Abstract

Abstract: In graphic design (art) education, reflective learning can effectively help students go through abstraction, confirm knowledge retention, and build up strong project management skills. Blogging, a virtual social communication tool, has been found to foster learning in a constructive learning framework with affordance in self-expression, social interaction, individual reflection, and collective reflection. In a recent qualitative study of the incorporation of weblogs in graphic design curriculum, the following questions were answered: a) is blogging an effective reflective pedagogical technology for reflection in art education? b) what are the obstacles in students’ using of weblogs for reflective learning in art education?
