Recording of the Session
- How can AI tools support reflective thinking for learners and professionals?
- In what ways does AI intersect with design abilities and mindsets to enhance the creative process behind reflection?
- What are the practical applications of AI in our daily reflective practices, and how can we integrate them effectively?
“Reflection is one of those suitcase words…that contains such a variety of meanings packed into them.” – Leticia (7:49)
“Reflection is a whole body process. Transforming experience into meaning to shape the future.” – Leticia (08:46)
“There should be rules of engagement which…should be part of whenever we are using an AI tool.” – Leticia (14:20)
Using AI-tools in the reflection process:
- Can provide prompts to encourage deeper reflection on experiences
- Allows externalization of thinking through conversations
- Can analyze reflections to identify themes and insights
It is important to be mindful of both the benefits and limitations of the tools:
- May push toward productivity rather than meaningful reflection
- Quality is dependent on thoughtfulness of user input
- Helps make invisible thinking visible for assessment
