Reflecting on Learning micro-lesson

Do you struggle with balancing your kids’ screen time with their education? Say hello to 1Question, the app that solves this problem with a fun twist! Our app lets your child earn screen time minutes in their favourite apps by watching educational videos and correctly answering quiz questions. And the best part? You get to decide which apps to lock behind learning using 1Question. 

Learning time​

Kids learn by watching short, engaging video lessons.

This lesson is all about reflecting on your learning. So, scientists have shown that one way to become a better learner is to reflect on your learning. This means thinking about your learning and asking yourselves questions such as how you feel about the learning, what went well, and what didn't work so well. We can reflect on our learning at any point. This includes before, during, and after the learning. We can reflect in our heads, but it can be even more useful to write down the reflections. That way, we can look back at them at a future date. Sometimes the reflections might be quick and other times they might be in more depth. There are no set questions we should ask when we reflect but here are some ones that might be useful to try. What learning strategies helped me learn and where might I use them again? What strategies didn't work so well and why? What were my barriers to learning if there were any and what might my next steps be for my learning?
