Facebook as a Tool for Pedagogical Reflection

I came across an interesting post from a museum educator who uses Facebook as a tool to reflect upon memorable moments of teaching and learning that arise during school tours through the gallery spaces. The only limits David Bowles imposes on the documenting of these moments of reflection is to “try to stick to the facts, and not interpret the child’s ideas…describe the context succinctly, and stick to a few sentences at most.” Check the some of the funny, quirky and insightful moments of pedagogical interaction highlighted in his post: http://educatorinnovator.org/status-update-facebook-as-a-reflection-tool/  The post offered me the opportunity to fondly recall and relive some of my past experiences with museum education.
