reflect prompts students to check in about how they’re feeling, and even uses emojis and little monsters to connect facial expressions and body language to emotional vocab. This might help students with limited reading respond, but may also help students who are working on understanding social cues like facial expressions and body language.
Reflect is a FREE tool!
The tool also lets students see their responses over time to look for patterns. Of course, another key step is teachers following up on concerning responses.
In March, they added the ability to build these self-assessments into OneNote. Reflect has increased functionality in One Note. As the blog post says, it lets students self-assess their “Progress and satisfaction in learning, motivation to learn, confidence, and effort.”
