The Art of Learning Journals explores the details of keeping, maintaining and using a learning journal. The learning journal is nothing more than a collection of notes, thoughts, drawings, sketches, observations and information which comes your way. It is kept in a collected space (such as a notebook) to enhance your learning, make connections and build upon prior knowledge.
There are a variety of options in learning journals including the details of illustrations, note-taking and reflection moments. The journal enhances the learning experience, creating opportunities for further expanding knowledge and making connections to prior information.
