17 Gathering Information

You should have most of the data to drive your reflection already on hand. Some of it will come from the informal reflecting you and your students engaged in during the implementation and usage process. A great deal of it should also come from your validation process (see “Validating”). Before you begin the more formal stage of your reflection, gather and review the information you have accrued about the technology and your experiences in implementing it with your students. It is possible that your memory of the experience does not completely align with your notes, student feedback, and the results of your validation process.  Beginning your reflection by looking back at all of the available information will help you to make a more accurate assessment of the value of the tool to your particular context.
